Socks in the Frying Pan & Enter The Haggis

For over two decades, Toronto’s Enter The Haggis has combined bagpipes and fiddles with a rock rhythm section to create a distinctively eclectic sound, praised by The Boston GlobeThe Washington Post and Canada’s Globe and Mail. Their songs offer singalong melodies and deep, meaningful lyrics which tell the stories of everyday hard working people, often faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges. Signature songs like “One Last Drink”, “Gasoline”, “Down With The Ship” and “Lancaster Gate” have had millions of plays on streaming services, appeared in Hollywood movies, and have been performed and recorded by artists around the world.

Enter The Haggis is clearly comfortable on the stage and develops an easy rapport with audiences, sharing the stories behind their songs and laughing through tour anecdotes. Their show is exciting and dynamic, featuring unpredictable and spontaneous moments. One song might feature Brian Buchanan and Rose Baldino trading fiery fiddle lines, while the next song highlights Craig Downie taking a trumpet solo or ripping through a bagpipe reel. Sometimes during an encore, the band will leave the stage entirely to perform acoustically standing on chairs in the audience.

Enter The Haggis‘ commitment to putting on a great show every single night has made them a favorite at festivals and performing arts centers across the US and Canada.  As a result, ETH shows have become an annual tradition on some of the most prestigious stages on the continent. The band has also brought hundreds of fans on eight tours of Ireland and two of Scotland, forging deeper friendships with their supporters while exploring ancient landmarks and natural wonders across each country.

Enter The Haggis has appeared on “Live with Regis and Kelly” and “A&E’s Breakfast With The Arts“, and was the feature of an hour-long PBS concert special which aired for months on more than eighty affiliate stations across the US.  The band’s legions of die-hard fans (the self-described “Haggis Heads“) have crowdfunded the last five ETH albums, helping to propel their releases to the top of Folk Radio and Billboard Heatseekers charts.

Enter The Haggis is currently touring in support of its latest single, a true story sea-shanty called “Swallowed By A Whale.”

From unknown band in 2014 on their first US endeavor to one of the most sought-after Irish music groups in the world today, Socks in the Frying Pan’s meteoric rise continues still! Performing in 46 American States, extensive tours of Europe, playing for Presidents and dazzling audiences all around the world, they are back to re-release their 2019 live album ‘Raw & Reel’ after two years off.Hailing from the Irish music mecca that is Ennis, County Clare the ‘Socks sound’ came as a bi-product of three friendsplaying in pubs together, learning from one another and having fun. An album was the inevitable next step -their first unassuming entry into the world of Irish music recordings. Fast forward one year later and the album had won ‘Album of the Year’ from the Live Ireland music awards and the band scooping up the award for ‘Best New Band’from the Irish Music Association.Five years and two more multi-award winning studio albums later, the band have headlined all of the major Irish music festivals in Americaand have branched into the broader world music scene, performing at the likes of the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield Kansas, the Tønder folk music festival in Denmark and alongside such acts as Sting, Aretha Franklin and Rod Stewart at the world famousNew Orleans Jazz Festival to name but a few.Due to unprecedented demand from fans globally, they are back with their first live recording to capture not only the virtuosic musical abilities and their pitch perfect harmonies, but the fun, the joy and the life and soul that goes into each live performance. Recorded in front of a sold-out capacity crowd at Glór theater in their hometown of Ennis, the Socks are relaunching ‘Raw & Reel’ across the US during their 2023 tour after two years of online antics during the Covid pandemic.
