Irish-punk pioneers The Mahones coming to Revelstoke

Legendary Irish-punk band The Mahones are hitting the stage at the River City Pub this Friday, Oct. 18.

Legendary Irish-punk band The Mahones are hitting the stage at the River City Pub this Friday, Oct. 18.

The band was formed by Fintan (Finny) McConnell, an Irish immigrant, for a St. Patrick’s Day party in 1990. 23 years, eight studio albums, and two live albums later, the band is still going, having helped create a genre of music that combines punk energy with traditional Irish melodies.

Their influences include the Clash, the Pogues, the Who and Husker Du. On top of the classic guitar, drums and bass, the Mahones include accordion, mandolin and banjo to create their sound.

The band has been the subject of a tribute album – a true sign of their legacy.
