US Band The River Drivers to launch new album on 4th April

The River Drivers are a four-piece band from Bristol Borough, PA in the US and this is their self titled debut release.  

Its a rousing mix of rebel inspired folk music reminiscent of The Wolfe Tones at their best. The band include  Kevin McCloskey on guitar and vocals, Mindy Murray on guitar, banjo and vocals, Marian Moran on whistles and concertina and Meagan Ratini on fiddle.  

They deliver their material with a raw and honest intensity and the opening tracks which include Come Out Ye Black and Tans, Dirty Old Town and Tell God and the Devil a composition by Seamus Egan and Mick McAuley, should give you some indication of where what lies in store.  

Whiskey in The Jar, Woody Guthrie's Plane Wreck at Los Gatos and Dick Gaughan’s Erin Go Bragh follow on quickly. This is a late night, raise the roof type outing, delivered with an energy fitting to such occasions.
