The Maguires is a lively and engaging traditional Irish music band from Wicklow, Ireland. Having played extensively in Ireland since 2014, The Maguires made their US touring debut in 2017, wowing audiences and receiving standing ovations in six states, including performances at Montana Folk Festival and Milwaukee Irish Fest where they played to festival crowds of c. 5000. "Insanely awesome" is how the Milwaukee festival organisers charaterised The Maguires performances. The band consists of three very talented, accomplished and experienced young musicians: Emma (18) on fiddle, flute and whistle; Aoife (16) on concertina and uilleann pipes; and Sean (13) on bodhran; with Dad, Philip, completing the lineup on guitar. The Maguires have a proven pedigree as crowd pleasers at festivals and their young ages belie their musical maturity and stage experience. The band has a fan base of over 42k followers on social media and they have had over 3 million views of their videos online.
