Folk/Rock music, spiced up with Irish Trad! Based in the north of Italy (weird, innit?) and made up of lads who, in one way or another, lived or spent too much time in Ireland!
Too rock for the Folkies and too folk for the Rockies, the Bastards could please or disappoint almost everyone. Formed back in 2007, they play an unique blend of folk/rock and Traditional Irish Music. Uilleann pipes, tenor banjo, mandolin, Irish flute: there are few others bands in the folk/rock scene that could compete with the Bastards in terms of deep knowledge of pure Irish Traditional Music and Irish culture and society.
As written in a review of the first album, "Uncle Bard & The Dirty Bastards don’t pretend to be Irish. [...] They are showing “huge gratitude and all the due respect to Irish music and culture”. They are really Ireland’s adopted sons and have brought a new breeze to the European Celtic punk/rock scene."
In the last few years only, the band played more than 300 gigs all over Europe and shared the stage for three times with worldwide famous celtic-punk band Dropkick Murphys (USA), toured Italy with legendary Flogging Molly (USA), then played with Kensington (NET), Volbeat (DEN) or Frank Turner (UK) but also with traditional acts like De Danann (IRE), Four Men and A Dog (IRE), Beoga (IRE), Dubliners (IRE) and many more.
