With a lifetime of touring and performance experience between them, musicians Josef Crosby, (founding former member and co frontman of Scythian), and Victor Gagnon, (a highly sought after Nashville studio musician and former fiddler of the Celtic Rock band 7 Nations), have joined forces to create something new – a sound that’s hard to define but comes from deep roots and deep soul.
During his stint with Scythian, Josef headlined some of the top Americana music festivals, including MerleFest, SummerFest, Wakarusa, DelFest, Wintergrass and Bristol Rhythm and Roots. He has been greeted by crowds of 10,000 at the biggest Celtic music festivals in the country, and played for Popes, Presidents and Prime Ministers.
Pigeon Kings deftly balance elements of Americana, Celtic, Contemporary Singer Songwriter and Rock into a hybrid uniquely their own. And while all very serious players, it’s also a band who learned early the value of showmanship and energy both of which they gladly bring to their live show.
