    I am 13 years old and started reenacting when I was 2 and my grandpa would always play these songs on the way to old Fort Niagara. A couple years ago, I met Joey Hall for the FnI event and I got to sing man O war wit him and I couldn't be happier. A year later for the same event Joey Hall himself gave me his from The vault cd! And he even signed it for me! The next year for the same event was 2017 and I got to sing Whiskey in the Jar with him! The next day he told me to come back and bring my penny whistle so we could play together!! My grandpa said you couldn't wipe the smile off my face for three hours! So the next day I came back and he sang frozen heater for me and I played god save the king and Yankee doodle for him. To this day I am practicing killkelly Ireland on my whistle so the next time I see him I can play it for him! He is my favorite person in the whole world. He is so nice and someday I hope to be as good at music as he is!

    I heard a song they did but can't find it anywhere. The lyrics have "walking on holy ground" in it, anybody know the name and album? Hey Mike. that is a song that made it on the "Back At Ya" CD. The song is called Dark and Bloody Ground. Mike: So sorry for the delay in responding. I just saw this. That is a song that was written by Timmy Hess on our trip to Scotland in '98-'99. It is available for download on the Back At Ya' album. Just visit our Download Music tab on this site. Thanks so much!

    They are one of the best bands around! I enjoy seeing them at both the Dayton Celtic Festival and the Ohio Renaissance Festival. They are one of my personal all time favorites.

    I so look forward to seeing these folks, again and again! They have some of the finest music it has been my privilege to hear.. I'm always relaxed and at home in the atmosphere they create either in the concert hall or encampments... very family oriented, talented, and one of the finest set of musicians I've ever seen!

    I bend over backwards to get FS&F at the Loch Norman Highland Games each year. Over the years I have become friends with Joey and Shawn. They light up my Historical Camp at the games. I would hate to imagine the camp without them. Besides Joey likes my cooking!

    Father Son & Friends was playing at my very first historical reenactment 17 years ago and I've loved them ever since. Joey and Shawn's banter adds a comical element in between beautiful ballads and boisterous Irish tunes. I'm so happy to see FS&S traveling farther distances so more people can be treated to their talent. ... I still see them when I can, and I hope to catch them again soon!

    I've been listening to FS&F since my first trip to Vincennes almost 20 years ago. Been a while since I've seen the guys, but I can guarantee you every show is a LARGE TIME! These guys do every song right, and in a style distinctly their own. Do yourself a good deed and go see them!
