"Homeland takes the roots laid by groups such as Big Country and Fairport Convention and combines it with the energy and devil-may-care attitude of younger players such as Ashley MacIsaac and Natalie MacMaster." - -Sara Farr


"...they perform with a raw energy that puts them in the same class as the cutting edge bands...HOMELAND is a mighty band." - -Harold Hughes


"In keeping with the pub fueled good time, Homeland has bypassed the poetic self importance of "traditional" Irish music and leapt straight into the fun of it all. Homeland takes music back where it belongs." - -Ryan Horns


"There is no penny whistle in sight when HOMELAND takes the stage. Instead there is a fusion of new rock with old Celtic." - -Andrew McGuinn


"They're not the Prodigals, they're not the Pogues. We don't know what they are, but we like em'." - -Rich Clemons, President

Bio

Homeland first started up its engines 11 years ago and took the Midwestern US by storm with a unique mix of Celtic and energetic American folk rock. It was a 'first of its kind' band and quickly built a huge base of loyal fans. But, 2009 brought a change in the band's lineup. The band added two new members: a new fiddler and an award-winning piper…and in came an entirely new dimension to the Homeland sound. Don't be misled--this ain’t some tired old Paddy punk band. It's an adrenaline-fueled Celtic rock ride as Homeland tears up the stage with blazing fast reels and jigs on the fiddle, Highland pipes, Uilleann pipes, Scottish smallpipes, and Irish whistles in a throwback to its deep Celtic roots. The band delivers Celtic-influenced original rock tunes, edgy & high-speed takes on old traditional tunes and hard-driving instrumentals like you’ve never heard.

If you haven't seen Homeland recently, you haven't seen Homeland. The band is blowing the top off festival tents and the shingles off the pub as it gives standing-room-only crowds a 200 mph white-knuckle ride from the first tune to the last ! So, grab your Guinness—wait, you’d better grab two!--tighten your seatbelt and get ready for the wildest Celtic rock ride this side of the Atlantic...because starting now, Homeland is rockin' the homeland like never before!

The March 2010 release of "Bridge" marked the birth of Homeland's new sound. Their first release with the new line-up, "Bridge" introduced Tyler's rock/jazz/celtic influences and Larry's blazing fast piping on the Highland pipes, Uilleann pipes and Irish whistles. "Bridge" is different from Homeland's previous musical efforts and marks a return to its roots and Celtic music heart.
