From Dublin The Harvest Ministers were formed in 1987 by William Merriman (guitar) and David Duffy (vocals, harmonica). They later recruited Padraig McCaul (guitar, piano, saxaphone) and Gerardette Bailey (vocals). Aingeala de Burca (violin) ex In Tua Nua, Brian Foley (bass) ex Vipers, Blades, Mountain Climbers and Pat Dillon (drums) were soon added to the lineup. William took over on vocal duties and albums ensued.The band is still very much active and are currently working on a new album. Check out this 2014 interview by Niall Crumlish on state.ie.
