Poor Man’s Fortune

From Austin, Texas Poor Man’s Fortune is one of the finest traditional music bands in the US. Traditional without the cobwebs, Poor Man’s Fortune plays modern music with tradition- schottishes and congas, jigs with didgeridoos, gavottes & darbukas, haunting ballads with soaring bombardes. Using bagpipes, flutes, fiddles, pennywhistles, accordions, dulcitares, electric violins and a jazz bass, this band has a profound repertory of reels, hornpipes and jigs from Ireland, Belgian waltzes, Scottish mouth muisc, ridees and gavottes from France, and songs and schottishes from England.
