This Kingston (Ontario, Canada) three piece band plays an exciting mix of traditional and contemporary East Coast, Irish & Scottish Celtic Music (and a dash of Country). As individuals each member of the Irish Roots comes from a wide and diverse background, each accomplished musicians in their own right. Along their journey they crossed paths with one another, and recognizing their common interests resulted in the formation of “Irish Roots”.
