The Irish Wakers celebrate the songs and dance music of Ireland, with nods to the Canadian Maritimes and to seafarers everywhere.



Our line-up includes vocals, fiddle, Irish flute, mandolin, guitar, and bodhran. We'll gladly play at weddings, parties, pubs, restaurants, coffeehouses, festivals, or conventions, and, of course, wakes!

What people say about The Irish Wakers:

The Irish Wakers played to a sold-out audience for the White Rock Irish Club. Members were entertained with a brilliant selection of traditional Irish music. There was great energy in the room and the music was enjoyed and appreciated by all.
                 Deirdre O'Ruairc, White Rock Irish Club President 

I really enjoyed your music at the Feed the Hungry event.  It was the first time that I heard the Irish Wakers and I must say that I was very impressed.
                               —Catholine Butler, The Celtic Connection
