WoodSongs presents: The Makem & Spain Bros. and Runa at the Lyric Theatre

Makem & Spain Brothers

THE MAKEM & SPAIN BROTHERS are song collectors in the spirit of their forefathers preserving old folk songs and introducing a new generation to this rich musical history. The Makem’s continue the lineage of one of Irish music’s dynasties, begun by their grandmother Sarah Makem and father Tommy Makem, who is now considered an icon. The Spain Brothers, too, learned Irish songs at their father’s knee. This band of brothers have honed their craft over nearly two decades of international performances and are now one of the truly stalwart, road-tested Irish vocal groups performing. A host of various instruments and five male vocals, using precise three-part harmonies blend perfectly for what many have described as a wall of sound.


RUNA draws on the diverse musical backgrounds of its band members and offers a contemporary and refreshing approach to traditional and more recently composed Celtic material. This award winning ensemble includes members that hail from Philadelphia, Dublin, Canada and Louisville, KY and have played with Solas, Riverdance, Slide, Clannad, Fiddlers’ Bid, Moya Brennan, Eileen Ivers, Hazel O’Conner, Full Frontal Folk, Keith & Kristyn Getty, Barcó, Téada, and the Guy Mendilow Band. The band won recently won an Independent Music Awards for Best Song in World/Traditional Category. The band recently released their third album, ‘Somewhere Along the Road’.
