Penny Whiskey is a group of fun loving folks who truly have a good time doing what they love most. entertaining. The brain child of Kirk McWhorter (from the critically acclaimed Celtic band 'Kilbrannan') Penny Whiskey promises to offer the best in acoustic music from both Ireland and Scotland along with home grown bluegrass and folk influences.
The foundation of Penny Whiskey is the melodic vocals of Kirk, who also plays guitar, banjo, bodhran and whistles, backed up by the solid playing of Jon Carlson on acoustic guitar and mandolin. The group is rounded out by Dan Lelito on bass, Paul Kneis supplying the *flash* on mandolin, guitar and flute, and highlighted with the bagpipes by Rob Greenwalt- and of course, everybody sings. including the audience!
With audience participation songs, rousing pub sings, comedy tunes and tearful ballads, Penny Whiskey offers something for everyone.
