The James Brothers
The James Brothers are not really outlaws, neither are they brothers and only one of them is called James.
They come from the lands down under – Australia and New Zealand to be precise; lands in which the traditional songs and tunes of the British Isles have evolved their own unique characteristics, like musical marsupials. And it’s these songs and tunes, and several of their own making, that The James Brothers have united to play.
The James Brother who is called James is Sydney-born James Fagan while the James Brother who isn’t called James is Jamie McClennan. Both men work primarily with their wives but The James Brothers allows them to be centre stage – playing the music of their roots and telling jokes without fear of being told off.
For Fagan and McClennan this is about bringing their distinct Antipodean-steeped folk to a new audience, with songs and tunes brought to life by a fraternal bond between two very silly, but captivatingly gifted musicians.
And that’s the James Brothers. Two men. Two Voices. Two Instruments… No Sheilas
