Bursting out of the darkened backroom parlors of Wexford Town's pubs social clubs in 2012, Corner Boy emerged - an enraptured clatter. This is contemporary folk fused with traditional Irish instruments sound-bedding in their words; a haunting, beautiful time.


Corner Boy has toured extensively in Ireland, UK, Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East, with their music receiving widespread national/international radio and television acclaim. All 4 of their early singles (Ghost Town City, True North, Morning Morning, and Untie the Noose) reached #1 in the Irish iTunes folk charts with their single, Morning Morning, also charting at #1 in the Dutch world music iTunes charts.

"Produced by Grammy Award winning Dropkick Murphy's knob-twiddler, Ted Hutt, examining where they stand in a transitioning Ireland, these Wexford natives have taken things up a nothch with their righteous new single.  The stirring song uses handclaps, haunting harmonies and some gravelly goosebumps inducing vocals from Mick D'Arcy to powerful effect."

-Hot Press Magazine, June 2018

"There are times when you first hear a band that you know they are destined for success. Corner Boy is one of those bands. Their sound is powerful, raw, and captivating. Everyone should see and hear this band." 

- Keli O'Neill Wenzel, Executive Director, Kansas City Irish Fest, October, 2020
