Irish Music

The Boils

Three of Chicago's most seasoned Irish traditional musicians came together in 2005 to form The Boils, a high-energy trio delivering a potent blend of jigs, reels and songs. Featuring Jim Conway on harmonica and tin whistle, Jack Callahan on guitar and vocals, and Mike Austin on bodhran and percussion, The Boils possess a deep respect for tradition but also infuse it with their own interpretation of the music, reflecting their Irish-American heritage.
