Formed in February 2010, Tim Rogers and The Clew Bay Critters Are a stringband based in Westport County Mayo.. They play a good timey mix of Old time songs, wild fiddle tunes, acoustic swing and bluegrass standards.
The Critters were hunted down and tamed by Tim Rogers , previously known as the fiddler for the Rough Deal Stringband. In this combo Tim plays fiddle, 5-string banjo and mandolin. He’s joined by husband and wife Dan Delaney on fiddle and Dearbhla Ryan on string bass. Rounding out the sound is Brian Lofthouse on guitar and mandolin. All of the critters sing.
