Many have called Pugwash one of Ireland's best kept secrets. But thankfully the guys in the band don't want it to stay that way.

They've been making in-roads to the United States for a couple years now. And Portland and 207 are a big part of that.

They're back in town for a show Monday night at Empire in Portland. They normally play electric but with the help of Buckdancer's Choice they were able to procure some acoustic instruments for performing in the 207 studio.
