We are The Founding

 

The Founding is a Progressive Folk band with Celtic roots from Kalamazoo, Michigan. With their timeless, energetic, and powerful approach to songwriting, they strive to constantly push the boundaries of the Irish and Scottish music traditions.  Over the past two years The Founding has become one of the premier acts in their genre in Michigan and promises to be one of the best of its kind. This young band has performed at venues throughout the United States, making appearances at such notable events as the Michigan Irish Music Festival, the Boston Irish Festival, and The Austin Celtic Festival, and many more. Their discography includes "Form." (2017), an EP To a City, Fair (2016), and the single "Silhouettes Against the Soil" (2016). Their recordings have been featured on radio stations and podcasts around the country.
