Rackhouse Pilfer formed in 2012 by the fireside of McGarrigles bar in Sligo, performing an acoustic set of bluegrass and folk hits from their favourite Americana artists. It wasn’t long before they had to be plugged in to be heard due to their growing popularity.
In that short time they have supported Imelda May, Paul Brady, Mundy, Royseven, Beoga, Birds of Chicago (USA), Cabin Collective, Leo Moran of the Saw Doctors, Steve Craddock Band Band (of Ocean Colour Scene). They have shared the stage with Kila, Brian Kennedy, Jack L, Fiachna O’Braonain, Eleanor McEvoy, Republic of Loose, Sandy Kelly, Charlie McGettigan, Lumiere.
The rise of Rackhouse Pilfer is unstoppable. They have been enthralling crowds throughout Ireland and Nashville and were Special Guests to Imelda May at SLIGO LIVE in October where they were a big hit with the audience, so much so that Imelda May invited them to join her for other dates.
