Strongly influenced by Bluegrass, Old Time Country and Folk Music, fused with traditional folk songs from this side of the Atlantic, Pilgrim St bring a warm and lively atmosphere to their music and have garnered a glowing word of mouth endorsement from venues around the country with their powerhouse live performances. Drawing from fellow luminaries such as Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, The Pogues and Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions outfit, Pilgrim St are about to bring their infectious melodies, harmonies and songs to Venues all around the country.
With a setlist made up of covers and their own original songs they have graced the stages of Electric Picnic and Vicar street plus toured all over the country. They are about to embark on a Nationwide tour from May straight through to November 2018. (Full list of tour dates below).
In Sept 2018 the band are set to release “Pilgrim St” the EP and the raucous sing-a-long feel-good lead single “My Little Blackbird” will be released on June 8th 2018 to get the party started. The EP was Produced by Oisin Leech (The Lost Brothers), Recorded in Experimental Audio, Crumlin by Steve Shannon and Mastered by Tim Martin.
