Most of the great bands from the 1970’s Irish Folk Revival have gone. We are left with only digitally re–mastered discs to remind us of past musical excellence. Why then have The Sands Family survived into the 21st century? How is it that this band of siblings are still performing to rapt audiences across the world? The answer can be found just a few minutes into their gig.
Their songs strike a chord with their audiences. The wit and humour of the stories and jokes are infectious. The rapport is intimate and immediate. These four talented musicians and gifted writers are also highly skilled entertainers. When they do get together as The Sands Family; Anne, Ben, Colum and Tommy enjoy the experience just as much as their guests.
