Switchback had to cancle this preformance to health issues. Sally Weisenburg & Don Berbaum will be preforming instead.
Switchback is the award-winning duo of Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack. Playing an exciting mix of mandolin, guitar, and bass, their harmonies have won them comparisons to famous duos, such as the Louvin Brothers, Everly Brothers, & Simon and Garfunkel.
Switchback tours throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Italy, and the Netherlands . Music Connection Magazine said: “The words ‘American Roots & Celtic Soul’ only begin to describe this unusual act, whose vocal prowess is as pure as it is unique. There is no denying the stunning vocal blends that are achieved by this duo.” Their Celtic music is authentically Irish, drawing praise from such traditional players as Matt Molloy of the group the Chieftains.
