The Big Fun Trio has been playing dances around the Midwest since 2012, ranging from Toronto to Columbus and many points in between.

The trio is composed of Marty Somberg, one of the best Irish fiddlers around who has hosted the Sunday night Irish music session at Conor O’Neill’s pub in Ann Arbor for 17 years; Brad Battey, one of the region’s most sought-after contra fiddlers; and Myron Grant, on guitar, harmonica, vocals and leader of this and many other bands.

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, the trio will play a free concert at Michigan Medicine featuring Irish and New England contra tunes, Old Time, swing and Texas swing, as well as some original tunes.
