About Bourbon & Shamrocks
Bourbon & Shamrocks was formed under the idea that music should be played with as much excitement as possible, the musicians having as much fun as the audience. As the name implies, they play a mixture of Appalachian music and the Irish tunes that pre-dated and influenced it. When the Scotts/Irish immigrated into the Appalachian region they brought with them two things that would greatly influence American culture, moonshining and their musical tradition. The members of B&S, being themselves of mostly Scotts/Irish descendent, are trying to keep alive at least one of these great traditions. They will also throw in a pirate song or two because, ARR!
Bourbon & Shamrocks has performed at a variety of venues including, Finnegan's Pub, The Kaffee Klatsch, St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2010 & 2011, Veteran's Day Parade 2010, International Festival of North Alabama 2010, Bandito Southside, The Sports Page, Lowe Mill Arts and Entertainment Festival 2010, Rocket City Brewfest 2010, Flying Monkey Arts -- Concerts on the Dock, Bandito Burrito Southside, as well as a couple of community benefits including, The Still Serving Veteran’s Irish Christmas Benefit and The United Cerebral Palsy's Benefit "An Irish Evening".
