Ahead of Thursday’s Drive I caught up with Andrew & Charles, founding members of Irish folk band The Mary Wallopers. We covered all sorts from their debut self-titled album to their UK Tour and what it’s been like bringing their Irish folk songs to England, Scotland and Wales. We also talked about their fantastic meditation retreats, what they’ve had thrown at them, that infamous photo you’ll see in their local pub (and in their album sleeve!) plus, of course, their latest single Cod Liver & The Orange Juice.
