For Celtic punk rock workingman’s Irish pride, it doesn’t get better than the Dropkick Murphys.

The joyful, hard-hitting band out of Boston took the punk drive of the Pogues and turned it into rollicking Irish-American soul. Now, they’re touring the world, Celtic punk all the way.

Bruce Springsteen’s on their new album, plus a whole lot of Irish love. And on this St. Patrick’s Day, they’re live in the studio with us.

Al Barr, lead vocalist

Ken Casey, lead vocalist

Jeff DaRosa, band member

Tim Brennan, band member

Scruffy Wallace, band member
