Mill Creek Irish

Presented by Granite City Folk Society at Bo Diddley's Pub & Deli

Mill Creek Irish was born in a North St. Cloud neighborhood a few years ago when some friends started playing music inspired by Irish folk groups of the 1960's to the present. The band covers music from Planxty and Patrick Street to the Pogues; from the Clancy Brothers and Mary Black to the Dropkick Murphys. Beyond the Irish repertory we might hear songs by Richard Thompson or James Taylor.
