The Press Gang perform the songs and dance music of Ireland. Based in Portland, Maine, these four musicians have become popular over the past nine years for their skillful playing and deep understanding of the music—and for their humorous stage presence.

The band features Hanz Araki on flute and vocals, Chris “Junior” Stevens on accordion and concertina, Owen Marshall on guitar and bouzouki, Alden Robinson on fiddle.

New Record – “Fortune It May Smile”

Our newest recording, and our first recording as a quartet. Featuring a selection of jigs, reels, polkas, slides, a new waltz, and several songs.
