The Killdares« Back to Events
The perfect blend of rock, pop and Celtic
The Killdares have come to be known as one of the hottest, cutting edge bands in music today, Celtic or otherwise. Blending traditional Celtic playing skills, power-pop accessibility, and straight up rock ‘n’ roll hooks, The Killdares have created a fresh sound that appeals to fans of all ages. Even die-hard fans of purely traditional Celtic music have embraced the band’s powerful genre-bending sound. Expanding the definition of “Celtic,” the band uses the unconventional pairing of screaming, fire-driven fiddle and bagpipes with the wail of electric guitar, bass and drums to create brilliant arrangements of traditional tunes and original compositions.
