The Dubliners

The Dubliners started off in O'Donoghue's pub in Dublin, Ireland in 1962 under the name of "the Ronnie Drew Folk Group". Then they were four, Ronnie Drew (vocals and guitar), Luke Kelly (vocals and 5-string banjo), Barney McKenna (tenor banjo, mandolin, melodeon and vocals) and Ciarán Bourke (vocals, guitar, tin whistle and harmonica). In 1963, they played at the Edinburgh festival where they met the head of Transatlantic Records, Nathan Joseph, for whom they started recording.

Maxim

There are at least two artists called Maxim: 1) Keith Palmer (born 21 March 1967), best known as Maxim or Maxim Reality, is an MC of the British electronica/rave band The Prodigy. He is known for his fierce style of appearance in both music videos and live shows, often wearing scary contact lenses and kilts. His fierce style is also vibrant in the lyrical sense; in live shows he is known to scream and shout to hype up the audience.

The Lash

The Lash from Lansing, Michigan combines folk instruments like fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and even pedal steel guitar, with bass and drums, and the result is like little else found on the music scene. Although their sound is still rooted in Celtic music, they're never afraid to head into new territory. Recent recordings have been described as Americana or Alt-Country, and some of the newest songs by The Lash could be called World Beat.
