The Claddagh Fund is the charitable foundation of Dropkick Murphys, founded in 2009 by Ken Casey. Honoring the attributes of the Claddagh Ring–friendship, love and loyalty–the mission of the Claddagh Fund is to raise money for the most underfunded charities that support the vulnerable populations in our communities. Funds support organizations that champion the needs of children, veterans and those struggling with alcohol and drug abuse.
The critically-acclaimed Dropkick Murphys–Al Barr (lead vocals), Tim Brennan (guitars, accordion, whistle, vocals), Ken Casey (lead vocals, bass guitar), Jeff DaRosa (banjo, bouzouki, mandolin, harmonica, vocals), Matt Kelly (drums, vocals), James Lynch (guitar, vocals), and Scruffy Wallace (bagpipes)–are known for their complex distillation of classic punk rock, Celtic folk and American rock ‘n’ roll. The band is touring in support of its Going Out In Style CD (Born & Bred Records), which debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200 chart.
