Biography

Kilmaine Saints is the brainchild of Jon (bass, bagpipes) and Mike (drums), two members of a Harrisburg Pipe & Drum band that quickly became friends in 2009. After learning that they each shared a love for music and a background in Punk Rock 101, they conspired to create a Celtic rock band that would “play for beer” the following St Patrick’s Day. They soon realized that they would need other partners in crime, and began the search for additional co-conspirators. Jon grabbed his friend Craig (guitar), who was already playing in another band, but was more than willing to help the Saints get off the ground. Frank (banjo, bass, guitar, harmonica, cuatro), another pipe band member, was quickly snatched up after it was revealed that he could play any instrument he was dared. Murphy (accordion, bagpipes, whistle), yet another pipe band member, signed up next, and while his skills and experience were slight, his enthusiasm was second to none. After an ad was placed in the paper (because everyone knows an Irish band needs as many able bodies as possible), the band found their next two members. Brendan (vocals), who was born in County Mayo and already a session singer in Irish pubs, was cajoled into singing after a late night of whiskey-drinking and emailing. Liz (fiddle) was the next to respond to the ad, and although they tried on several occasions to convince her that she was way out of their league, she stuck around. After Craig left the band a short time later, Frank introduced his friend Barry (guitar).
