Passion and pride in the land of their ancestors but also a willingness to experiment a bit and step away from the confines of Irish folk and inject other cultures and music into what they do. And all the time with a smile plastered across their faces.
The obvious fun they have is infectious and if the only thing Celtic-Punk achieves is to make people happy then The Muckers have got a surefire hit on their hands. Get on board before they become massive! Reblogged this on seachranaidhe1.

The Muckers are working on their debut album, which will be released sometime this year. I was in the army those years and totally disconnected from the music scene. The next day we woke up in Bushwick, it was March 17, right after a blizzard.
It was sunny, beautiful, cold and I was finally in New York.
It was an almost sold out show and it was the moment that I told myself that the dream was over, I had finally did it—this is reality and I was in it right then and there. After playing a couple of shows, we played a show at Berlin in mid August and at that time I was looking for a drummer. I saw John Zimmerman playing drums for Newborns. I remember I was looking at him the whole night in a daze.
The week after the show we were in a practice room with John getting ready for the next show. This [new] album is all about love and loss and my frustration of waiting so long and fighting for something that I love. BTR: Tell me about your history in making music. EM: My first instrument was guitar and I started making my own music a long time ago and it was so horrible.
They sound so bad, just disasters. But I worked on getting better everyday by listening to more music as much as I can and practicing. But last year when I came to New York I was a little bit disappointed at first. I leave everything behind to play my music here and for me it was like life or death—I burned all these bridges and there was no turning back and without music, being in New York was pointless for me.
I remember the first show I saw was some local band and it was terrible. The second one was the same.
But after a couple of months going to more shows and searching I just found it and it clicked. I connected with the people that I love, found good music and good vibes.
