The McKrells

The McKrells are one of the Capital District’s most well-known Irish and bluegrass acts, who performed at the top of the local music scene for 15 years before taking a hiatus in 2006.

Folk singer, songwriter, and artist Kevin McKrell has had his songs recorded and performed by artists from around the world. He has performed in theaters, clubs, and on festival stages across the United States, Canada, Ireland, and the U.K.

Led by Kevin, the New McKrell’s is a high energy collective and a who’s who of North Country Roots Music, each player a top draw in their own right. John Kribs is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who is known throughout the Northeast for the classic roots rock band Johnny and the Triumphs, along with the beloved Raquette River Rounders.

On mandolin is Orion Kribs, a world-class string player capable of break neck speed and nuanced solo work so crucial to the McKrell sound.

Arlin Greene is the bass backbone of the group, a member of a musical family that has attained legendary status in the northeast. Son of the great Smokey Greene, he is a bassist of exceptional abilities, whether it is a high energy bluegrass stomp or one of McKrells’ Celtic ballads.

On percussion is Brian Melick, an active teacher and instrumentalist that has been featured on over 375 professional recordings.

On fiddle is Doug Moody, a Buffalo N.Y. legend for his work with the alt-country band The Steam Donkeys.

With each player in The New McKrells capable of lead singer status, the harmony vocals of this collective of like-minded musicians are stunning, the energy explosive, and each song a gem. They have been called amazing, stunning, brilliant … McKrellica.
