Join us in the Bear Den on Friday, March 16 for prize giveaways and free live music featuring the Copouts!
“These guys may not be from Ireland, but the whiskey, beer and soul are deep within” a very true saying for these Vermont based rockers.
Hailing from the wild northern forests of Vermont, the Celtic Folk Punk band CopOuts are bringing their special brew of traditional Irish tunes and originals to listeners everywhere. Their high energy shows are influenced by bands like the Pogues, the Dubliners, Dropkick Murphys, and Flogging Molly. The heavy blend of rock and roll guitars, crashing drums, and thunderous bass lines, with traditional instruments like mandolin, fiddle, and bagpipes will have you rocking out before the night is through. The band has been taking New England by storm for over 5 years and has no plans on stopping!
Location: Bear's Den, Burke Mountain Resort, East Burke, VT
