ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With influences that range from Americana (Eugene Donegan - Singer/ Songwriter), Folk Rock (Peader Farrelly, Richie Farrelly, Eoin McDonnell and Francis McGinn - Trigger and the Hitmen), Blues (Mark Lynch - The Great Simones) and Trad (Cathal McQuaid), Pilgrim St's sound is hard to pinpoint yet still feels familiar and reassuring.

Their debut EP Welcome to Pilgrim St has five very different songs that keep the listener engaged at all times. Title track ‘Pilgrim St’ opens the EP in a very Springsteenesque manner showcasing the three different vocalists, Richie Farrelly, Eugene Donegan and Peader Farrelly.

If the title track showcased the vocals then the second song, ‘I'm Going To Meet My Nancy’ gives the musicians the perfect canvas on which to paint their masterpieces with bass, fiddle, mandolin and dobro pulling out all the stops in this tale of revenge.

‘Jimmy's Deflation’ is up next and is probably the most contemporary song on the EP. Sung by Trigger and the Hitmen lead vocalist Peader Farrelly, it's haunting lyrics are matched perfectly by Cathal McQuaid's lilting fiddle. ‘How Can A Man Be Happy’ is probably the song closest to the Bluegrass genre with the refrain “when happiness costs so much“particularly apt in these times. The EP is rounded off with Richie Farrelly singing ‘My Woman’ - a throwback to the sixties with a catchy and rousing chorus that’s proven a perfect show-closer at Pilgrim St’s live shows sending punters home with happy ears and full hearts.
