The Moorings are an ultra-energetic quintet famous for delivering an efficient mix between celtic folk and alternative rock. Since 2011, the band has been faithful to the traditional themes of the Anglo-Saxon repertoire. It has been chosen many times to share the bill with the most respected bands of the genre such as The Dubliners, The Pogues or The Dropkick Murphys.

Their appeal for Irish music and punk rock has been revealed in “Pints & Glory” their 1st EP back in October 2011. A live record titled “La Cigale Unplugged” has also come out in 2013.
