GUEST,Maurice The Matthews Brothers - where are they? (58* d) RE: The Matthews Brothers - where are they? 22 Feb 04


Larry divides his time between Canada and Germany but also has spent a lot of time in recent years in Kerry, Ireland...their mother was from Glenbeigh. Terry lived in Killorglin, Co. Kerry, until a few months ago but has now returned to England...don't know where. They played for some time with a Tralee-based band called Spalpeen, then as a duo for awhile but I think they haven't played together for some years now. Terry used to play regularly in pubs around the Killorglin and Killarney area up to last year (2003). Their music was, as some one said above, straight ahead and no frills, but well performed and good to listen to. When he was on form Terry was an absolutly dazzling banjo player...I first came across him in the '60's when he was still a teenager and even then he was amazing. It would be great to see them get together again...in the meantime I wish them well.
P.S...as far as I remember they spell it "Mathews"...might be wrong, though.
