About this Event

Benny McCarthy (Button Accordion), Pat Ryan (Fiddle and Banjo), and John Nugent (Guitar) with guests joining them onstage at the White Memorial Theatre to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album. Playing together since 1992, Rattle The Boards have been praised as one of the liveliest traditional acts in Ireland's music scene. Pat, John and Benny were all members of the Knocknagow Ceili Band who were based in Clonmel, Co.Tipperary. Benny is also leader of the International super group "Danú" and has toured all over the world.

In 1999 Rattle The Boards released their debut album to much acclaim. They have performed concert tours in Ireland, Europe, USA and Canada over the 20 years and in recent years performed on the Mediterranean for Disney cruise lines. In 2002 Rattle The Boards provided the musical inspiration for the hit Irish theatre show called Teac A Bloc by visual artist Des Dillon. Rattle The Boards arranged and performed with Teac A Bloc to sold-out venues throughout Ireland and also performed two sketches from the show on Ireland's premier TV show "The Late Late Show” in December 2003. This is only one of many TV appearances by Rattle The Boards.

In March 2008 Rattle The Boards released their long awaited second album "The Parish Platform" nearly a decade after the debut release.Their sense of fun and lift in the music of Rattle The Boards makes them unique among their contemporaries. As their name suggests this is a group that will have its audience on their feet and rattling the floorboards.
