The Fagans are one of Australia’s pre-eminent folk music families, known for their spine-tingling harmonies and musical versatility.

Folk revivalists Margaret and Bob Fagan are joined by their son, ace bouzouki player James Fagan and his partner Nancy Kerr, fiddle player extraordinaire, as well as their daughter Kate Fagan, acclaimed folk-roots songwriter.

The Fagans

The Fagans are an internationally-based band. Margaret, Bob and Kate live in Sydney, Australia, while James and Nancy live in the UK where they perform as a duo and with concertina player Robert Harbron.

James and Nancy have netted two prestigious BBC2 Folk awards including Best Duo. Kate’s debut album Diamond Wheel won Australia’s National Film & Sound Archive award for ‘Best Folk Album’.
