Fool's Errand is the result of a few too many bad ideas, and a few too little cares. We love doing what we do, and music is what we do. Both of us were in a band together previously, Pogue Mahone, of which we were both founding members. The music of Fool's Errand is the result of our collective musical experience since that time, and the broadening of our influence pool. For those of you who may remember Pogue Mahone, and are looking forward to more of the same with Fool's Errand, you will be sorely disappointed. Things have changed, we think for the better. Fool's Errand still retains some of the Irish Traditional influence that both Josh and I have been previously known for (with Pogue Mahone, and for Josh, with Buckled Gurrier), but this time those elements are intertwined with American and Bluegrass roots, Rock and Roll, new and old, as well as Reggae, and even a little bit of country (Note: Johnny Cash). Things have mellowed out a bit, but grown stronger and more meaningful. You are more likely to find original songs in our lineup these days, and very few covers. Fool's Errand is our music, pure and simple, and it comes from the heart.
