Their music has been compared to Tempest, Loreena McKennitt, and Dead Can Dance with touches of rhythm and blues, and some Jethro Tull and Grateful Dead.

Black Irish

Hailing from the historic Gold Rush Country of America, the members of the Black Irish Band have a musical style that is as timeless as the rugged landscape of the west. The music is a tribute to the people whose lives were spent building the world we now take for granted. The band has a large compliment of traditional maritime and railroad music, as well as ethnic tunes in their repertoire. They excel at Irish & Scottish, Italian, and American folk music with an assortment of original songs and traditional western ballads. The bands musical style captures the spirit of the immigrants of this land, the men and women who tamed the Wild West.
