Seven Nations Band

Not your father's Celtic Band, Seven Nations plays fusion-rock, folk and roots, and dance music.

With a number of original members from northeast Florida, the Celtic rock band Seven Nations has strong local roots in Florida and in Celtic music. Founded in New York, the band shares a love of rock, a love of the traditional Celtic songs, and the ability write new songs that blend the two worlds. As it has often been said, "Seven Nations is not your father's Celtic band."

Improbably, there are at least two bagpipers in the band, playing as many as three different types of that instrument — and it works. Together with guitars, a fiddle, keyboards, and the occasional penny-whistle, Seven Nations produces a sound that is unmistakably rock, and unmistakably theirs alone.

Their performances include elements of roots and folk, dance, and fusion-rock, and whether the song is traditional or new, it's played with a passionate and rollicking style that will make audiences dance, dream, and even shed a tear.

Seven Nations now includes founding member, Kirk McLeod on vocals, keyboards, guitar, and the Great Highland Bagpipes; Jim "Struby" Struble on vocals and acoustic and bass guitars; Angelo Christian Miceli on drums; Joh Pilatzke on fiddle, and Brad Green on bagpipes. 

For a number of years, Seven Nations have performed yearly at the St Augustine Celtic Music & Heritage Festival in March. In addition to performing at festivals around the world, Seven Nations has a heavy touring schedule.  Whenever the band returns to Florida they are engaged to perform at Ann O'Malley's Irish Pub here in St. Augustine.
