The Real McKenzies

The Real McKenzies is a Canadian Celtic punk band founded in 1992 and based in Vancouver, British Columbia. They are one of the founders of the Celtic punk movement, albeit 10 years after The Pogues.In addition to writing and performing original music, Real McKenzies perform traditional Scottish songs, giving them a new punk-influenced sound. They have shared stages with many other bands including Rancid, Shane MacGowan, NOFX, Flogging Molly, The Misfits, Metallica, and Voodoo Glow Skulls. In 2012, they delved into covering songs from popular Canadian singer-songwriter Stan Rogers with their version of "Barrett's Privateers" appearing on their album "Westwinds". Their 2017 album "Two Devils WIll Talk" features a cover of "Northwest Passage".
