A unique and shining light in the Celtic/Irish folk/rock music scene, Craic in the Stone has become widely known over the past decade for their engaging storytelling songs and tight, captivating, and unique sound.
Talented lead vocalist Janelle Vione drives the melodies with her expressive and emotive vocals alongside Chris Caputo, whose harmonies give goose bumps! Interwoven with their charisma is the virtuosity of veteran fiddler Matt Brislawn, all supported by a stellar rhythm section featuring the acoustic guitar mastery of Jay Rofsky, with Scotty McKay driving the beat on traditional Bodhrán and percussion, and Bill Strongin laying down the lines on electric bass. The solid musicianship comes from a combined 150 years of professional experience in the rhythm section alone.
Multi instrumentalists Matt, Bill, and Scott add variety to the band’s ever evolving sound which includes our original songs, traditional Irish drinking and storytelling songs, Scottish standards, and unique covers of modern pop music in a refreshingly different Celtic folk/rock style.
