Highly acclaimed Sacramento band Nine-8ths Irish combines the talents of five accomplished musicians to present music that is "Irish and a wee bit more." Incorporating their experiences in a wide variety of musical genres - from bluegrass and jazz to country and and contest fiddling - into traditional Irish music, Nine-8ths Irish enjoys sharing their love of this dynamic music with audiences throughout northern California and beyond.

Nine-8ths Irish began its journey to bring Irish music closer to its California home in 2007, with the release of West of Ireland, the band's debut album. West of Ireland, which has received radio airplay from coast to coast, was also the Celtic music debut for FGM Records, the band's label. Nine-8ths Irish is Chris Dunlap, bodhran, cajon and vocals; Linda Relph, fiddle and vocals; Bo Bowen, whistles; Kathy Barwick, guitar, five-string banjo, acoustic bass and vocals; and Brady McKay, vocals. Out on the Ocean, the band's second album, is an inspired blend of songs and tunes that includes standard Irish session tunes, subtly modernized arrangements of traditional songs, sterling new tunes written by Linda Relph and even an a cappella vocal quartet number.

The wide range of material on the album helps showcase the diverse talents of each member of the band. With the release of the eclectic and accomplished Out on the Ocean, Nine-8ths Irish takes its place among the most compelling, crowd-pleasing and original bands playing traditional Irish music within the U.S. The band will be performing at national festivals and doing regional touring in support of Out on the Ocean, enchanting audiences with its rousing and unique brand of "Irish music - and a wee bit more."
