Slugger’s Rule built their own brand of Celtic and folk music around the campfire. It started off getting together around a fire with songs, stories, and a healthy amount of booze. Over time, instruments were added and other influences surfaced, such as new songs from different countries and even a hint of bluegrass in their harmonies. However, their performances today stay rooted to the original fire pit where they would drink, entertain, sing, and discuss the history and meaning of the music that they love.
