Drunken Sailor-Winterbloom String Band

This was the Winterbloom String Band at a St. Patrick's Day party in 1986. On this particular night, the group consisted of Bruce O'Brien on lead vocals and banjo, Tom McCausland on guitar, T (Moose)Nyhus on mandolin, and myself, Larry Capra, on hammer dulcimer.

At that time, they were one of the first groups to introduce Celtic music to northern Wisconsin. What they, may or may not have lacked in virtuosity, they made up for it with enthusiasm and fun.

This posting was a response to requests made by old fans. Hope this isn't a disappointing flash back... thanks folks.
