The force behind the FOS Brothers has always been Dave and Sam McCrory. Brought up in Belfast during the height of the troubles, their sensibilities derive from hard schooling on the streets and strict Northern Irish parents.
They have collaborated with percussionist Rom Dobbs for over 25 years. Rom’s fascination for world music can be attributed to his Dad’s influence as head at Dartington Music College.
Bassist Peter Bingham is best known for his band Waulk Elektrik who became super popular on the Roots music circuit in the 90’s.
The band move seamlessly from tear-jerking Irish ballads to full-on Floydian space rock. The FOS Brothers treat their audience to a shared experience and are equally suited to pin-drop silence Arts Centres or packed festival marquees.
“Highly recommended to lovers of folk with a progressive world music twist. In full flow, this band is phenomenal without losing tough of their folk root” – Tony Covill
“Bucolic folk has a psychedelic head-fit” – Ritz Acoustic Club
