Day 313 Gerry Cullen The Voice Squad (Photo A Day)

 

This is Gerry Cullen a member of the singing group The Voice Squad who performed at the 25th anniversary Geordie Hanna traditional singing weekend held in Derrytresk Co Tyrone. Gerry is the bass of The Voice Squad

Though group singing, especially in harmony, is not part of the Irish music tradition, The Voice Squad have a considerable repertoire of Irish traditional songs and have always sung unaccompanied.

They have been compared to English family groups of similar style, such as ‘The Watersons’ and ‘The Copper Family’. ‘It is the union of the distinct tenor voices of Fran and Phil plus the bass of Gerry, along with their own particular arrangements of good songs, that has made them one of the most distinctive unaccompanied singing groups of recent times.’
