The Brothers Quinn is a four piece folk ensemble from southeastern Wisconsin fronted by WAMI award winning fiddle player Blaine McQuinn. The Brothers Quinn perform a variety of music including Irish, bluegrass, classic country, and blues; however, it’s not unusual to hear some Beatles or even Radiohead. Blaine is joined on stage by his brother Timothy McQuinn on drums, washboard, and vocals, Peyton Lencho on upright bass and Brian “Looper” Lucas on harmonica, guitar and vocals. Together, these boys bring a unique energy to familiar songs and even a few unfamiliar tunes. The Brothers Quinn have been winning over audiences for the past 2 years with their unique blend of music!
Blaine and Timothy, formerly of the Celtic-Punk band Whiskey of the Damned, have played a variety of venues including Summerfest’s Harley Davidson Stage opening for Dropkick Murphys, Irish Fest’s Celtic Rock Stage, and The Oshkosh Irish Fest. Blaine was the recipient of a Wisconsin Area Music Award for 2013 String Player of the Year.
