Formed in 2022, Miscellany Of Folk is a captivating touring act that brings together three talented musicians hailing from Ireland and Newfoundland. Each member of the band brings a wealth of diverse music and life experiences to the concert stage. With impressive accomplishments in both touring and studio recording, they are consummate professional music makers. With decades of experience performing around the world, their music traverses the Atlantic Ocean, spanning from the Emerald Isle to North America.

At the core of Miscellany Of Folk are three exceptional musicians. Celebrated multi-instrumentalist Billy Sutton, hailing from Harbour Grace in Newfoundland, joins forces with accordion maestro Benny McCarthy from Co.Waterford in Ireland, known for his work with Danú. Rounding out the trio is Eddie Costello, a singing powerhouse and guitarist from the historic county of Tipperary in Ireland. United by their deep love for music and their shared passion for creating new arrangements and sounds, they collectively bring a fresh perspective to the folk genre.

The band’s music possesses a rustic and earthy feel, evoking both heartfelt and beautiful sentiments. Their intimate and engaging style draws listeners in, creating a captivating experience. Individually, Billy, Benny, and Eddie have recently released highly regarded solo albums, each showcasing their unique styles and traditions. However, when their talents merge, the sum becomes greater than its parts, resulting in the captivating and harmonious ensemble known as Miscellany Of Folk.
