Cutthroat Shamrock Rhythm & Roots AfterParty at O'Mainnin's Pub

September 10, 2012

Cutthroat Shamrock performs live in concert at O'Mainnin's Pub in historic downtown Bristol on Sept 16. Cutthroat Shamrock combines the speed of bluegrass with the drive and energy of punk rock and then tops it all off with alittle celtic influence. -Fronted by dual vocals and backed by solid bass lines, the momentum gained by two drummers make this a combination to wake up any size of room. -Each song sounds different from the last yet some how familiar. train like rhythms are traded in for finger picking and the rockabilly slaps of the upright bass are replaced with long dark notes played with a bow. instrumental breaks introduce jigs and reels into almost every song, with guitar leads that would seem more at home on a fiddle or penny whistle.
