Randolf & The Crokers are a six piece alt.country/folk band playing original music in Limerick since 2011. 2014 marked the release of our first single ‘Hangin’, and our debut EP ‘Conversation Amongst the Ruins’ followed in 2015. We toured the EP around Ireland in 2015/2016 taking in venues such as Dolan’s, Whelan’s in Dublin, DeBarra’s of Clonakilty and Kenny’s in Lahinch, and shared the stage with the likes of Mark Geary, The Lost Brothers, O Emperor and John Blek and the Rats as they toured Ireland. We were delighted to receive positive reactions from audiences and critics. A particular highlight of 2015 was playing ‘Ceol ar an Imeall’ on TG4.
We spent 2016 writing and playing a splattering of gigs including the Doolin Folk Festival, the Blues, Roots and Brass Festival in Whelan’s, and local gigs headlining the Thomond Sessions here in Limerick.
In June 2017, we were honoured to play the garden party in Áras an Uachtaráin at the invitation of President Michael D Higgins. We have just completed our second EP, ‘Tales of Little Lanes’ and look forward to touring it around Ireland this November/December. A video for our new single ‘Home’ will be released shortly!
