“When Metal meets Trad” – JOE.ie
The Scratch are a 4-piece acoustic act from Dublin, Ireland. Born from a shared love of acoustic guitar, metal and traditional Irish music, The Scratch have moulded triumphant melodies with the groove and intensity of metal.
Started as a fun experiment in the kitchen of a house in Perrystown, Dublin, The Scratch have already built up a serious buzz in their hometown. A recent busking trip to Rory Gallagher festival in Ballyshannon saw the band score their first viral video, racking up an astonishing one million views in just a week! The video has been shared all around the world, captivating audiences of many different nationalities and catapulting The Scratch into the global consciousness.
With their biggest show to dates scheduled in Whelan’s Main Room, June 22nd and two singles on the way, 2017 looks to be their year.
