Pilgrim Street bring bluegrass to The Dock

Pilgrim St

The Dock in Carrick-on-Shannon will be filled with sounds of bluegrass, old time country and folk music, fused with traditional folk songs from this side of the Atlantic on Friday, March 22.


Pilgrim Street 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 Street 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 January 2019.
In September 2018 the band are set to release Pilgrim St the EP and the raucous sing-a-long
feel-good lead single My Little Blackbird was released in 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.
Pilgrim St is comprised of Peadar Farrelly on guitar and vocals, singer/songwriter
Eugene Donegan on banjo and vocals, Eoin McDonnell on mandolin and vocals, Francis McGinn on bass, Mark Lynch on dobro, Brendan Kelly on accordion and vocals and Cathal McQuaid on the fiddle.
Tickets are available on (071) 9650828 or at www.thedock.ie
