"Upbeat, loud, & rollicking, the long-running Bend, Oregon based band, Five Pint Mary, plays a unique blend of Irish and American folk rock. Five Pint Mary is lead by it's original band members, Michael Holmes (guitar/accordion/vocals) & Sarah Pollock-Holmes (vocals/guitar/Irish tin-whistles), and are graced by the huge talents of members Rick Havern (banjo/vocals), Matt Gwinup (mandolin/cajon /vocals), Tyler Cranor (bass/vocals), & Evan Holmes (violin). Collectively, this multi-generational group of seasoned musicians dish out a well-honed brew of spirited music, both traditional and original. Finished off with layers of tightly woven 3-5 part harmony vocals, the band creates a sound that is infectious and fun. Bordering on the boisterous, their sound hearkens back to the old-world pubs of Europe. Influenced by the traditional music of Ireland and Scotland, a bit of the Eastern block, and infused with a ripple of American Bluegrass, Five Pint Mary delivers a fresh and lively world sound."
