THE BOXTY GANG
“WEST TOWARDS HOME” ALBUM LAUNCH

The Boxty Gang are the 2016 runners-up of the Michigan Irish Music Initiative and have performed independently in festivals and venues in Ireland, Belgium, Norway, and The USA to date. Their debut album of original and traditional arrangements of folk music, aptly titled ‘West Towards Home’, features several notable guest musicians in the Irish Music scene and will be released in late June.
