G.I. Photo by Larkin Werner Guaranteed Irish have been performing Irish ballads and dance music for over 25 years. Their name refers to an Irish marketing effort similar to 'Made in America' and reflects their respect and passion for the music. Paddy Folan, Bruce Foley and Jimmy Lamb combine button accordion, guitars, uilleann pipes, whistles and voices in their own distinctive and energetic way to make a sound that is true to the traditions of Irish music. Whether singing traditional ballads or interpreting modern folk/rock/pop songs, their vocal harmonies are tight and spirited. With an easy, collaborative charm the lads are equally at home in a small session or on stage in a pub, concert hall or festival.

Guaranteed Irish play primarily in Pittsburgh, PA but have toured from Chicago to New York and Boston. They were featured on eight Caribbean cruises and have had three memorable tours of Ireland. In the past they have opened large concerts for such notable acts as Paddy Reilly, Patrick Street and The Irish Rovers.

The group has recorded three very well-received CDs, reissued several times and aired on all the major Pittsburgh radio stations and frequently on Connemara Community Radio in Galway, Ireland. The boys also contributed four cuts to the Andy Stewart tribute CD; It's All In The Song. See more about the CD's on the Recordings page, or CD Baby, or iTunes.
