The Grinning Barretts Vancouver Island Celtic Punk Rock

The Grinning Barretts are bagpipe strangling, vocal chord mangling, gormandizer uplifting, Riot Brewing imbibing, Vancouver Island Celtic punk rock. They’ve taken Celtic sounds & mashed them up with gritty punk rock passion to create a wild ride of traditionals, originals & additionals that will move your feet into jig formation & bring out your inner rabblerousing.
