OK, so I’ve been thinking about starting a pirate band for quite some time. Mainly since our other band didn’t get invited back to the Ren Faire, and I think they were looking for something more lively. Like pirate music. So when the call came from Bulldog, who books the bands for an event called Halfway to the Ren Faire/Kilts Nyte Out, I thought, “Hey, that’s as good an excuse as any.” And so the Privateers were born.
The Privateers are a Celtic-themed acoustic pirate rock band based in the Denver metro area of Colorado. Yes, we know you’ve never heard of acoustic pirate rock. We made that up to describe our high energy pirate songs played on (mostly) acoustic instruments.
Many of the band members have been performing Celtic music of various sorts for many years now. Some are newbs who show a lot of promise. Each of us brings something unique to the performances. Be sure to come to one of our shows and find out for yourself.
