The Mulligan Brothers return to Chautauqua Community House with a new sister and new music.
From Mobile AL, the Mulligan Brothers have spent the last three years touring throughout the US and Europe, playing their brand of American folk rock.
The songwriting and warm, honest, straight-to-the-heart voice of lead singer of Ross Newell draws listeners into the group’s signature sound, where the harmonies of Greg DeLuca, Ben Leininger and Melody Duncan make the songs soar or haunt from the shadows. De Luca plays drums and Leininger is on the bass. Fiddler Melody Duncan joined the band last year, bringing a female voice and perspective.
The Mulligan Brothers have released three albums, “The Mulligan Brothers,” “Via Portland” (recorded in Portland with Grammy-winning producer Steve Berlin) and “ Live from The Netherlands” (April 2017)—recorded during a recent tour that included shows at the famed Paradiso in Amsterdam and a spot on The Ramblin’ Roots Festival in Utrecht. They currently have over four million plays on Spotify, including over 1.85 million of the song Lay Here.
The band kicked off 2017 with a return to the prestigious 30A Songwriter Festival in Florida, an appearance on Music City Roots Nashville, and return to Ireland for January-February tour dates followed by a spot on Cayamo 2017 – A Journey Through Song, a seven day Roots Music Cruise in the company of such artists as Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and Steve Earle. This was followed by a third appearance at New Orleans Jazz Fest and a three week Scandinavian tour. They are currently touring the U.S. in support of the live album, they will be in the studio later this year to start work on their fourth album.
