THE OLD SPEAKEASY by Kyf Brewer and Barleyjuice

New Release! THE OLD SPEAKEASY by Kyf Brewer and Barleyjuice

Barleyjuice is a nationally known Celtic Rock band from the Philadelphia area. Founder Kyf Brewer has been on the rock scene for over four decades, fronting the bands The Ravyns (MCA) and Company of Wolves (Polygram/Mercury), as well as recording four solo albums. His original Barleyjuice songs such as ‘Weekend Irish’, ‘What’s Up Yours?’, ‘Get Your Irish On’, ‘Celtic Girl’, and others have been featured in movies, TV shows & radio programs.

‘The Old Speakeasy’, his newest release, features several former band members as special guests and was scheduled for release in 2020 before Covid held them back from touring with it. The Old Speakeasy’ marks Barleyjuice’s 8th studio album produced and recorded by Kyf Brewer, mixed & mastered by Cliff Hillis.

Long-awaited by fans, it was Kyf’s intention to recruit as many former members of Barleyjuice as possible for guest appearances. As fate would have it, current members actually changed as the tracks were being recorded. Former featured band members include violinists Shelley Weiss & Billy Dominick, bassist Dennis Schocket, mandolinist Graham Ford, and guitarist Dave Woodworth, along with friends and family who had contributed over the years. Brewer’s daughter Scotlyn and wife Beth provided backing vocals on ‘Rose of Garden City’ and ‘High on Highland Life’, and daughter Remi plays the trumpet you hear on ‘Merry Queen of Scotch.’

Barleyjuice presently consists of Kyf (vocals/guitar/accordion/harmonica/bagpipes), Eric Worthington (bass/vocals), Chris Shepherd (guitar/mandolin/vocals), Billy Dominick (fiddle/vocals), and daughter Remi Brewer (drums/vocals).
