playing music around the open heart fire at a traditional session of
singing and storytelling in my home house long ago, the local priest
suggested a band name and so i thought it appropriate to call ourselves
this name “The Back Axles” , as the music of old Ireland plays a big
part in our music and song writing today. The band members come from all
parts of Ireland bringing with them their own style of music which
forms the unique sound of The Back Axles. Hope to meet you all along the
