Name: The Clan
Formed in: 2013
The Clan are a band from Milan – Italy, formed in late 2013. Their sound is a mashup of punk rock and traditional Celtic & Irish music. The mix of electric guitars, bagpipes, violin, banjo and flutes makes them very recognizable. Their bigger inspiration comes from bands like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. They have released 3 album and 1 EP. From 2014 to 2018 they played more than 250 concerts, traveling between Italy and Europe, treading important stages, becoming headliner in many festivals and supporting important artists of punk and folk scene.
We can consider The Clan a sort of “party band”: many times they were the first choice for “Irish parties” and “Celtic festivals”. They always involve the audience with dancing, animations and catchy chorus, but they also have a powerful punk sound that could easily set off a pogo. The Clan have many collaborations with big artists like: Modena City Ramblers, Punkreas, Shandon, Vallanzaska, Folkstone, The Rumjacks, The Real McKenzie, The Mahones, Andre Toselli (Aka Andrea Rock from Virgin Radio) and many others.
