3 Pints Gone perform their
Celtic traditional-style folk songs at bars, Celtic fairs and
Renaissance festivals around the United States. Their distinctive
sound is full of high energy and harmony-rich arrangements. They
entertain by telling stories through the songs that leave the audience
feeling like old friends. They have recorded much during time
In June of 2009 3 Pints Gone began recording the new CD Home Brew. Kathleen is currently working on the enhanced files which should appear here on the website shortly after the release.
Jesse Linder joined 3 Pints Gone in March of 2009. While performing at the Greater St. Louis Renaissance Festival in May-June of 2009. Our friends: Vince Conaway played hammered dalcimer with us almost every morning; Matt Lenger played bodhran with us most days; and Richard Miller (Currently playing with James and Jon in Waterstreet Bridge) sat in and played bodhran with us for the weekend.
James Kuehl was an important member and guitar player for 3 Pints Gone from 2003 until Oct. 2008.
2007 was the release of Auld Lang Syne.
2006 was the release of an all sea shanty and sea song CD There Is a Ship.
2005 was a great year. Well, the old Of Moose and Men CD is outdated now. The 2005 recording project allowed up to pick our favorites from the CD and record them again, live. So One More Round features some of those songs, and a guest performance by Randy Adams on "Whiskey Was My First."
Health the Company CD release
party was a big success March 6th 2004 at the Irish Cultural and
Heritage Center in Milwaukee, WI. Not only is the new CD superb,
but 3 Pints Gone were interview for the local newspaper. Guitar
player James Kuehl is a perfect fit. As a
special treat, Michi Regier, who played an excellent violin/gypsy fiddle
on the CD, and Paul Vnuk Jr., who played percussion on the CD,
joined the trio on stage that night.
In the Fall of 2001 they also hired "stunt" guitar player Randy Adams and full-time for the 2002 season. Randy added his rich guitar style giving fuller arrangements to some of the old favorites. He loves a good beer and a bubble bath (grin). He has some drinking songs that are real catchy and a few new adult verses to the Moose Song. Kathleen likes to say that they perform songs about Love, War and Inebriation!
As a special treat, in 2001 Steve Starks started sitting in with the band at KCRF and special occasions on bodhran. His personality and powerful drumming adds extra momentum to the sea shanties and war songs. Also at KCRF you may hear, or rather feel, the low bass voice of Mike McCauley. Kathleen loves having a "real" man to sing with instead of all of those tenors. Sometime she swears that the stage shakes with the vibration of Mike's low rumble.
In the Fall of 2000 Bill & Kathleen changed the group name to 3 Pints Gone and hired finger-style singer-song writer Colin O'Brien. He joined them for a season and played on their CD, The Beaches of St. Valery.
