The Horse’s Mouth is from Humboldt, SK. The band got their start in Feb. 1998 and their mutual love of music has kept them together for over 20 yrs. Lead singer, Andy McAnally, hails from Northern Ireland and it has been his love for the music of Northern Ireland that steered the band’s direction. Andy plays guitar, bouzouki, mandolin and bodhran. Sharing lead vocals is Bob Henderson who plays guitar, bodhran and penny whistles. Margaret Henderson plays penny whistles, accordion and does back up vocals. Dave Martinuk plays violin, viola, bodhran and does vocals. The band plays Celtic/Irish Traditional and Canadian East Coast music and their compositions encompass genres such as blues and light rock, or as they call it, Celtic Eclectic.
The Horse's Mouth have played at many different venues including Kinsmen Telemiracle, Regina Celtic Winter Festival, Flatland Music Festival, several benefits in the Humboldt area, Saskatoon Jazz Festival, Irish Pavilion at Saskatoon Folk Festival, CBC Afternoon Edition, plus pubs, halls and parks throughout SK and Manitoba.
The Horse’s Mouth released their first cd “Straight From” in 2001 and are happy to announce their second cd “Horsin’ Around” featuring 16 songs, 9 that are their own compositions, released Nov., 2019. Unfortunately Covid-19 has put a hold on concerts and touring for 2020 but they are hoping to stay well, get their music out via radio and the internet and get back to playing live when provincial guidelines permit. Music is available on Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, Google, You Tube, Tic Toc and Amazon.
