It was the summer of 2008 when, after a pint or two (or five), siblings drummer Michael Sams and violinist Rachel Schott clinked glasses
and vowed to collaborate on an Irish-influenced American rock band. When they took off the beer goggles and realized that drums and
fiddle alone weren't going to cut it, they rolled up their sleeves and started the search for someone who could play guitar. And sing. And

roommate since high school, multi-instrumentalist Joe Kendall - a package deal! Once the band discovered that the nickname of
Cincinnat's all-irish regiment in the Civil War had been The Bloody Tinth, they knew they had struck gold.
When bassist Nick Lorenz joined the Tinth later that year, the line up was complete. Bookings at pubs and festivals in all the major
cities of Ohio soon followed, and an invitation to perform at the Ancient Order of Hibernians National Conference in 2009 launched the
band into the larger world of vibrantly performed, passionately written Celtic-influenced American music.
