Scuffletown Trio


From Virginia to Nashville to Ireland, Scuffletown members Marc Carraway (guitar, slide guitar and vocals) and John Whitlow (harmonica, flute and accordion) have been entertaining audiences for the past 25 years. Well- known for their range of musical approaches, Scuffletown shows include traditional and original music which cuts across jazz, blues, bluegrass, Americana and world music lines, all with a special Scuffletown twist.


The popular duo will be joined by local Virginian and long-time Scuffletown partner, Matty Metcalfe, whose credentials as an artist have led to national and international tours and stages such as The Grand Old Opry, the Irish Embassy in Washington DC and The Kennedy Center.  


Scuffletown is honoured to perform at Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy and they will have released an EP by then which will feature ‘When the Sun Shines in Galway’, a tribute to the magic and wonder they discovered during their previous tour of Ireland.

The Scuffletown Trio are scheduled for two performances at the school. On the afternoon of Monday the 8th of July, from 2.30pm until 4pm, they will present a talk/workshop entitled  ‘Irish Roots to Appalachian branches’, exploring the cultural connections between Irish traditional music and its Appalachian off-shoots, and on the afternoon of Tuesday the 9th they will perform in the international concert held from 5pm to 7pm - both events take place at the Mill Marquee.
