Traditional Irish Folk and Rebel Music
The LeftOvers established a following in Buffalo and throughout Western New York in 2001. With music ranging from popular drinking songs to the historical and poignant rebel songs of Irish past, the LeftOvers offer a large variety of tunes and ballads. Their live shows are rowdy and lots of fun! The band was founded by Jerry Shea and Pat Gerken, on the premise that good music will always bring people together. The LeftOvers are Jerry Shea: Guitars, vocals, bad jokes, Pat Gerken: Guitar, vocals, really bad jokes; Elizabeth Shea: Vocals; Ryan Young: Bagpipes, vocals, kilts, whiskey....really bad combination; Dave Pruski: bass and wild outfits, Greg Kent: bodhran and beer; and the venerable Tim Ellis on mandolin, banjo and blues harp - all of which he claims he learned in a dream while at Woodstock
Thank you all for making this St. Pat's season so wonderful.
