Friday Night Concert Series: The 19th Street Band - The Yards
Aug 19, 2016 — 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

When Caolaidhe came from Northern Ireland to the United States to make music, he met the love of his life and musical partner, Meghan, in the process. Caolaidhe and Meghan started out singing old Hank Williams and John Prine songs for friends, and were soon asked to perform locally. They invited Mike, an eccentric preacher’s son, to perform with them, and a connection was made. The three of them knew that they wanted to share joyful music with the world. Since then “The 19th Street Band” has had the honor of sharing the stage with country music stars such as Rodney Atkins, Craig Morgan, and Chuck Mead. They have opened for The Wheeler Brothers and Spirit Family Reunion at The Hamilton as well as Grammy Award-winning Western Swing icons Asleep at the Wheel at The Birchmere. They have also packed the house at such venues as the 9:30 Club, Black Cat, Strathmore, Jammin’ Java, Rock & Roll Hotel, Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival, The Washington Folk Festival, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in Nashville, The Black Box in Belfast, and Hill Country BBQ and Pianos in NYC.

If “The 19th Street Band” could be summed up in a phrase, it would be “old school”.  From their folk instruments (upright bass, fiddle, and acoustic guitars), to their approach to music and performance, “The 19th Street Band” has followed the traditions of The Carter Family and The Kingston Trio while also integrating modern elements of Americana, Country, and Rock ‘n Roll. “The 19th Street Band” has built its fan base the old school way, one fan at a time. They play hundreds of shows a year, from backyard BBQ’s to honky-tonks to amphitheaters. Every time they play, their music and energy connects with a new person in the crowd.
