Creative Process:
We are Minnesota musicians inspired by the Celtic music found in the pubs and clubs of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. We are influenced by the rich musical heritage that the Twin Cities fosters and we openly allow those sensabilities to enter into our music. We enjoy finding old celtic music that has been forgotten, not played anymore, or lost, and re-present those tunes, melodies and lyrics through our own unique musical lens.

Biography:
Equal parts pub and punk, the Tim Malloys fuse traditional Irish music with a raucous Minneapolis sound and sensibility. They're a cornerstone of the Twin Cities Celtic crossover scene, with five records released since their 1994 inception. Mashing up influences ranging from The Pogues to The Suburbs, the Tim Malloys are a bootlegger's dream of punk guitar, manic grooves, and rollicking callbacks. Something whiskey this way comes....

"A little punk, a little rock, a lot of rebellion (who says you have to be Irish to sing "God Save Ireland?"), the Tim Malloys are a rollicking good time. Go ahead, sing along—everyone else does."-Secrets of the City http://www.secretsofthecity.com
