Switchback is the award-winning duo of Brian FitzGerald and
Martin McCormack. Switchback draws on traditional Celtic music and
original Americana songs that reflect their Irish heritage and
Midwestern roots. Playing an exciting mix of mandolin, guitar, and
bass, their harmonies have won them comparisons to famous duos,
such as the Louvin Brothers, Everly Brothers, & Simon and
Lee Murdock has uncovered a boundless body of music and stories
in the Great Lakes. Taking snapshots from history, his songs
summon the listener to take a front-row seat, to look through the
eyes and into the hearts of individuals who have shaped our
heritage on and around the Great Lakes. His concerts invoke a
sense of place, but it is a universal place, and a timeless
repertoire that celebrates the North American people, their
triumphs and tragedies, work songs and pastimes.
