Started by Bob Phillips, Larry Halverson, and Tim Staudacher, and musically known as the Langford Lads, the trio is an upcoming folk trio. The music of Langford Lads can only be described as sonically stunning, where the intersection of Irish, old-time, and folk music meet.
Featuring guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, tin whistle, flute and vocals they perform a cascade of folk based tunes that will entertain and delight. Based in West-Michigan their years as life-long music educators brings a unique perspective to their music and performance.
Phillips, a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Music, taught orchestra in Saline. Called “the father of fiddling in schools,” he established the Saline Fiddlers in 1994. Phillips has authored more than 25 book series and published 200 pieces of music in the educational market.
Staudacher, a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Music, retired from teaching instrumental music at Mona Shores Public Schools. He nurtures his deep interest in folk music by playing in groups that perform American and Irish music.
Halverson, from Roosevelt Park, is a saxophonist who added the Irish tin whistle and the flute after attending a concert by Kennedy’s Kitchen. Through study with Ireland’s leading performers and instructors, he learned tin whistle techniques while developing his own unique style.
