We are Cool McFinn, a Celtic music combo based in northern Virginia. With musical roots ranging from folk-rock to jazz, we play traditional Irish music with American drive and energy.

The group's name is a wordplay on Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn McCool), the famed hunter-warrior of Irish, Scottish and Manx legend.
Our acoustic sound is best described as "Celtic with Kick" with influences stretching from the Bothy Band to Dave Brubeck, from Flook to


Miles Davis, from Altan to the Byrds. Think of the Chieftains backed by Crosby, Stills and Nash and you have Gaelic cool-- Cool McFinn.
