The Punters (Larry Foley and Patrick Moran) are key figures in the exciting music scene in Atlantic Canada. Drawing upon their rich musical heritage, The Punters combine rock, folk, and traditional music, creating a sound that is truly their own.
Music has been the driving force in the lives of each of the Newfoundland-born Punters. Larry’s singing, writing, and performing careers all began in 1989 when he embraced traditional music while at St. F.X.U. and later when studying in Ireland. Patrick has been playing fiddle since the age of six and can also play a mean guitar, though not at the same time.
The Punters are highly energetic and entertaining musicians who have performed thousands of shows; from festivals, to theatres, to clubs, to Microsoft's first live webcast on the Internet. The band has toured extensively throughout Canada, as well as performing numerous shows in the U.S., namely in New York and Boston.
