Wild Colonial Bhoys
Wild Colonial Bhoys
Wild Colonial Bhoys is more than just an Irish band - they are an Irish American band. Theirs is like a blended whiskey: it’s a musical melding of both the old and the new, from the peat smoke scent of the ould sod to the can-do spirit that embodies the American dream.

Growing up in an Irish American family, singer Adam Coolong says, “was really a combination of those two traditions, and it’s distinct experience from either one alone, really.  On one hand I enjoyed American things like backyard barbecues, baseball and Fourth of July fireworks, but on the other we had Irish ballad-singing at our weddings and wakes, the older generation in the corner telling stories of emigration and about finding their way in a new country.  It was really sort of like having a foot in both camps.”

It was that tradition and perspective that led Coolong to form WCB, fourteen years ago.  The lads who started as an Irish ballad-singing acoustic guitar duo have since matured into a Celtic rock tour-de-force and now have seven albums and thousands of miles behind them.

They render radiant, expansive harmonies for strings and voices, original and traditional tunes and folk ballads, favorites and downright far-fetched selections suited to many occasions. For ceremonies and celebrations, festivals and front porch parlors, we bring you musings that are grounded in Traditional Roots, Celtic and Americana. Exploring with an Independent spirit, roving over the wild and storied landscapes of life, collecting, tinkering, and translating our heritage, we seek the alchemy of fulfillment through self-expression.
