DRISCOLL and SMITH
Driscoll and Smith is a regional band
(usually a duo, but sometimes upwards of five people, depending) consisting of Jack Driscoll on Guitar, harmonica, mandolin,
and lead and harmony vocals, and Don Smith on Banjo, tin whistle, Tenor Guitar, concertina, mandolin, and lead and harmony
vocals….They play a variety of music, specializing in Irish and Celtic Folk music, but are very accomplished in other
genres such as Classic Rock, Country, Folk, Maritime, and Novelty songs, all depending upon the preference of the audience
at the time. They are sought after as festival performers, as is evidenced by their many appearances at
Regional and Local Festivals and Fairs, including the East Durham Irish Festival, the Andy McGann Traditional Music Festival,
The Hunter Mtn. Celtic Faire, the Hooley on the Hudson, and many, more…
They have shared
the stage, and opened for many well known performers, such as Tommy Makem, the Clancy Brothers, Pete Seeger,
Jim Connors(Kingston Trio and John Denver band), Tommy Sands, Paddy Reilly, The WolfeTones, Andy Cooney, Uncle Floyd, Joe
Banjo Burke, Pat Roper, and many others….
As a band and on their own,
they have played all over the Tri State area, New England, Ohio, through the South(Washington
DC, Ga., Al., Fl., Va., NC, SC., )and up and down the California coast…
They are frequent
performers in East Durham, NY(the “Irish Alps”), have been referred to by many people as “the Irish Smothers
Brothers”, and Have been called the “Worlds Best Bar Band”(really!). They were the last
band to perform in Tommy Makem’s Irish Pavillion in Manhattan, and have appeared at many Beacon Sloop Club Festivals(founded
by Pete Seeger besides being a great American and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, a friend and mentor of Tommy Makem and the
Clancy Brothers, and Banjo Teacher of Tommy Makem) The first time they were heard by Pete Seeger he said
“Who are those Guys ?”
Due to their vast song list (covering many styles of music),
and instrumental virtuosity, they can bring a room “to life”, and keep a room in business, long after many bands
have lost their audience….
