For nearly 50 years The Flyin' Column has performed the folk music of Ireland, Scotland, and North America at festivals, weddings, and in some of the finest saloons in New York State, Pennsylvania, and Canada.
In all that time band members may have changed, new songs come and sadly a few songs may have gone but the show goes on. We still start with "Come In" and the program ends with "Good Bye Mike, Good Bye Pat". The in-between has always been a mix of waltzes, sing-a-longs, and Irish ballads. With The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, The Kingston Trio, The Rovers and The Corries as mentors The Column has taken the traditional songs of Ireland, Scotland and North America and created a style of their own.
The Flyin' Column continues to perform at the better Saloons and Irish Festivals in New York State.
Whatever your pleasure, Historic Ballads, Love Songs, or Sing Alongs or even a little Rock and Roll The Flyin' Column can fill the bill.
The Flyin' Column is made up of:
Don Meixner on Guitar and 5-String Banjo, vocals.
Jimmy Flynn on bass guitar and vocals.
Jim Sheridan on 6 and 12 string guitar and vocals.
The Late Alan Taylor on Spiritual Guidance.
