First conceived in 2009 by members of the Lochiel Emerald Society Pipes and Drums in central Pennsylvania as a way to play bagpipes year round and get free beer and food, the Saints have been pounding through blistering, high-energy live sets that keep people wanting more ever since. They’ve played hundreds of shows in pubs and venues from Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Maryland to Virginia, New Jersey and Connecticut. They have several large Irish festivals under their belt, including Pipes in the Valley, Celtic Fling, ShamrockFest, Annapolis Irish Festival and the Wildwood Irish Weekend, all festivals with an average attendance in the thousands. Along the way, the Saints have shared the stage with many notable acts: Dropkick Murphys, Reverend Horton Heat, The Rovers, Albannach, Icewagon Flu, Barleyjuice, Scythian, Screaming Orphans, The Pubcrawlers, The Young Dubliners, The Mighty Regis, and the Red Hot Chili Pipers, to name a few. Averaging around four shows a month, the lads (and lass) and their Guinness-soaked hearts continue to storm the North East.

 

July of 2010 marked the release of their debut album “The Good, The Plaid & The Ugly”, after which the accolades and legions of fans have continued to grow. The album received glowing praise from every site that reviewed it, and was ranked in the list of Top Celtic CD’s of 2010 on several of these sites. This popularity has led to label interest, many newspaper and radio interviews, and airplay on several mediums – locally, nationally, and internationally. September of 2012 saw the release of the Saints latest studio effort, “Drunken Redemption”, a hard-hitting follow-up to their debut CD. With a mix of original songs and old Irish Traditional tunes, which the Saints put their own modern spin on, it’s a good bet you’ll hear one of their songs being played anywhere that pints are raised & the whiskey is flowing.
