Men o'War Balladeers will be performing on the lawn of the Louis Miller Museum, Saturday, September 18th at 2 PM. 

The Men o’ War Balladeers are based in Cambridge, NY, and sing traditional Celtic and British Isles ballads and sea shanties. They perform with a vocals-focused, harmony-rich style, either unaccompanied or sensitively backed by acoustic guitar, Irish bouzouki, or concertina.

Formed in 2016, the band has recorded and self-produced two full length studio albums: "Rise with the Moon" (2017); and "Low Lie the Fields" (2019), and one EP: "Live at Hubbard Hall!" (2017).

The band’s current lineup includes Michael Raffel on baritone vocals, Jack Boggan on guitar and tenor vocals, Gordon McQuerrey on tenor vocals and percussion, and Kristoffer Andrew Ross on Irish Bouzouki, Concertina, guitar, and baritone vocals.
