Fire on McGinnis / Bio

With a totally unique sound that mixes the appeal of rock with the woodiness of Irish and Celtic music, Fire On McGinnis can only be described as a “head-banging, bagpipe playing live celebration.” The band evolved into the Celtic rock scene armed with the solid influence of bands like The Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly and The Pogues. For their debut album, Fire on McGinnis takes songs steeped in Irish tradition such as “Bedlam Boys,” “Foggy Dew," and “Nancy Whiskey” and plays them with the intensity of a riotous rock song. Using the same eclectic approach, their original songs conjure up images of men toiling on the docks, waves crashing on a rocky solemn shore or the grizzled face of a disenchanted king in hiding. While the band likes to keeps things hot with smoking fiddle and bagpipe jigs; their true goal is to get the audience fired up. In fact, they say Fire on McGinnis live is slightly larger than life – like an Irish pub with a hot stove in the corner! -Lara Kelleher
