Wildfire Poets is an Americana band based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. The band combines a soulful blend of folk, country, blues, Celtic, pop, and more. Songwriters, Kevin Michael Thompson and Shannon McLaughlin originally formed the group with the intent of being an old-time string band.  However, when they began playing together as a group, it was quickly apparent that the music wanted to go in another direction. They wanted the freedom of having a variety of instruments and the ability to go in any direction that the songs were taking them. The band has adopted the maxim, “follow the muse and not the rules.”  The music ranges from well-crafted and tuneful songs to Civil War ballads to Irish pub songs to ghost stories and folktales. 

Wildfire Poets functions as a band but also as a musical collective with several members performing as solo artists as well as with other groups. These varied and unique backgrounds bring depth and variety to Wildfire Poets.
