Irish Celtic Folk Punk – Savannah, GA
“I dare say that In for a Penny are balladeers of the XXIst century. They take the spirit of The Dubliners and add some punk twist to the mix. Other definition would be a sort of a stripped version of The Tossers.” – celtic folk punk
The Irish landed in Savannah in 1734. It took 281 years for Savannah Georgia Irish Music to get rowdy… but it has now!
In For A Penny is a rowdy, four piece, Irish Celtic folk punk band. (Whew!) We’re ready to bring our folk punk twist to your favorite traditional Celtic tunes, as well as tons of rowdy original material to the dirty south, and beyond. Foot stompin’, beer drinkin’, whiskey soaked music, with the odd 80’s pop cover thrown in, just because every loves them and nobody else plays them. When In For A Penny cranks it up, it’s like having a St. Paddy’s Day party any night of the week! Get ready Savannah… things are about to get a little bit more rowdy around here!
In For A Penny draws inspiration from band ranging from Celtic Punk giants Dropkick Murphy’s and The Rumjacks to 80’s & 90’s greats Tears for Fears and The Cranberries as well as traditional Irish staples like The Dubliners. The members are equally as diverse, with backgrounds in punk, rap, hardcore and hair metal. Stories will be told, glasses will be raised and good times will be had by all as In For A Penny time and time again draws audiences into the party.
We’re tossing our hat into the ring here in Savannah and we’re not pulling any punches. Come on out and get rowdy with us. We’re sure you won’t be sorry!
