The Simpson Three are a trio of siblings who perform predominantly Irish music, with a few interesting flavours! They are highly talented multi-instrumentalists who perform tight and refined arrangements of traditional and contemporary tunes and songs. Their parents, Ray and Jenni Simpson are long-time members of Blackberry Jam Bush Band Their show will have you laughing along at hilariously terrible sibling rivalry one second, and then will have your toes tapping along to crankin’ tunes the next!
