Welcome to the digital home of Boston Blackthorne, New England’s premiere Celtic and Americana Rock Band.

Boston Blackthorne has been performing with the same core members for over 25 years. Their sound is a unique blend traditional Celtic and Americana in a driving format- more rock than the Clancy Brothers, more folk than the Dropkick Murphys while sharing some of the traditional repertoire of both.
