About Finch & The Magpies
“Our band is a folk trio consisting of a concertina, fiddle and guitar. We nest in Utah County but we’ll go anywhere the music takes us! We love playing all kinds of folk but we’ll always have a soft spot in our hearts for Irish Trad! Our sound has been described as Irish Trad meets Americana, with a little bit of western flair sprinkled on top.
“We started as a simple fiddle and concertina duo but our group quickly grew once we met our guitarist and discovered that he shared our drive and passion for folk music. We started playing some simple small gigs and have been growing from there. Now, we’re working on our summer schedule and growing our setlist.
“We love the warmth and intimacy of acoustic music, as well as the excitement that comes from getting a crowd up on their feet. Our repertoire ranges from jigs and reels older than your great-great-grandpa to music you’d hear in a game released last year.”
