Greetings Craic Fans! 

Whew! It was a whirlwind tour in March celebrating St. Paddy's Day with shows from Jamul Casino, to the Shamrockin' Block Party in Old Town Newhall, with the Bowers Museum and Muldoon's Pub thrown in for good craic! BUT now it's time for our SUMMER FESTIVAL SEASON!  We love performing at these great Celtic Cultural events, so please mark your calendars and join in the fun!  These festivals are daytime, family-friendly, and a blast - plus the weather will be warm and beer will be cold!

Happy Thanksgiving from Craic in the Stone! 


"May love and laughter light your days, 
And warm your heart and home. 
May good and faithful friends be yours, 
Wherever you may roam. 
May peace and plenty bless your world, 
With joy that long endures.  
May all life's passing seasons 
Bring the best to you and yours." 
- Irish Blessing 

This holiday we are grateful to be able to play live music and thankful to all our fans, friends, and loved ones for your support.

Craic in the Stone - Band Shoutout on "Keith's Music Box" Podcast 

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
