About the Band

dog_blck

Originally formed as an acoustic trio by Rick Bedrosian in 1993, Hair Of The Dog has become one of the world’s foremost Celtic rock bands. They’ve released ten wildly popular CDs including “at The Parting Glass”, “Let It Flow”, “Donegal” and “Liam Left The Lights On Again”. In May, 2012, The Irish Echo stated, “Liam Left the Lights On Again…in it’s entirety is simply a delight to listen to” and in January, 2008, the Kingston, New York Freeman Times declared, “Hair Of The Dog plays with a cohesive oneness that most bands never get. They are a regional music treasure.”

Hair Of The Dog was also mentioned in Billboard Magazine as one of Irish Music’s biggest sellers. Their song “One Sunday Morning” was featured on the 2003 Colleen Records compilation CD “Songs of Irish Freedom Vol. 3”. In 2005 they appeared on “One Child At Time”, a charity compilation. Other artists included U2, James Taylor, The Chieftains and Carly Simon. Hair Of The Dog has repeatedly been named “Best Band” since the late 1990’s, by Upstate New York’s top regional newspapers and magazines.
