Barleyjuice is contagious.

New York's Irish Voice names Skulduggery Street "Best New Album of 2010". Columnist Mike Farragher says "Skulduggery Street is a piece of real estate that demands frequent visits…the best thing I've heard all year."

Irish American News columnist and radio show host Shay Clarke says of Skulduggery Street: "Barleyjuice have delivered a superb album, their best yet. Skulduggery Street could be their 'Tommy'".

NBC's The Office featured "Weekend Irish" in a March 2010 episode.

Chicago's IAN, the Midwest Irish Focus, and radio show "Blarney on the Air" ALL named Bonny Prince Barley "Celtic Rock Album of the Year 2008". IAN also named The Barleyjuice Irish Collection "Celtic Rock Album of the Year for 2009".

Fox TV's King of the Hill featured "Jig Set" in their St. Patty's Day episode, Cheer Factor.

Bonny Prince Barley and Skulduggery Street made Paddy Rock's top ten New Albums of 2008, and 2010, respectively.

iTunes includes "Whiskey To The Sea" on their Celtic Essentials Collection.

Celtic Mp3s names Six Yanks Best Celtic Rock CD of 2006. Skulduggery Street followed in their top ten for 2010.

Highlander Radio's listeners voted "What's Up Yours?" Song of the Year in 2005, "Celtic Girl" in 2008, and the band remains in the top ten on celticradio.net to this day.

Strains of "Donnie Scot" can be heard in the Sly Stallone film, Driven.

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger featured “The Hard Life of Ivan MacRae” in a 2018 episode.

With six studio albums and a double CD collection in their sporrans to date, these five spirited yanks have made themselves one of the most beloved celtic rock bands in the US.

Frontmen Kyf Brewer and Keith "Swanny" Swanson lithely cover lead vocals, guitars, accordion, harmonica, mandolin, bouzouki, and bagpipes. Both originally piped in the Loch Rannoch Pipe Band, and performed in Edinburgh’s Millennium March for Prince Charles. While Swanson was once a member of New York’s legendary Flailin’ Shilaleghs, Kyf’s been a pro performer since his first band, The Ravyns, produced the hit "Raised on the Radio" for the 1982 film Fast Times At Ridgemont High, and his second internationally known group, Company of Wolves released their eponymous 1990 Polygram album to critical acclaim.

Backing Brewer & Swanson are a mad trio of characters: captivating fiddler Alice O'Quirke, whose classical roots stray to Irish & bluegrass in the middle of the most authentic jigs & hornpipes; drummer John Tracey, a powerhouse of driving decadence; and hopping bassist Eric Worthington, musical snake-charmer of the deep and dulcet.

The ayes have it - Barleyjuice is a grand group of talented tunesmiths and prodigious performers, and the absolute best time you can have at a concert without removing your kilt.
