Traditional Melodies with Rhythmic Garnish

Headlining the 2019 Dayton Celtic Festival!

Socks in the Frying Pan

From unknown band in 2014 on their first US endeavour to one of the most sought-after Irish music groups in the world today, Socks in the Frying Pan’s meteoric rise continues still! Performing in 46 American states, extensive tours of Europe, playing for Presidents and dazzling audiences all around the world, they are back with their first live album ‘Raw and Reel’ by unprecedented demand.

Hailing from the Irish music mecca that is Ennis, County Clare the ‘Socks sound’ came as a bi-product of three friends playing in pubs together, learning from one another and having fun. An album was the inevitable next step-their first unassuming entry into the world of Irish music recordings. Fast forward one year later and the album had won ‘Album of the Year’ from the Live Ireland music awards with the band scooping up the award for ‘Best New Band’ from the Irish Music Association. Due to unprecedented demand from fans globally, they are back with their first live recording to capture not only the virtuosic musical abilities and their pitch-perfect harmonies, but the fun, the joy, and the life and soul that goes into each live performance. Recorded in front of a sold-out capacity crowd at Glor theatre in their hometown of Ennis, the Socks are launching ‘Raw and Reel’ across the US and Canada during their 2019 summer tour.
