The Irish Brothers are Sandy “Sandyman” Flynn and “Captain” George Hergen. This is a unique team - Sandyman comes from the mountains of Western North Carolina with the Captain hailing from the canyons of New York City. The two started performing together thirty-five years ago when they worked ‘suit’ jobs at IBM. Both draw from their Irish heritage for material - their music practically maps the Irish cultural integration into the ‘new country’ - from traditional Irish ballads, to original songs of love, drinking, revolution and redemption. Sandy is a former songwriter on Music Row (Tree-Sony/ATV) in Nashville, and toured nationally and internationally with the band Cullowhee for 10 years, sharing the stage with the likes of The Kingston Trio and Jimmy Buffett. George started singing and playing after his first visit to New York’s Greenwich Village in the mid-1960s. George honed his craft by traveling throughout Ireland with the great Tommy Makem. The team received the name “Irish Brothers” following a performance at The Folk Alliance several years ago in Memphis, Tennessee.
