The young band BOXING BANJO is another of the new Ireland traditional bands that amaze with their talent and musical maturity at such young ages. Brothers Dara and Mick Healy hail from Castlebar, County Mayo and were playing from the time they could walk. Both are certified classroom teachers who are taking a break to devote their full time to the music. Dara, a multi-instrumentalist, is a master of the button-box, dances, and composes. Mick, who also has mastered many instruments, plays a dynamite banjo, is a well known Irish dancer, and has an enjoyable and calming voice. Joe McNulty is a star on the bodhran, fiddle and guitar, and Sean O’Meara is masterful on the guitar and bass. Together, they have been awarded 20 All Ireland titles!
