I recently went to a bluegrass concert, and I realized that the purpose of bluegrass is to showcase fine stringed-instrument playing. (The band had guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo and string bass.)

I suggest you think of a local feature such as a mountain, river or creek and name your band The [Local Feature] String Band.

This will convey where you are from and how you sound, but it will not limit you to any particular kind of music. If you want to leaven the mix with a Greek tune or Czech polka, nobody can complain of false advertising.

In my opinion, 'Celt' and 'Celtic' are getting worn out. The world seems to be dividing among those who have no idea what you're talking about and those who sneer.

I'm quite taken with the band name... The Duncan McFarlane Band

only from the wife of one of the other band members!!
But when she tries to interfere with the band business
too much, we all usually riposte with the
word 'Dobly' (due reference to Spinal Tap)

Go for it, Frank! (but what's your surname?)

I'm orginally from Evanston, Illinois, so I could call my band "The Chicago Sanitary Canal Boys" (if I had a band and it was all-men).

I believe my daughter used to sing (on occasion) with a group called Piper Doon (as in piper down - the bagpipes were broken or the piper was out of commission - I don't know which) at a pub called WB Yeats in Chapel Hill North Carolina.

Somewhere in that little story of performing trad Irish Folk in an Irish pub in the middle of the Appalachain mountains there has to be a name for a band.

What about Savage Squirrel? I had a folk/rockabilly/punk mixture thing for a while called the Bloody Holley's. I had a line in a song that said "the radio was blaring out Buddy Holley." One night when I was playing a writers night in Nashville I had to many beers and said Bloody Holley instead. One of the guys in the round with me asked who the Bloody Holley's were after. I laughed and thought it would be a cool name so later in Louisville Ky. I formed a little band that was pretty intense. Just an experimental thing and real aggressive. I named it after my slip up. We would pack the house every night and everyone always had something to say about the band name. SOme good some bad but it caught attention and stuck in people's heads.
