Rackhouse Pilfer

We are delighted to announce that Rackhouse Pilfer are performing in the Big Red Barn on Friday 24th July at the Rooskey Heritage Festival.

Rackhouse Pilfer are a high-octane six-piece bluegrass and american roots band. They perform a mix of original songs and their own unique take on songs from Bruce Springsteen, Ryan Adams, Gillian Welch, Steve Earl, John Hiatt etc as well as traditional Bluegrass songs. Each of the six members sing and there are big harmonies.

Rackhouse Pilfer  will be a fantastic headliner act for the festival opening night. They are expected on stage after our earlier activities finish (more on that later!).

Heres a couple of songs to get you in the mood.

The first is a version of Bruce Springsteens Atlantic City.  This is closer to The Band's version.

The second is a Rackhouse Pilfer original Angela, sung on the pier in Mullaghmore.

The third is a live version of The Mountain by Steve Earle, most famously sung by Levon Helm. This impromptu performance, it really shows the bands strengths.
