Jasper Coal: Drowning the Shamrock

December 5, 2013

Birmingham, Alabama is not a place I think of when I think of Celtic-rock’n’punk, if I was to think of a genre it would be dyed in the wool Southern-rock. Jasper Coal has changed that musical association for sure, for sure. Named after the coal mining town of Jasper in central Alabama a big destination for Irish immigrants in the 1800’s the six piece take their inspiration from the legends of the Irish in the mines of Jasper. Jasper Coal play big, solid Celtic rock rooted in their local traditions with strong fiddle work from Kevin Nicholson inter-playing with the piping of Ryan Morrison and the rowdy barroom brawl vocals of Ian Hoppe.
