Two brothers, one mind and a single beating heart made of rock n roll gold. Since forming in 2013, the Rounders have performed over 400 live shows across Ireland and the UK.  Whether playing a Stephen Foster song from the 1980’s or a brand new self penned classic you can’t take your eyes, or ears off these lads! Love ’em, hate ’em, or both they will not be ignored.
