Hailing from South Buffalo, the heart of the Western New York Irish Community, Crikwater formed in late summer 2010 to celebrate their Irish roots and collective love for Irish and Celtic Traditional music. Crikwater performs a variety of pub songs, ballads, sea shanties, rebel songs, and other traditional songs. In addition, the band includes a number of traditional tunes (jigs, reels, etc.). Although primarily focused on folk music from the Irish and Celtic traditions, Crikwater also incorporates songs from other traditions and genres, such as Rock, Classical, American and Canadian folk, and Eastern European traditional. They have an energetic roots folk sound with an edge that's sure to get your feet stomping!
