The band has written and recorded 105 original songs that appear on many of the bands twenty-five CD recordings. Many of the original works written by the band are based on Celtic history.

Hailing from the historic Gold Rush Country of America, the four-five member Black Irish Band of 28 years, have a musical style that is as timeless as the rugged landscape of the west, a tribute to the people whose lives were spent building the world we now take for granted.
