The Dirty Pints
Céad mile fáilte! This Falls Church-based trio formed in 2006 out of a traditional Irish music session at Ireland's Four Provinces.
The group sports three traditional instruments--fiddle, whistle, and guitar--and plays a mixture of traditional Irish tunes and songs, with the occasional American classic!
Alan Carrick, lead singer and on whistle and bodhran, is a native of Galway, Ireland. He played clarinet with the Galway Youth Orchestra and sang in the Irish Youth Choir prior to moving to the United States. He has played with a number of bands throughout his years on this side of the Atlantic. Arlington, Virginia native Tim Griffin took up guitar around the age of twelve, influenced by classic rock legends such as the Beatles and Rolling Stones. He has accompanied numerous artists and bands in a variety of genres. In addition to his work with the Pints, Tim also performs as a duo with local artist Amy J. Sullivan and in the band The Whiskey darlings. Marc Cheek is from Durham County, North Carolina, and took up classical and acoustic guitar during his teenage years, eventually migrating to the fiddle and to Irish music in his twenties.
