The Peelers


The Peelers were formed in a small farmhouse kitchen in Glengarry County in 1999. Born out of loose evening sessions over ice and rye, the band has evolved to become one of the most exciting and energetic live Celtic folk/punk acts in Canada.

The Peelers bend the rules of tradition, with their contemporary Irish/Gael blend drawing more from the insurgent nature of artists such as Shane MacGowan & The Pogues, The Mahones, The Waterboys, Black 47, and Tom Waits, while still maintaining a glint of the sound upon which they were weaned.
