WEDNESDAY NIGHT 1/15/14 - SOME GOOD CRAIC welcomes Emish to the show. We will also be talking to their manager John Ryan .
New York natives, Emish, have forged their own Americana folk rock sound by colliding a background of Irish, rock, and folk influences. This independent, power-folk band initially found success in a grassroots manner. Supported by their dedicated fan base, Emish has repeatedly been voted the “Best Band of the Hudson Valley” and are the current title holder for 2012. Bobby Curreri has also been named as the”Best Singer/Songwriter” for the past two consectutive years. Since it’s inception in 2005, the group has grown to include support from the national stage as well. Their high energy, live performances and distinct sound have catapulted Emish to be a sought-out headlining act at major festivals and concerts across the US, including the likes of Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Folk & Irish festivals, as well as, the more intimate setting of theaters or small concert settings.
John Ryan manages Emish, Dublin City Ramblers and the Winters Brothers .
Wednesday night 12/4/13 8 pm EST Some Good Craic welcomes direct from London " The Craicheads " !!! Music and an interview with Mick O'Beirne .
The popular London Irish band release Brewed in London on 20th December 2013
When two Irishmen, an Englishman, a Frenchman and a Bulgarian all walked into a bar, no one could have predicted what would happen next.
Those guys were The Craicheads – one of London’s hardest working bands – and the bar was Wards, the inspiration for “Take Me Back To Harrow”, one of the tracks on their debut album Brewed in London.
After honing their craft in venues across the capital, the popular five-piece have now captured the fun and energy of their live set on record.
A collection of original tracks and covers performed in The Craicheads’ inimitable style, Brewed in London is a reflection not only of the band’s rise through the London pub scene but also the diverse backgrounds of its members, who were brought together by their love for playing great music.
Charismatic lead singer Mick O’Beirne belts out the tunes with power and passion, Ben Gunnery (fiddle/whistle) and Tim Eyles (guitar/mandolin) handle the lead role to devastating effect, and Olivier Atila Aslan (drums) and Stefan Marinov (bass) hold it all tight together at the back, driving the songs forward with an irresistible groove.
This week I'll be interviewing direct from California SHAMROCKABILLY BAND !!! "CRAIC HAUS " ... It'll be a rocking night on Some Good Craic and Jonny Ra will be back during the show with the news . Craic Haus rocks and mix a little Irish into Rockabilly . The show starts at 8 pm . 6/27/12 Dont miss it.

Disparaging. an Irish-American. 2. a person of slight build who is unfit for hard labor.
The brain child of a future banker and a drop out bartender, The Narrowbacks are a fresh voice for songs and stories old and new. After some late night sing songs, a couple whiskeys and a few lost jobs we came up with a young punk attitude that found itself running through the veins of an old time folk band. The Narrowbacks: American First, Irish Always.

sixteen. He grew up developing a great love for both Irish and American music. In the early 90’s, he started the folk/rock band Screaming Under Stars, which went on to open for The Commitments and Black 47. Since then Tom has been working full time, often in a band capacity but he has developed an extensive solo schedule also. He has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with acts such as Solas, Makem & Spain, The High Kings and Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfetones. Playing 5 nights a week for the last 10 years from Connecticut to Vermont, Tom has recently played The Canton Irish Music festival, The Worcester Irish Music festival and The Dorchester Irish Music festival. In addition to the countless numbers of bars, theaters and concert halls along the way, Tom has developed a strong following with his unique take on traditional and contemporary Irish music, and his ever growing collection of original compositions.

Irish Punk at its Finest Since 1990!
*2012 Independent Music Award Winners for Best Punk Album (The Black Irish)*
From an Irish pub to an Academy Award winning movie: The Mahones have come a long way in 2 years! Heralded as pioneers of the Irish punk scene, and internationally recognized as one of the best and hardest working punk outfits around, The Mahones formed on St. Patrick’s Day in 1990, and have been working on their own brand of Irish punk ever since. With a working class ethic and a love of classic punk, Finny McConnell formed the band to combine his love of punk rock and his Irish culture.
With 9 classic albums under their belt, the band experienced a tremendous surge in popularity upon the release of their 10th album, The Black Irish. It was voted Best Punk Album at The Independent Music Awards (USA), and the band’s hit song “Paint The Town Red” was featured in the climactic final fight scene of Academy Award winning film The Fighter. The band was determined to follow-it up with an even bigger, better sound. Their 11th studio album, Angels & Devils, certainly rose to the challenge. It was the 2012 winner of Best Irish Punk Album, as voted by leading worldwide Irish Punk authorities Shite N Onions (USA), Paddy Rock Radio (USA), Punk.ie (Ireland) and Vandala Concepts (Canada). It made the top 100 new releases on iTunes worldwide, and the top 10 in Germany.
