9 Castle Close was dreamed up by Kevin Maloney in 2006, when he wanted to take his love of Irish, bluegrass, pop and rock music and blend them into a unique style not found in the Irish music world. But finding musicians that shared this same passion and talent to appreciate and mix these styles was no easy task and it’s taken a few incarnations to get it right, but get it right they have! And in the band’s recorded and live performances, you can feel all of those influences melding into what 9 Castle Close was dreamed to be all those years ago.
To date, 9 Castle Close has logged hundreds of performances across venues large and small, from pubs and bars to private clubs and large festival stages, winning the hearts and ears of people everywhere they go. In 2020, the band will begin work on their extremely long-awaited debut album, following up 2011’s eponymous E.P.
