Breaker Boys
LIVE MUSIC ON APRIL 13th!

Join in the music and merriment, come see the Breaker Boys perform live at The Epic Theater!

The Breaker Boys are an Irish and American folk band bringing to audiences of all ages the old songs of romance, courage, sorrow, and mirth with youthful energy and merriment like never before. Bringing a draught of vintage to the folks of a modern world, their delightful tales bring laughter, their haunting choruses tears, and their enchanting melodies a wonder. Join them in the sailor’s song, the lover’s tune, and the occasional burglar’s call as they raise a ruckus and knock the dust off the rafters for old time’s sake.

The band is comprised of a whole host of different instruments played by the five members: guitar, banjo, upright bass, bohdran, fiddle, penny whistle, flute, harmonica, banjolelle, mandolin, bouzouki, spoons, and tenor banjo.

They’ve performed at the Irving Arts Center, Trinity Hall, Camp Constantin, St. Francis Oktoberfest, Kath 910 am, and various bars and cafes in Texas. When not performing at a venue, they entertain crowds with a lively busking act, singing and playing the rousing choruses of lovers and fighters at places like The Deep Ellum Arts Festival and South lake Town Center.

The Breaker Boys recently won “The Best Performance Variety Award” at the Irving Talent Show.
