Mick O’Toole formed in 2012, in the deepest, darkest depths of the shire, in Calne town Wiltshire. This town would be the breeding ground for their unique style of playing chaotic Punk, intertwining it with their ancestral Celtic and English Folk heritage, writing some of the best Celtic Folk Punk the SouthWest has to offer. The boys have a connection with the audience that goes beyond the music, It comes from their DIY attitude and working class mentality.
Mick O’Toole have a clear cut sound within a genre that is crowded by great talent, but are often compared to the likes of The Dropkick Murphys, The Pogues and ‘Mumford and Sons..with a pair of bollocks’.
Their performance and real organic authenticity creates an atmosphere that transcends the music at every show. Their one real goal is to write music that brings folks together for a good ‘ole knees up, and a grand old singalong.
For fans of: The Pogues, Dropkick Murphys and drinking music.
