- Award Winning band featuring Sean O'Rourke, Frank McGuire, Jim Divers & Mark Canning
- Me, Myself, and I
- Lyra Celtica, with existing members Mark Canning & Frank McGuire have now been joined by Jim Divers and Sean O’Rourke, 2 original and founding members of the JSD Band.
The JSD Band became Scotland's most successful folk-rock act ever, selling thousands of albums worldwide with EMI Records, touring Britain, Europe and the USA doing concerts, TV and radio with the likes of David Bowie and the Spiders from Mars, and sharing bills with acts such as Status Quo, Sly and the Family Stone, Lindisfarne, Lou Reed, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, and The Average White Band. The late, great John Peel, who wrote the sleeve notes for their 2nd album, was among their many admirers.
The music of the JSD Band fused traditional Irish, Scottish, American and English folk songs with modern rock rhythms and instruments — an important innovation in the development of the celtic music scene and very influential at the time.
Lyra Celtica have been performing traditional music and song for nearly 10 years. Winners of the Anne O’Brien Tribute Stage Award in 2005, remaining members Mark Canning and Frank McGuire continue to add their unique blend of rythym to the band’s sound.
