Still working on that hot first release.



The Ballagh Bunch began dancing as a family trio in the summer of 2001 when they performed for the entire summer in the Drayton’s Festival Theatre’s comedy “Canadian Loonie”. The show ran from June to August, with eight shows per week. Since then, they have added little brother Matthew to the group!
They have been guests on the Wingham Heritage Theatre Christmas Show, Fiddle and Feet at the Woodstock Market Centre Theatre, Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto, many local variety and fundraising shows, a host of fairs from Bracebridge to Brigden and produced a show for Clarica at the Toronto Congress Centre. The summer of 2009 found the Ballagh’s performing at the Govan Fiddle Festival in Saskatchewan, and instructing and performing at Celtfest in Naniamo, B.C.
The “Ballagh Bunch” had busy summers in 2004 , 2005 and 2006 competing successfully in many stepdance and fiddle contests across Ontario. They were also guests, along with their dancing mother and aunts (McMichael Sisters) at the Miami Fun and Fiddle Contest, in Miami Manitoba, October 2003. They performed as special guests at the 2005-2007 Newmarket Fiddle and Stepdance contest. They have most recently performed at the Drayton Festival Theatre during the month of August 2006 in the production “Sorry, I’m Canadian” with Neil Aitchison and again in 2008 in the return of “Sorry, I’m Canadian” at the Huron County Playhouse, Grand Bend and the King’s Wharf, Penetanguishene.
Calvin Vollrath, Brian Hebert, Natalie McMaster, and Graham Townsend are our greatest influences. Our show is unique in the fact that all members in the group are from the same family that entertain crowds using a multitude of different instruments.
The “Ballagh Bunch” live on a farm outside Teeswater, Ontario with Dad (Gary) and Mom (Janice).
Together, with M.C. Gary on bass guitar, Jan on piano and dancing and Devan, Michael, Paige and Matthew on fiddles and stepdancing both group and makes for a dynamic demonstration of family harmony!
