Poor Man's Gambit is a trio of traditional artists comprised of Corey Purcell (button accordion, cittern, vocals, bodhran, dance), Dylan Richardson (guitar, tenor banjo, bouzouki, vocals), and Genevieve Gillespie (fiddle, vocals, dance). Though Corey, Dylan, and Genevieve were all raised in the U.S., they were brought up on the traditional music of Ireland, and all belong to musical families. Building on their roots as traditional Irish musicians, the trio's repertoire is also influenced by traditional music of other cultures including France, Scotland, England, and America.
The band's roots can be traced to the early '90s when Gillespie and Purcell met in Irish dance class at the age of five. The two pursued separate careers in the Irish arts, until finally reuniting in early 2015 with the addition of Richardson to form 'Poor Man's Gambit'.
