Bug Guts

Bug Guts

rosebud and Scott Ireland met in San Diego while playing in their respective punk bands, Night Soil Man and The Pulltoys.  At some point, they wound up jamming together on acoustic guitars and a magical connection was made.  After a serious accident left Scott temporarily paralyzed, their bands broke up.  What followed was a long, but successful recovery for Scott... after which they picked up their guitars again and decided to go at it as a duo. After numerous incarnations, from Raw Croon, Leather Muffin, and the Swamp Poets, to Blue Sky Pie, they now are flying high as Bug Guts.

Their rich harmonies, intricate guitar work, lyrical acrobatics, and playful sense of humor, have been delighting audiences around the world.   Though a challenge to pigeonhole, their music has been described as "Free-Range Post-Cynical Misfit Folk".  

They've shared the stage with such greats as Shawn Colvin, Gillian Welch, Jason Mraz, and Jewel, and at a combined height of over twelve and half feet, Bug Guts is the tallest folk duo in the known world.
