Craic in the Stone was fortunate to get a shout-out on the podcast “Keith’s Music Box” during the July 9 show when he spoke to acclaimed Irish Singer/Songwriter Davey Furey. The podcast also used the intro of our version of Bron-Y-Aur Stomp by Led Zeppelin as a tag - it's the first cut on our new CD, "Pub Tunes", available on our website and all streaming platforms.
Keith's Music Box is the podcast for people who are passionate about rock music. In-depth interviews with legendary and up-and-coming artists. Curated playlists that trip through the decades on an exploration of the tastiest tunes. Classic rock. Hard rock. Folk rock. Alt-rock. Soul. Modern rock. A-sides. Deep tracks. Tune in to Keith's podcast and listen to the episode shouting-out Craic in the Stone here.

Muldoon's has undergone an impressive renovation and of course, are continuing with their long-held tradition of bringing in Irish bands to have the Craic!
Craic in the Stone was inducted into Muldoon's Hall of Fame just prior to the pandemic, and now return to Muldoon's Irish Pub for an afternoon of music, cold drinks, and great food, and their new CD, PUB TUNES!
Join us, it's free! Doors open at 12pm for brunch. Come early for the best seating.
Just released, Craic in the Stone’s fourth CD - PUB TUNES was recorded at Wellandia Studios and features traditional Irish and Scottish songs like: “Dicey Reilly” and “Donald Where’s your Troosers,” plus several originals in a similar vein like "We Drink When We’re Dry" and a fitting tribute to their favorite ale, "It’s Guinness.” A fun music video was filmed at Muldoon’s Pub a while back and is available on YouTube. But a big surprise comes right at track one with "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp,” a Led Zeppelin classic that takes on a Celtic-Rock sound, plus a party-ready version of the Proclaimers' "I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles).” Reflecting on the challenges we've all endured this past year is "I Will Not Be Broken.” Penned by Nashville singer-songwriter and great friend, Mare Wakefield, this powerful ballad has already become an instant classic.
The album is available for purchase conveniently on the music page of our website, as well as all streaming platforms.
Like everyone, the band has felt the pain of this pandemic; and like many tenured bands, the sound matures, the personnel changes, and the focus becomes clearer. Craic in the Stone is proud and pleased to introduce our new lead vocalist, Janelle Vione, joined by harmony singer Chris Caputo, and fiddle master, Matt Brislawn. During this break in live shows, Craic has been busy in the studio - recording, writing, and preparing for live music in 2021! CRAIC IS BACK!
