The Unwanted are Rick Epping, Cathy Jordan and Seamie O'Dowd. Between them, they encompass a vast range of the music of Ireland, America, and other places geographically and culturally linked to these lands that encircle the Atlantic Ocean. From the rich traditions of both sides of the Atlantic have come the source and inspiration of the music of The Unwanted—three Sligo-based musicians, each with exceptional talent and a lifetime dedication to their music.

Folk music’s legendary triumvirate of musical magpies Mike McGoldrick, John Doyle and John McCusker bring their own blend of top -class folk songs, tunes and charming bonhomie.
