THE KITCHEN CRIMINALS
The Kitchen Criminals (TKC) is a four-piece ensemble from Pictou County. Their East Coast, Celtic-Rock sound was largely influenced by Atlantic Canadian bands MacKeel, Great Big Sea, Rawlins Cross, Dropkick Murphys and Fleur Mainville.
TKC formed in 2016 due to a shared musical connection, enthusiasm and a love for the typical East Coast kitchen party atmosphere. They have built a large fan base by playing for pubs, colleges and universities, as well as entertaining at private functions such as weddings, corporate parties, benefits and many more. Their music ranges from original songs, to fiddle reels and Celtic classics. This group’s musical appeal is one that extends into many stylistic tastes.
Outfitted with an acoustic guitar, fiddle, bodhrán drum, tin whistle, mandolin, and bass guitar, TKC set the stage with their Celtic instrumentation and rock approach to the music industry.
