Hounds of Finn / Press

“…deep, focused, well-written songs from the heart.”

Mike Pengra - Radio Heartland (Minnesota Public Radio)

“I loved it! It’s so much fun to find a new group I hadn’t heard of before and be knocked out by them.”

Chris McGill - WSPN Radio (Saratoga Springs, NY)

“The [Hounds] deliver a musical variety that spans Celtic, Pop, Americana, and Folk with a vibrancy that is infectious.”

Shawn Vougeot - TSTV (MN)

“The quartet’s second full-length album, “Gravity Pulls,” boasts elegant fiddle and mandolin parts around the heartstring-pulling original tunes.”

Chris Reimenschneider - Minneapolis Star Tribune

“The Hounds of Finn have managed to blend Folk and Celtic music into a sound that is uniquely theirs. The lyrics speak to the heart, while the tunes speak to the feet, resulting in a band that appeals to a wide audience. They are always a crowd favorite not only at our festival, but at others around the country as well.”

Mike Wiley, Vice Chair/Entertainment Director - Irish Fair of Minnesota

“I had a MARVELOUS time working with Hounds of Finn. They bring to the table not only joviality and depth, they deliver an authenticity to Irish musical traditions that is uncommon for American-born Celtic-inspired music. On top of it all, they're terrific people and put on a great show. If I had three thumbs, they'd all be in the "up" position.”

Owen Sartori, Owner and Producer - F5 SoundHouse (MN)

“The Hounds of Finn wowed our audience, our vendors AND our staff! The musicianship was A-One! The synergy with the audience was energetic and the repertoire went above and beyond what you would normally expect from a Celtic group. We loved the diversity. Above all else – they are a PLEASURE to work with”

Dayna Calderon, Entertainment Coordinator - Evanston Ethnic Arts Festival

“You can hear the honesty in this band from a mile away.”
