Switchback, Dailey & Vincent to Perform at Peg Egan PAC


Switchback takes the stage at the Peg Egan Performing Arts Center in Egg Harbor on July 26 at 7 pm.

For more than two decades, Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack, known as Switchback, have entertained crowds with their unique American roots/Celtic soul blend of music. FitzGerald and McCormack play an exciting mix of mandolin, guitar and bass. Their harmonies have won them comparisons to famous duos such as the Louvin Brothers, the Everly Brothers, and Simon and Garfunkel.

Switchback’s American roots bring together the soaring pedal steel of Lloyd Maines (father of Natalie Maines of Dixie Chicks fame) along with the boxcar-hopping harmonica of Chicago’s own Howard Levy, creating a musical journey that will make every Midwesterner proud of the heartland and every non-Midwesterner longing for it.

Following the release of their #1 Billboard Bluegrass charting album Dailey & Vincent – Alive! In Concert, the “Rockstars of Bluegrass,” Dailey and Vincent, will bring their critically acclaimed signature sound to the Peg Egan PAC on Aug. 2.
