Best wishes to all of our friends and fans in the New Year!

Knacker’s Yard has had the pleasure of doing over 240 concerts and performances in 2018, including tours of Vancouver Island, mainland British Columbia and Alberta. Heading into the new year, our sights are set on (finally) touring in Ireland and the UK, as well as continuing our regular touring schedule throughout Western Canada.

We’ve met so many wonderful people, and performed at some equally amazing events and venues during this past year. Thanks to everyone who has made this possible! Slàinte mhòr!

In January we have concerts scheduled at the Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub in Whistler, as well as at The Irish Times Pub in Victoria, The Metchosin Golf Club and the Central Saanich Seniors’ Centre Association. Check out our Upcoming Shows for details and dates!

Also in the works is a new album which should be available by the end of January. Titled “The New West Session,” this album was recorded live off the floor, with the entire band playing together in the same room. The session was recorded direct onto 2″ magnetic tape at Fiasco Brothers Recording Studio (Engineered by Len Osanic)

We’ve uploaded two videos from The New West Session onto our Youtube Channel

In addition to these videos, our first five albums are also available for free streaming on our Youtube Channel.
