Biography

Seven Nations is a Celtic rock band that formed in New York City, New York, in 1994 under the name Clan Na Gael. The band changed its name in 1996 because a Nevada folk music group was already operating under the same name [1]. The band’s original members were Kirk McLeod (vocals, keyboard, guitars and highland bagpipes), Neil Anderson (vocals, highland and uilleann bagpipes, scottish smallpipes, tinwhistles and mandolin), Jim “Struby” Struble (vocals, acoustic and bass guitars) and Nick Watson (vocals, drums and percussion).

Watson left the band in 1997 and was replaced by Ashton Geoghagan. Anderson left the band in 1998, and in 1999 Dan Stacey (fiddle, highland step dancing) and Scott Long (highland bagpipes) joined Seven Nations’s lineup. Geoghagan was later replaced by Christian “Crisco” Miceli, who rounds out the band’s current membership.

The band regularly tours across the US, has appeared on ESPN, CNN, and CBS, and has sold over 125,000 albums without signing to a major label. The band’s most successful release to date was And Now It’s Come to This, released on Razor & Tie Records.
