History

The McPeake Family of Belfast were one of the few Irish pre-ballad boom groups. The group was built up around the grandfather, Francis I, who had studied pipes under the blind Galway piper John Reilly. The family group, composed of Francis, his sons Francis II and James, and grandchildren Kathleen, Francis III and Tom McCrudden, and featured vocals, two uilleann pipes, two harps, banjo, guitar and tin whistle. Their most famous song, "Will Ye Go, Lassie Go", written by Francis Senior. The group ceased to play for some time after the death of Francis I in 1971.
