Mick Foster


Mick Foster is originally from County Kildare, in sight of the Curragh. He now lives in Mullingar, and has a small farm where he spends all his time, when not touring, looking after his horses. He has three daughters, and one son, Jackie.
Mick was taught to play the accordion by a Sr Anges Murray, a nun of the Mercy Order in Ballymahon and Frankie Gavigan. Other influences on his playing included Jimmy Shand and Will Starr. He has recorded a tribute to the latter, entitled The Old Button Box and has claimed that his accordion would probably be the last thing he would be prepared to give up. He is best known as part of the duo, Foster and Allen.
