The Hounds of Finn is a high-energy folk-rock group forged from the roots of Celtic and American traditions. Based in St. Paul, MN, the Hounds perform both original and standard material inspired by Celtic, Americana, Bluegrass, and folk/roots music from around the world; topped off with a sprinkling of traditional Irish and Scottish tunes.
The Hounds have been performing together since 2007 and have produced two full length CDs, three EP’s and a full length live performance DVD. They have also written a jingle for Finnegans Beer, “Drink Like you Care”. They are currently in production for a new CD which is to be released spring of 2015. The band signed with Twin-Cities based record label New Folk in 2010, and is distributed in North America through Allegro.
