“The Press Gang is one of those rare bands that are ingenious, driving, thoughtful and yet have great respect for the tradition.”
– John Doyle
The Press Gang perform the instrumental dance music of Ireland on fiddle, accordion, and guitar. Based in Portland, Maine, these three musicians have become popular over the past four years for their skillful playing and deep understanding of the music–and for their humorous stage presence.
We are pleased to announce our new collaboration with Hanz Araki, flute player, singer, and one of our favorite musicians.
Called "an Irish music phenomenon in America", Hanz's brilliant playing and unique voice open a world of musical possibilities to us. We are honored to welcome him into the band!
