Old Man Flanagan's Ghost have been bringing 'Music with a Celtic heart' to audiences for years. Inspired by bands such as Great Big Sea, The Pogues, The Dubliners, Flogging Molly, and more, they are an energetic folk band exciting to both watch and listen to. Launched in Jan 2012, they have impressed audiences everywhere, playing notable Toronto venues including Hugh's Room, The Hard Rock cafe, The Sound Academy, The Opera House, The Tranzac Club and The Horseshoe Tavern. They have played soft-seat venues such as at The Gravenhurst Opera House and headlined Festivals such as the Trenton Scottish Irish Festival (2019) and the Cobourg Highland Games (2015 & 2017). They performed for multiple years in the Toronto Beach Celtic Festival, played at Nathan Philips Square as part of the 2016 Canada Transplant Games, and at The Harbourfront Centre as part of their Dancing on the Pier series in 2016 and 2017. They have performed for the St. Andrew's Society's Fall Mixer and at The Saint Patrick's Parade Society's Grand Marshall Ball. They have played community events such as Rib-fests, the 2016-2018 Rosedale Mayfair, and several street festivals including The Feast of Saint Lawrence and multiple years in the Pickering Village JAM Festival and the International Beaches Jazz Festival. They helped celebrate Canada150 on stage at SesquiFest in London, Ontario in 2017 and played at the Canadian National Exhibition in 2019. Internationally, they were first aired in Limerick, Ireland on the Eclectic Celt radio station, and enjoyed an in-person radio interview at Frederiksberg Lokal TV in Copenhagen, Denmark. They have participated in International Virtual Festivals during the CoVid pandemic including the Samhain New Years Celtic Festival (2020 - U.S.A) and The Barbados Celtic Festival (2021).
