Since January 2012, Old Man Flanagan's Ghost have been bringing a taste of Celtic music to Ontario audiences for years, as well as internationally via radio and digital media play. Inspired by bands such as Great Big Sea, The Pogues and The Dubliners, they are an energetic folk band exciting to both watch and listen to. 

Imagine the smell of the sea, cold pints of beer, old shipwrecks, stories of love and loss, and boisterous friends sharing a laugh and a song. Now mix it with an instrumentation that takes you on a journey east, and a feeling of being welcomed into your neighbour’s home for a kitchen party, THAT is the essence of Old Man Flanagan’s Ghost.
