Bio

The FENIANS are an electrifying Irish musical quintet formed over 15 years ago in Orange County, CA (now there's irony) and are considered by many to be the leading band of their kind in the US today. The FENIANS offer a mix of their original creations, and contemporary and traditional songs, in their live set. Their foundation is decidedly Celtic, but there is no mistaking the complimentary influences of Rock, Folk, Bluegrass, Jazz, and World music. If ever there was a band whose members make up a potent body of music, it is The Fenians. Terry Casey - lead vocals and mandolin - the heart, Nate Light - bass, vocals - the pulse, David Burnett - whistles, sax, flute - the soul, Chris Pierce - drums, vocals - the bones, and Rob Williams - vocals, guitar - the muscle, through their music and voices represent everyman - sweet and sorrowful; brave and beautiful; angry and amused. Since 1990, The FENIANS have garnered an impressive list of accomplishments and honors, headlining major theaters and festivals across the U. S. and Ireland., including: the House of Blues, The Milwaukee Irish Fest, Chicago Irish Fest (Gaelic Park), the Stonehill Irish Festival (Boston), and The Quays (Galway), one of Ireland's premiere live music venues, to name but a few. In 1999, The Fenians were inducted into the Guinness Wall of Fame. The Fenians recorded works include the highly successful 'Live at the Harp' and 'A Distant City Street', featuring original songs, signature arrangements of traditional Irish selections, and a few surprises that The Fenians will leave you to pleasantly discover on your own. 'Band of Rogues' was recorded live before a sell-out audience at the Galaxy Concert Theater, the CD blends five of The Fenians' own songs along with time honored favorites and gives a great example of the band's live atmosphere. 'Have Fun or Get Out!' and 'Every Day's a Hooley' are their most recent CD releases, both of which were met with critical acclaim. The FENIANS live show is truly a spectacle which leaves audiences wanting to return next time round. The band is made up with consummate professionals and their behaviour and approach to the performance is exemplarary. Slan Abhaile!
