The Voice Squad, Phil Callery, Gerry Cullen and Fran Mc Phail are a group of traditional acapella close harmony singers from Ireland. They first sang together in 1985 at an annual Christmas Carol evening in Dublin and enjoyed the experience so much the The Voice Aquad was formed. Their unique sound comes from the mix of the two tenor voices of Fran and Phil, with the underlying bass of Gerry who also creates the harmony structure for each song. There is a careful respect between the three voices and a uniformed focus on the songs and the intention always is to sing as one voice.
These three Irishmen have carefully brought a unique harmony sound to a tradition which is known worldwide for its solo unaccompanied singing. Accolades include an EMA award from the BBC in Belfast as the best traditional act in 1991. Most recently in October 2015 while in 1992 they recorded The Parting Glass in the celebrated BBC television programme Bringing it All Back Home. Key performances include the opening of the Special Olympics in Dublin in 2003 and The National Concert Hall in October 2015 which was attended by our president, His Excellency Mr Michael D Higgins.
They also featured on RTE Television flagship broadcast of Christmas Carols from Kilkenny Castle.
