Celtic punk is
punk rockmixed with traditional Celtic music. The genre was founded in the 1980s by The Pogues, a band of punk musicians in Londonwho celebrated their Irish heritage. Celtic punk bands often play covers of traditional Irish folk and political songs, as well as original compositions. Although the plight of the Irish people is often a topic of their songs, it's not considered an overtly political genre. Prevalent themes in Celtic punk songs include Ireland, Irish Republicanism, the Irish diaspora, drinking, and working classpride.
The typical Celtic punk band includes a rock instrumentation as well as traditional instruments such as
bagpipes, fiddle, tin whistle, accordion, mandolin, and banjo. Like Celtic rock, Celtic punk is a form of Celtic fusion. Celtic punk is considered part of the broader folk punkgenre. Many Celtic punk bands emerge from predominantly Irish communities in cities such as Glasgow, London, Melbourne, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, New Yorkand Chicago. A related genre, Scottish Gaelic punk, is punk rock sung in Scottish Gaelic. Foremost of these bands are Oi Polloifrom Edinburghand Mill a h-Uile Rudfrom Seattle.
The roots of Celtic punk are in the
folk rockbands of the 1960s and 1970s who first electrified the music of Irelandand the United Kingdom— and in more traditional Celtic folk bands such as The Dublinersand The Clancy Brothers. The Dunfermline, Scotlandband The Skidswere possibly the first UK punk band to add a strong folk element, as they did on their 1981 album "Joy". Around the same time in London, England, Shane MacGowanand Spider Stacybegan experimenting with a sound that became The Pogues. Their early sets included a mixture of traditional folk songs and new original songs written in a traditional style - all performed in a punk style. [Scanlon, A. "The Lost Decade". Omnibus Press, 1988] Other early Celtic punk bands included The Men They Couldn't Hang, Nyah Fearties, and Australia's Roaring Jack.
More recently, Celtic punk has gained popularity with the success of bands such as
Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, and The Real McKenzies. Three media outlets of Celtic punk include "Paddy Rock Radio", the webzine "Shite 'n' Onions"(which releases compilation CDs), and a podcastcalled "The Scallywag Show" With Barnacle Brian.
