Three of Chicago's most seasoned Irish traditional musicians came together in 2005 to form the Boils, a high-energy trio delivering a potent blend of jigs and reels, as well as songs. Featuring Jim Conway on harmonica and tin whistle, Jack Callahan on guitar and vocals, and Mike Austin on bodhran and percussion, the Boils possess a deep respect for traditional style but also infuse that tradition with their own interpretation of the music, reflecting their Irish-American heritage. Before coming together as the Boils, Conway, Callahan, and Austin performed and recorded with some of the world’s top Irish musicians in venues spanning the United States and Europe.
