With a decades worth of headlining Roots and Celtic festivals to selling out nights at rock venues The Town Pants own brand of Celtic roots rock rebel spans five albums so far, backed up with a legendary live show that’s garnered them fans internationally from New York to Norway.
And while The Pacific Northwest may not be the first place you would expect to hear rollicking Celtic roots music, but The Town Pants are determined to change that. The Vancouver, Canada based band combines aspects of Irish traditional, folk rock and roots Americana, fusing their signature dual lead vocals to create their own unique brand of high energy "West Coast Celtic." that remains in the heart and head long after the music stops. There are lots of Celtic folk rock bands out there, but rarely does a band has this combination of passion, energy, animation and spirit that makes for some of the most imaginative songwriting you’ll find in the genre.
With performances in hunderds of cities and over a dozen countries, The Town Pants have become a consistent audience favorite at Celtic, Folk, World, Irish and even Rock festivals throughout the United States, Canada and in Europe. The Town Pants’ last studio CD Shore Leave was hailed with critics praise as their best album yet.
The best is yet to come however, and the band will have their latest work in hand this summer. Titled "15", the CD contains 15 songs and also marks the 15th anniversary of the band. The album contains 7 new recordings, as well as 8 songs from our long out of print album Piston Baroque from 2001, remixed, remastered & reimagined for this album.
