Saturday & Sunday
Calling their genre of music “jig punk“, the Prodigals fall within a tradition epitomized by the Pogues and Black 47, merging traditional Celtic melodic roots with rock rhythms. Led by Gregory Greene, the band has been at the Irish Festival 12 of the 30 years! The Prodigals call Paddy Reilly’s (the world’s only all-draft Guinness bar) their home when in New York City. The band has its own distinctive sound, particularly distinguished by lead melodic roles being filled by button-key accordion and bass along with the vocals, and has received substantial critical notice through the years.
