The force behind the FOS Brothers has always been Dave and Sam McCrory. Brought up in Belfast during the height of the troubles their sensibilities derive from hard schooling on the streets and strict Northern Irish evangelical church attendance, sometimes 6 days a week.
They are a right bunch of characters, all weird in their own way but managing to merge into a wall of sound when let loose on stage.
Hard to buttonhole their appeal sometimes as they move seamlessly from tear jerking Irish ballads to full on floydian space rock – they are equally happy with a pin drop silence Arts Centre or a packed Festival Marquee. They adapt their set to suit the audience always aiming to have a shared experience and an uplifting evening.
