2019 Band Line Up

Young Dubliners

The Young Dubliners are quite possibly Celtic rock’s hardest working band, playing hundreds of shows to thousands of fans across the US and Europe every year. In recent years they have twice appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live  Good Morning America,  had songs featured in TV shows (Sons Of Anarchy, Human Target) and toured extensively as a headliner and as the opener for such a diverse list of artists as Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang, Los Lobos and many more.

Craic in the Stone

Formed in 2013, Craic in the Stone is earning a reputation for an invigorating, eclectic Celtic sound that spans gorgeous storytelling and tightly woven harmonies, pub songs and traditional tunes, originals and fresh covers, as well as instrumental jigs and reels. They are named after the quintessential Irish expression "craic," which is pronounced "crack," for fun times.

The Ploughboys

We specialize in a unique mix of Irish & Celtic music, folk, bluegrass, pirate songs, songs about roving, drinking, fighting, lovemaking, drinking and fighting at the same time, lovemaking and drinking at the same time ... did we mention roving?

The Fenians

For over twenty five years, The Fenians have delivered their potent mix of traditional Irish folk and good old rock n roll all across the USA and Ireland. With an ever expanding set of original creations, as well as contemporary and traditional tunes plucked from the panoply of the genre, these five lads put on a live show that is second to none. Their foundation is decidedly Celtic, but there is no mistaking the complimentary influences of Rock, Folk, Bluegrass, Jazz, and World music.  

Sligo Rags

Named among the top acoustic bands in LA (by Folkworks Magazine) and two-time winners of the Orange County Music Award for Best Folk Band, this dynamic ensemble presents Celtic Folk with a decidedly bluegrass attitude. Sligo Rags is taking the local and not-so-local Folk and Celtic music scenes by storm with a unique blend of eclectic musical influences.

Mary's Lane

Marys Lane is a place...

way back in the old country, not owned by Mary, at least not any more. The band Marys Lane is rock, and reel, but most of all, the good times roll. Their Cleveland Rock roots are evident, but they are knee deep in the ghosts of Ireland – not maudlin mind you, but in the typical Kitchen Party made so famous by the Irish – everyone comes, everyone joins in, one way or another, and everyone leaves wishing the night would never end.
