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.  

Sláinte!  🍁 ☘️ 🍂

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

"PUB TUNES" Album Release Party at Muldoon's June 6th 






















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.






We Are Happy to Announce the Release of Our 4th Studio Album, PUB TUNES!  





















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.
