Clover’s Revenge is a dangerous intersection of two Irish musical traditions: Acoustic pub music & Celtic punk rock.
Together since 2015, the trio has performed at festivals and pubs throughout the southeast and also toured Ireland, Scotland, and England. Currently working on their highly anticipated CD, Among Your Friends, the band boasts over 700,000 streams on Spotify featuring music from their first two projects, Gotta Get O’Raggednized and Truants And Absolution.
Beau Wilberding, Cajon Drum – Beau Wilberding is a Sarasota resident of twenty years, a friend to many, and a foe to none. With no background whatsoever in Irish music, Beau was delighted to accompany John and Zach, and to witness the ways, means, ins and outs of Irish storytelling in musical form. Beau’s joy in playing is apparent to all comers – the man can’t seem to stop smiling as he plays the cajon.
Zach Johnson, Guitar, Vocals – Zach Johnson, known to his many students as ‘Dr. J,’ has family roots in the Old Country. Extraordinarily well educated, Zach is a life-long musician and holds a PhD in classical guitar performance. But don’t let that fool you – he plays Irish Speed Folk, sings and quaffs whiskey with great relish.
John Barron, Vocals, Mandolin, Guitar – John Barron is a son of Chicago and attended University in the Dublin suburb of Boston, Massachusetts. He is from a large Irish-American family, and treasures his Irish heritage. A veteran of the stage, his wit and wisdom pierce even the pint-heaviest evenings. But, beware, if he sees you frowning, he’ll stop the music and ask you why.
Clover’s Revenge is available for festivals, pubs, fights, and wakes in the southeast and beyond!
