Our first-ever CD,

"No Strangers Here,"

is now available at

all our shows, and

at CD!


         Banish Misfortune is our six-member group from western Massachusetts, and we play traditional music from Ireland. Our instrumentation includes fiddle, concertina, mandolin, flute, bouzouki, whistle, accordion and guitar, with which

we serve up rousing sets of jigs, reels, hornpipes, waltzes, polkas, airs, and the occasional inspired song or accompanied Irish poem!


         We regularly play in concerts and festivals throughout western New England, as well as every Sunday at The Northampton Brewery from 3 to 6 pm! (Beginning April 26, we'll move to 5 to 8 pm for the summer...)


         We are available to bring old world comfort to any social gathering, whether

a wedding ceremony, the cocktail hour of a wedding reception, a birthday or retirement party, or a business event. Please visit us on Facebook, and for rates and bookings please contact us at (413) 586-4997 or
