McPEAKE - born and bred in Belfast and known throughout the world for their music!

The McPeake family has been whispered as ‘folk-royalty’. Their beloved song 'Wild Mountain Thyme / Will Ye Go Lassie Go' has been on the lips of music lovers across the globe. This hauntingly beautiful folk anthem has been covered by music superstars such as Ed Sheeran, Rod Stewart and Bob Dylan, to name a few.

McPEAKE mix heart-pumping instrumentals and heart-stirring lyrics with innovative use of traditional instruments alongside contemporary song writing; creating a new perspective on an old genre.

Francis McPeake I, penned ‘Wild Mountain Thyme;’ Francis McPeake II influenced Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan etc.; Francis McPeake III taught John Lennon the Uilleann Pipes; and now the latest generation have formed McPEAKE who recently appeared in the EMMY award-winning PBS Special, Music of Ireland.
