The Drowsy Lads
Lakeside’s Sesquicentennial summer concert series kicks off with The Drowsy Lads, a Lakeside favorite known for their spirited arrangements, original bluegrass compositions and true obsession for traditional Irish music. The Drowsy Lads will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 26 in Hoover Auditorium.
Formed in 2003 by Columbus brothers Daniel and John McKewen and friend Bryan Brookes, the lads 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.
