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.
