Billy Treacy is a Folk singer/songwriter from Dublin's Inner City. A modern day Balladeer with contemporary story songs using traditional instruments it neatly welds the past with the present.
Billy Treacy & The Scope have a contemporary approach using traditional instruments to create an overall folk and roots vibe with influences stemming from The Pogues and The Dubliners as well as legends like Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. The style is mixture of both folk and traditional and remains respectful to the past while belting them into the present with a down and dirty punk edge rather than an over-produced polished approach.
The Scope are a group of musicians, some of whom regularly play with Billy while others are more transient and join in depending on the scale of the performance.
They consist of
Billy Treacy: Guitar & Vocals
Anna Mary Donaghy: Fiddle
Conor Brady: Bass
Gavin Whelan: Uilleann Pipes & Whistle
Jonathan Foley: Percussion & Backing Vocals
Paddy Kiernan: 5 String Banjo

Great Irish Pub in town I wanted to experience authentic Irish food and atmosphere in a pub. Lunchtime at the Stags Head was lovely. The food and service was fantastic. Would recommend to all visitors.
Great place! Probably our favorite pub in Dublin, and we went to a few. Went there for lunch and a few pints. Food was absolutely amazing and the staff couldn’t have been better. We loved this place. Highly recommend!
