Ballads and Bodhrans

Bobby relocated to Sarasota from New York in December of 2004 and opened The Irish Rover Pub in late 2005.  While performing there a couple of nights a week, he met Michial Hickmott and Dan Cartlidge.  Both of whom are big fans of Irish pub songs and bodhrán playing.  Soon after,  they joined Bobby on stage and Ballads & Bodhráns was formed.  It didn’t take long before they attracted many of the locals, some even bringing their own drums and joining in the fun…. 
Since the closing of The Rover, Bobby and Michial continue to play regularly at many venues, pubs and functions around Florida.  They currently perform at festivals around the Suncoast including, the Lakewood Ranch Celtic-Irish Festival, the Sarasota Highland Games and the Sarasota Celtic Music Festival (Celtoberfest), where Bobby will also be MC on October 21, 2017.
