Venue: Musikfest Café presented by Yuengling

Philadelphia-based Celtic-tinged folk rock collective River Drivers is a band whose unique passion-infused style of music draws from Celtic, Americana, and Appalachian influences and features powerful and distinctive vocals and multi-instrumentalists. Their repertoire strikes a fine balance of originals and obscure folk songs, resurrected from deep folk vaults.

Anchored by Kevin McCloskey (vocals, guitar, mandolin, banjo) and Mindy Murray (vocals, guitar, banjo) with accompaniment by Marian Moran (tin whistle, low whistle, concertina) and Meagan Ratini (fiddle, Irish flute, tin whistle), their high energy music explores pervasive themes of hard-working people and social justice.

Their CDs, River Drivers and Big Oak Road, have garnered acclaim from major international Celtic and folk music journals including No Depression, fRoots, The Big Takeover and Irish Music Magazine. They can be seen at major festivals throughout the United States and Ireland.
