Biography

Drawing from the diverse New York Metro music scene, the Highland Rovers Band fuses popular rock percussive rhythms, bagpipes, and vocal harmonies to create an intricate and fresh sound. HRB's multi-layered, upbeat, and danceable music showcases their universal, appeal to both mainstream modern rock lovers and culturally diverse audiences searching for a distinct celtic flavor.

With their debut CD “Brave Lads All” in 1999, the Highland Rovers Band launched their unique brand of Irish “kick” – a mix of rock ‘n’ roll, southern rock, and pop. But long before the first CD, the Rovers began building a fan base in 1993 that today spans generations. The band combines their own original music with several energized versions of celtic classics performed in a unique upbeat style.

Today, the HRB’s resume includes performances across the United States and Canada, at venues ranging from well-known Irish pubs to larger arenas such as Shea Stadium. The band has performed with top Irish artists including the Saw Doctors, the Young Dubliners, and The Prodigals. HRB has also performed numerous shows with their longtime friends and mentors, the Marshall Tucker Band.

The band has produced four albums to date. The current CD, “Live..From County Fairfield,” was released in the fall of 2006.
