"Curraugh" (pronounced Cur Raw), is the name of an ancient Irish leather boat and even though the band "Curraugh" isn't quite ancient yet, they do play Irish music and have been known to wear leather jackets and vests on occasions.

"Curraugh" plays a mix of English, Irish, Scottish and Canadian Maritime music guaranteed to have you singing along and dancing in the aisles.
