The Drowsy Lads
The summer concert series kicks off with The Drowsy Lads. The band, appearing for the sixth time in Lakeside, is known for its spirited arrangements, original bluegrass compositions and true obsession for traditional Irish music. The Drowsy Lads will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 27 at the Steele Memorial Bandstand.
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.
