The Ill Winds are a ‘traditional meets contemporary’ folk band, based in Cork City, Ireland.
Starting out as ‘The Newfoundland Trio’ in 2016, The Ill Winds have become a staple of the live music scene in Cork City. The band are known for creating a huge sound for a three piece act, combining the Irish traditional sensibilities of Waterford’s Tony Dunne (accordion, bodhrán) with the alternative folk backgrounds of both Michael Grace (vocals,guitar,mandolin,percussion) and Paul O’Shea (drums, vocals, percussion, mandolin).
In the short time that The Ill Winds have been together, they have mesmerised audiences in the UK, Denmark and as well as at home in Ireland. Keep up to date with all of their upcoming dates in the sidebar right here on the official Unemployable website!
