Fraoch, a crowd favorite Irish Celtic band, returned on July 28 to the Classic Bean’s Fairlawn location to perform. 

Fraoch has visited the coffee shop before, performing traditional Irish songs like “Drowsy Maggie” and “Cooley’s Reel.”

The six man ensemble is a traditional Irish band that plays a variety of music, from pub songs to ballads. Fraoch was officially formed in the spring of 2012, but the band had played together many times prior to that as friends for pure enjoyment. They got their start as back-up musicians for Irish dancers at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival.
