On the Banks of the Hocking River
The Boys of the Hock' are sure to please with their instrumental interpretations of Irish traditional music. Equally at home on stage or at the head of a dance floor, the Boys are always ready with a tune or three. In addition to formal concerts, the Boys perform for Ceili (KAY-lee) and Contra dances. These participatory events provide great fun and exercise for dancers of all skills and ages. Under the able prompting of the Boys' drummer and dance caller Tim Hogan, even complete novices quickly learn the simple steps needed to enjoy Irish Ceili dancing. For Contra dances, the Boys lively tune sets lend a Celtic flavor to any caller's event.
