The Flanagan Brothers was an Irish music duo in New York composed of brothers Mike on banjo and Joe on diatonic accordion, who recorded extensively in the 1920s and 1930s, and performed in America's Irish dance halls. At times the band also included a third brother, Louis, on guitar or sometimes harp guitar.
Mike was born in Philadelphia in 1894 and the family subsequently returned to Ireland. Louis was born in 1896 and Mike in 1897, both in Waterford. The whole family emigrated to America in 1911 and settled in Albany in New York State.
