Adam and The River Blackwater Band

Adam and The River Blackwater Band

 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Hand clappin’, foot stompin’ Celtic music with an edge.


Emerging from Adam’s basement in 2010, Adam & the River Blackwater Band (RBB) made their entrance onto the Celtic-Rock scene with their debut album Don’t Drink The Water. At live shows you’ll experience everything from the expected traditional pub sing-a-longs with an edge, originals, and even covers of rock and punk songs all “Celtified” for a fresh unique sound that makes it all but impossible to not have a good time.

Having the instrumentation of a solid Rock band allows the RBB to take on any genre, from folk to rock and punk. If you’re looking for a night out with a high-energy Rock band, then look no further. RBB skillfully blends elements of traditional Irish and Scottish music into an upbeat, high-energy night full of singing, drinking, dancing, and more drinking. They will leave you wanting more!
