Ten years on the road! 10 years on tour. Over 700 concerts. From the trade press as "the only legitimate successors of the DUBLINERS?" They have reached the full decade.10 years of full houses. 10 years of anecdotes and comedy-ready entertainment around the "green island". 10 years of traditional Singalong.You like it originally. Little pop frills, if possible no mainstream variations with harmonious preparation for the common taste. Irish folk in its purest form ? this is what the STOKES stand for. Wordy, powerful voices, passionate and with a lot of feeling for the heart of the people on the Emerald Isle, they formulate again and again a musical declaration of love to a country and its cultural tradition.Tours with Noel McLoughlin, the DUBLINERS singer Seán Cannon and many others make it clear that this opinion is shared by Irish folk greats? an impressive record for such a young band career. And if the Stokes themselves in the motherland of Irish folk have been voted the best band of the year twice by Tourism Ireland, that is almost a knighthood for a multinational band.
