Named after the famous Irish castle, the Kalamazoo band Blarney Castle is quickly becoming a fixture in Southwest Michigan since their origin in early 2015. The six members of Blarney Castle met while studying music at Western Michigan University and formed the band out of a mutual love for traditional and folk music.
Their music combines the technicality of Western classicism with the rich folk music heritages of Ireland and Scotland and a progressive energy that appeals to audiences of all ages. They frequently perform at local and regional bars and festivals in addition to collaborating with studio producers, videographers, educational institutions, and pursuing various solo endeavors. Their music has also been featured on NPR affiliates WMUK Kalamazoo and WUTC Chattanooga, as well as Michigan Irish Music Café and The Irish and Celtic Music Podcast. Their discography includes To a City, Fair (2016) and Silhouettes Against the Soil (2016).
