The Paperboys (CANADA)

Raheen House Hotel
The Paperboys music defies classification. It is Mexican Son Jarocho mixed in with Irish Jigs and Reels and a good dose of Country and Bluegrass. It is definitely FOLK music, and it has a deep respect and appreciation for tradition (Bluegrass, Old Time, Celtic) but it’s by no means Traditional. It is World Roots Music. One of the best multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-generational, multi-lingual, multi-instrumental, genre bending band you will hear today!!
