Ireland’s Influence On The American Rock Scene – From An American

Ireland’s Influence On The American Rock Scene - From An American   Have you ever tried to define that “something” that Ireland has? That “Irish flair”? I was trying to write a description, but any attempt was terrible. It’s very difficult to express it with words, but y’all know what I’m talking about. So, while famous bands and artists like Thin Lizzy, U2, The Pogues and The Dubliners were taking stance as classic Irish Rockers, their sound and their Irish-being was influencing a new generation of musicians on the other side of the world: (drumroll)… America!   Let me introduce you to… 3 Irish-American artists who brought the Irish flair to the American rock scene!   Dropkick Murphys I’m American so naturally the first band I’ll mention are the Dropkick Murphys. They bring Irish flair  to St. Patrick’s Day festivals around the world and they kick ass when they’re gigging bars around Boston. They are one of the most famous American Celtic Punk Bands. Dropkick Murphys just released their new album “11 Stories of Pain and Glory”, but they are slaying the American scene since their foundation in 1996. The founding member Ken Casey, bass guitarist and singer, took inspiration from The Pogues, The Dubliners and Greenland Whalefishers to fuse the band’s iconic Celtic sound with American Punk angst.   Sorry fans but their Dublin July concert is already sold out! We’ll all need to be faster next time, myself included.   Flogging Molly This is the story of Dave, a kid that grew up on the south-side of Dublin. He left his beloved city to move to California...
