River Drivers is an acoustic band from Bristol whose passion-infused style draws from Celtic, Americana and Mountain influences. The music of this multigenerational group of friends is known for its high energy, its themes of social justice and its stories of hard-working women and men. The River Drivers can be heard at festivals and concerts throughout the east coast as well as across the sea in Ireland. Members of the band also bring their large repertoire of instruments and songs to many local Pennsylvania and New Jersey traditional and ballad sessions. Their CD, River Drivers, has garnered great reviews from major international folk and Celtic music journals including No Depression, fRoots and Irish Music Magazine and is played on radio stations from coast to coast and in Europe and Ireland as well. They are working on their second album which should be released by the end of the year.
