With a decades worth of headlining Roots and Celtic festivals to selling out nights at rock venues, The Town Pants' own brand of Celtic roots rock rebel spans five albums so far, backed up with a legendary live show that’s garnered them fans internationally from New York to Norway.
And while The Pacific Northwest may not be the first place you would expect to hear rollicking Celtic roots music, but The Town Pants are determined to change that. TheVancouver,Canada based band combines aspects of Irish traditional, folk rock and rootsAmericana, fusing their signature dual lead vocals to create their own unique brand of high energy “West Coast Celtic.” that remains in the heart and head long after the music stops. There are lots of Celtic folk rock bands out there, but rarely does a band has this combination of passion, energy, animation and spirit that makes for some of the most imaginative songwriting you’ll find in the genre.
With performances in hundreds of cities and over a dozen countries, The Town Pants have become a consistent audience favorite at Celtic, Folk, World, Irish and even Rock festivals throughout the United States, Canada and in Europe.
The bands latest release, titled “Connections”, contains 15 songs and was recorded over a 2 day period in Vancouver in the spring of 2014. It is a collection of the bands favorite rowdy sing-a-long songs…
The Probables are a feel-good,Fire Folk-Grass,Roots Rock Band from the rolling hills of western New York. Formed in March 2016, The Probables, fuse, Folk,Bluegrass ,to deliver its deep soul reaching sound for the listener. and can also provoke thought at the same time. The Probables are…Steve Johnson, former front man for BIG LEG EMMA, Tom Hodges (former lead guitar player from BIG LEG EMMA ***now on Mandolin), Dylan Derby (THE DERBINES) Stand up Bass and Matt Gronquist (Accordion,Fiddle). to complete its distinct sound.
So much great music comes from the great state of New York that it can be a bit overwhelming sometimes to wade through all the new releases. The Probables broke though the stack for me and made an impression with their new EP The Home. They call it Folk grass and I tend to agree. Song writer and singer Steve Johnson gives us some great folk lyrics but I think Its Matt Gronquist on Accordion, Fiddle and Mandolin who crosses it over into that wonder blend of Bluegrass and Folk that makes this band a instant fave. The songs “I’m Home” and “Homeward Bound” were instant standouts for me and should be added to any Bluegrass or Folk radio rotation.
