Feeling a bit camera shy


The principal songwriters, Joe and Ed Feighan, write about growing up Irish in America. Whiskey Island is at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio, where their Irish ancestors arrived as immigrants from the famine and just in time for the industrial revolution. The Feighan Brothers have been performing Traditional Irish Music since high school. After years of honing their skills, the duo formed the Whiskey Island Ramblers as a Celtic Rock vehicle for their favorite traditional songs and their original material. Most of their own songs are about real people and real events. Occasionally they venture into the Irish Twilight Zone where ghosts, sprites, wraiths and the like dwell. Cops, bus drivers, chimney sweeps, bartenders, gabbers, hot dog vendors, sailors, judges, mayors, parents, drinking buddies, girlfriends, lawyers, bumbling bureaucrats and musicians who drive around in junked up cars make their apearance on Whiskey Island and the surrounding industrial landscape. The Whiskey Island Ramblers illuminate these characters in song keeping in stride with the legacy of their storytelling ancestors who arrived on Whiskey Island nearly one hundred and fifty years ago.
