It’s Celtic music, the traditional and the twisted.

How do you describe Doug Folkins? A little bit of Great Big Sea mixed in with a little bit of Blue Rodeo. He's energetic, playful, fun...and that's only the beginning. Folkins can go from traditional Maritime reels, to driving sing along tunes, to songs with emoiton and poise. He's simply...amazing.

"Flenderson's Revenge" by Ryan M. Barnes

Ryan M. Barnes' specialty is Irish/Canadian folk, as well as moody piano. What he does well is mesh the two of them to create his sound. His music is perfectly at home in a storm-covered night, drinking ale and contemplating life's irony while the cat on your lap blanket becomes drenched with tears.

It's all about emotions. And no one does it better than Ryan M. Barnes.

"Rocky Road to Dublin" by aBuck63

aBuck63 is a traditional Irish folk duet consisting of Matt and Heather Murphy, a husband and wife duo. Their sound is built largely on Heather's tin whistle. In fact, their music takes listeners on a journey through the Celtic landscape, as well as introducing the pioneer spirit of their forefathers who actually settled the valley they call home.

Influenced by bluegrass and country western artists, their songs often take on a more progressive "pub style" with the pounding tempos, as well as reels, jigs, and haunting harmonies.

Give them a listen!

"Tony" by Heidi Jane

Heidi Jane has been referred to as "Susan Vega and Peter Gabriel set sea on a sea of fiddles." Nothing could be further from the truth for this independent musician living in San Francisco.

The violin is her principle instrument and she enjoys creating music that is not solely driven by the typical electric guitar foundation which sets the tone of most rock music. Nor does she take the solo acoustic approach of many folk bands. By placing violin at the forefront, she is creating a sound all her own that is a rich blend of the beautiful string instruments.

Her playing is a unique hibrid of fiddle-playing, which infuses lilting Irish accents with African and Latin Rhythms, all melting with the warm classical tone of the violin.

Simply put...she is simply amazing!

"The Sign of the Cross" by Kevin Flynn & The Avondale Ramblers

Traditional Irish music was their main influence, yet the songs and music of Kevin Flynn and the Avondale Ramblers are anything but traditional. In fact, the key to their unique sound is taking traditional Celtic/Gaelic music and expanding on it, finding their own sound...and presenting it in a new and interesting way. This Chicago-based band also does something different when it comes to their tunes. Lyrically, these Irish-inspired songs are about Chicago, not Ireland, but hold fast to the themes of the working-class, religious, drunken, sometimes violent (yet always somewhat beautiful) aspects of their city.

What you see is what you get. What you get is a lot of talent and a lot of flavor when you listen to Kevin Flynn & The Avondale Ramblers.

"Excursion Around the Bay" by The Kreellers

The Kreellers are from Detroit. No...seriously! In fact, they get a lot of second-glances after people find out that's their hometown. Especially since their sound is described as a "blend of happiness, sadness, pissed off Irishmen, 2 kegs of Guinness, nitroglycerin, and buffalo wings. Shake 'em all together in a titanium bar shaker and serve with a glass of ice water and three Tylenol for the hangover."

The band was formed over 10 years ago by brothers Derek Wade and Paul Bruno. Their music is a blend of traditional Irish and original tunes...described as something akin to a runaway 1969 GTO fueled by nitrous and Guinness!

Pretty damn cool!

Between sets, they can be found sharing a few pints with everyone, having a blast, and even having a few impromptu a-cappella sessions long after the pubs lights shut off. Every band worth its salt does it for the fans. Not every band recognizes that the blend of self love with fan love creates a symbiotic relationship that transcends any barriers – no matter what the genre. This is the heart of The Kreellers. This is only the beginning.

Strap in, hang on, and scream loud.

"The River Pirate" by Brigands' Folie

Brigands' Folie, a duo based out of Minnesota, are known for playing traditional Irish, Scottish and English music, as well as for their edgy original works that are performed in the 18th Century style.

In fact, the duo have made it a personal goal to educate the public about the lives and stories of the 18th Century settlers, pioneers, soldiers and sailors through music of the period.

The ensemble features vocals, guitar, handcrafted bodhran and mandolin. Often their music is accompanied by penny whistle, fiddle, bass and bouzouki. The group has also been known to perform in period-appropriate attire during reenactments and Living History Encampments. This band brings the music of the 18th Century into the 21st Century...and it's done brilliantly.
