It's obvious when you listen to Scorpion Jack that there is a traditional irish music influence. Look no further than Rohan Young, Bodhran maestro, his style and skill are world renowned and his debut solo album, released on 4th July 2017 through Groove Music Records, "Can't beat it with a big stick", is available to stream and download at all digital retailers.
