I saw Druid Roots in September in Gulfport and they were absolutely awesome.  Not only are they incredible musicians, they are also very entertaining with their storytelling. This performance, I’m sure, will be just as good. Can’t wait! Go check them out.

James-Druid Roots 9-24-2011

Druid Roots is taking the ancient sounds of the Celtic people to a very new place. Three lads playing an eclectic array of 18 instruments, from bagpipes to bouzouki. This is high energy, feel-good Celtic music at it’s best. Yet the depth to their songwriting allows foot-stomping, river dancing numbers (like “Shee An Gannon”, for example) to play comfortably right next to the most gorgeous, haunting ballads (such as “Galatian Princess”). Firmly rooted in tradition, Druid Roots continues to go beyond anything that is typical to the genre. Daniel Joseph O’Ryan switches out instruments so fast he’s a blur. His use of effects is never too much and always unique. And these lads really know how to write a song. It’s like the Clancy Brothers meets Bono meets Leonard Cohen! The band members of Druid Roots, James John MacPherson (from Stonehaven, Scotland), Daniel Joseph O”Ryan (from Hollywood, California) and Marcus Paycer (fromTampa, Florida) all currently live in Saint Petersburg, Florida. The Tampa Bay area is already buzzing about the new sound. The shear energy of the live shows, that have the guys interacting directly with their audience, leave folks dancing and singing. The Druid Roots facebook page speaks for itself. The crowds can’t get enough of them, whether they are playing with the great Canadian group, Searson at the Dunedin Community Center or opening for Patrick Ball at the Saint Petersburg Palladium theatre. Interest in their debut CD, “Going Home”, has been huge. Released on Saint Patrick’s day, 2011, the album contains almost a full hour of original music. Ten brand new songs plus an extraordinary, haunting ballad rendition of “The Star Of The County Down”
