About Us

Country and bluegrass from the original deep south swamp, Cork city!

We are Rattlesnake County, a country and bluegrass band from Cork, Ireland. We play weddings, festivals, gigs, sessions, corporate events, and any kind of party that requires a good time to be had by all! We specialise in countrified versions of classic songs and vocal harmonies with a touch of old-fashioned gospel.

Rattlesnake County crawled out of the swamp of Cork in 2011, leaving behind a series of large debts and tall tales. Raised by a stack of abandoned guitars and a pack of wild cards, we were found in the woods playing our own brand of feral acoustic country ranging from Johnny Cash to ZZ Top to Tom Waits, with a few surprises in-between.

We perform regularly in Cork city and county, and band members run sessions in the city – check out the Audio and Video page to get a flavour of some live performances.

If you’re looking for a band for your wedding, have a nose through our dedicated Weddings page to find out how we can entertain your guests on your big day.

For booking information, please phone Dylan on 087 9764765, email rattlesnakecounty@gmail.com or send us a message through the Contact page.
