Hammy & The Pilgrim
Hammy and the Pilgrim is a four piece rock band from Limerick, Ireland. Beginning in 2016, the band has evolved its sound from a blues dynamism akin to The White Stripes and The Black Keys to a bigger and badder rock vibe, which echoes early Queens of The Stone Age.
The band honed their skills by appearing informally in the vibrant local music scene, playing acoustic and electric sets. The name Hammy and The Pilgrim honours two beloved but tragic pet chickens who shared their shed for early practice sessions with the boys - they met their grizzly end through the jaws of an urban fox who got in after a late Monday night jam.
Now playing gigs all over the country the band have begun to draw large crowds as support for nationally recognised acts such as Le Gallaxie & Hermitage Green . As a result of their "Put It On Ice" single launch in July they were selected to play this year's Electric Picnic.
Most recently, Hammy & The Pilgrim have released their second EP "Nothing To See Here" which was described by Hotpress Magazine as "a strong sign the band have grown into their skin and cultivated their own style of blues rock".
On 8/9/2017, the band released their Sophomore EP "Nothing To See Here" to a sold out show at the Kasbah Social Club, Dolan's, Limerick
