The SON’s (Sons of Ned) began as a spirit nearly 35 years ago with the connection via music between Michael and James. Their friendship revolved a good bit around music of all kinds. Today the duo of music fanatics is now a growing band with special guests along the way with the addition of Jake, Michael’s son, Emilie-Rose (aka Lady McBeath) as well as Matthew our piano man.
The band specializes in Americana rock, Canadian rock and modern celtic music with a little folk thrown in there for good measure.
