Chasing the craic are a very lively Irish covers group based in the north east of England. Over the last 20 years they have unquestionably become one of the most popular Irish music tribute groups in the UK.
Despite none of the members of the group being from Ireland, They have played at some of the biggest and most prestigious events not just in the UK but all over the world and have been accepted as a true Irish tribute act purely through their clear love and passion for performing that type of music, they have performed in Benidorm, Greece, Dubai, Germany and in 2010 they competed in the international Irish band competition in Las Vegas coming 3rd out of 38 acts.
They are one of, if not ‘the’ most popular and busiest Irish tribute bands in the UK playing up and down the country at private events and racecourses. They are also currently touring 2 theatre productions which have both performed internationally and in London’s west end!
If you’re having a Wedding, Birthday party, Anniversary bash, Funeral Wake or general all round knees up and your taste in music lies on the lively side of Irish, The Pogues, The Dubliners, The Saw Doctors, Flogging Molly, The Dropkick Murphys, Brendan Shine, Nathan Carter, The Fureys, etc. then this is the group for you! – They’re not a folk band, they’re not a ceilidh band, they’re not even a rock band, they are an out and out Irish music group, playing some of the greatest Irish classics in their own inimitable style, no-one is doing this selection of songs in this lively a style anywhere in the UK today!
