Evening Music: The Drowsy Lads

 Friday, June 26, 2020 
7:30pm-9:00pm  
Steele Memorial Bandstand

Lakeside continues its exciting outdoor summer series with The Drowsy Lads, a band known for their spirited arrangements, original bluegrass compositions and true obsession for traditional Irish music.

While some seating is provided in Bettinger Park, guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets and to practice safe social distancing. In the case of inclement weather, this event will be cancelled.

Formed in 2003 by Columbus brothers Daniel and John McKewen and friend Bryan Brookes, they added friend Josh Franck and his father, Phil, after breaking into the Irish music scene.

Each lad is a multi-instrumentalist, and the combined lineup includes fiddle, button accordion, tenor banjo, flute, whistle, guitar, bouzouki, Uilleann pipes, 5-string banjo, concertina and bodhran.

The group has played five previous concerts at Lakeside, as well as a variety of Irish festivals in Cincinnati, Louisville and the Dublin Irish Festival in Dublin, Ohio.
