"Sing, Laugh, Cry, Shout, Repeat. Come hear pianist Eamonn Flynn and guitarist Shay Black sing Dublin Street Songs, Traditional Ballads, Reels and Jigs, Irish Soul and who-knows-what with these two multi-talented songsters from Ireland. With each show interspersed with stories, jokes, and humorous anecdotes, they invariably have audiences smiling broadly & joining in on the choruses."
Eamonn Flynn was born into a musical family in Dublin, Ireland. He first came to prominence playing Hammond organ and piano on the 14 million selling movie soundtrack 'The Commitments' about a soul band from Dublin and has gone on to play with Michael Franti, Evelyn 'Champagne' King, Elvin Bishop, Coco Montoya, Michelle Shocked and Zigaboo Modeliste. In 2017 he released an acclaimed album of his original songs called 'The Irish Channel' and many of these songs are featured in the 'Dublin Saunter' show.
A member of Ireland's foremost family of song, The Black Family, Shay Black regularly tours in the United States and Canada and performs with brother Michael as the Black Brothers, and also with sisters Mary and Frances as the Black Family. With a background steeped in traditional and folk music, he has a huge song collection and has taught repertoire building at many music camps and festivals as well as a long-running song class at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley.
