The Kilmaine Saints
The Kilmaine Saints is the brainchild of Jon (bass, bagpipes) and Mike (drums), two members of a Harrisburg Pipe & Drum band that conspired to create a Celtic rock band in 2009. Soon to follow was Brendan (vocals), Liz (fiddle), Billy (Banjo, Bozouki, Whistle, bagpipes), and Dave (guitar). Thus, the Saints were complete, and a campaign of mayhem, music and whiskey began.
Since their first show, the Saints have continued to pound through blistering, high-energy live sets that keep people wanting more. They’ve played hundreds of shows in pubs and venues all over the NorthEast U.S. They have several large Irish festivals under their belt and are regulars at.
July of 2010 marked the release of their debut album “The Good, The Plaid & The Ugly”, after which the accolades and legions of fans have continued to grow. The album received glowing praise from every site that reviewed it, and was ranked in the list of Top Celtic CD’s of 2010 on several of these sites. September of 2012 saw the release of the Saints second studio effort, “Drunken Redemption”, a hard-hitting follow-up to their debut CD. June 2014 brought an EP, “Untraditional”; a collection of classic traditional Irish songs… but with the Saints signature sound and twist on them. With a growing collection of songs in their catalog ,t’s a good bet you’ll hear one of their songs being played anywhere that pints are raised & the whiskey is flowing.
Down by the Glenside
Humbly paying homage to the Irish generations that have built this and many other great nations worldwide, and in the spirit of the Clancy’s, Makem, Kelly, and the Tones, Down By The Glenside brings you the traditional sounds of Ireland.
