The rise of RACKHOUSE PILFER is unstoppable. They have been enthralling crowds throughout Ireland and Nashville and were Special Guests to Imelda May at SLIGO LIVE in October where they were a big hit with the audience, so much so that Imelda May invited them to join her for other dates.

“Rackhouse Pilfer headed to Nashville to record their second album and their first with self-penned material. Described as a “bluegrass, folk, alt.country and Americana band”, the six-piece Pilfers aren’t short of energy, and they can play up a storm. This is reflected in the infectious enthusiasm that ripples through the more upbeat tracks such as Bright Lights, though arguably the slower material (Lorraine, Fallen Leaves) is more impressive. One obvious weakness is the lack of a distinctive singer – the vocals are shared – but the upside is that the voices blend well in harmony on the likes of A Sailing Song. The Irish influence remains strong amid all the Americana, not least on a frantic version of Shady Grove.”
