Rackhouse Pilfer are a six-piece bluegrass, folk, alt-country and Americana Band based in Sligo, on the northwest coast of Ireland.
Formed through lifelong musical friendships and bands ranging from folk and blues, to American country, traditional Irish music and even heavy metal. These early influences have brought the band to a radically distinctive sound and high octane performance on stage.
Along with original songs, the band performs bluegrass & folk songs, old-time country songs & reinterpretations of their favourite artists/music.
2013 opens with new audiences, new horizons, and new territories; Rackhouse Pilfer eagerly anticipate a busy calendar year with festivals and shows across Ireland and beyond.
Building on our success to date, we are looking forward to sharing our music with your audience, and help make this year as exciting for them as it is for us!
“Rackhouse Pilfer’s great energy and musicianship was one of the highlights of our show at Sligo Live. They’ll create a stir wherever they go”. – John Murray, The John Murray Show, RTE Radio 1
“We literally had to turn our punters away such were the large crowds that these guys drew. Currently a word of mouth phenomenon but not for long. The lads are the whole package; musically gifted, entertainers, incredibly professional and a delight to work with.” – Deirdre Melvin, Associate Producer, Sligo Live Festival 2012
“a fiery and exciting new band from Sligo, Rackhouse Pilfer’s music exudes energy and confidence making them a name to watch for” – John O’Regan, Music Journalist (writes freelance for FRoots magazine, Mojo & Irish Music Magazine)
