Pilgrim St

Strongly influenced by Bluegrass, Old Time Country, and Folk music, fused with traditional folk songs from this side of the Atlantic, Pilgrim St bring a warm and lively atmosphere to their music and has garnered a glowing word-of-mouth endorsement from venues around the country with their powerhouse live performances. Drawing from fellow luminaries such as Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, The Pogues and Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions outfit, Pilgrim St bring their infectious melodies, harmonies and songs to venues nationwide.

With a setlist of covers and their original songs, they have graced the stages of Electric Picnic and Vicar St, plus toured all over the country. Formed in 2014, the band released two EPs before their debut album, “Ash Into Gold Dust,” in 2021.

They released their second album “Folk Bones” in early 2024, recorded live in Black Mountain Studio over a few weekends in January.

Pilgrim St are a collective of musicians that includes Peadar Farrelly on guitar and vocals, Eugene Donegan on banjo and vocals, Eoin McDonnell on mandolin and vocals, Francis McGinn on bass, Mark Lynch on dobro, Brendan Kelly on accordion and vocals and Cathal McQuaid on the fiddle.
