Poor Man's Gambit

  • McCarthy's Red Stag Pub 534 Main Street Bethlehem PA 18018 (map)

Poor Man’s Gambit is an energetic trio of Celtic artists composed of Corey Purcell,  Genevieve Gillespie, and Dylan Richardson.


The trio was initially formed as a pick-upband for the 2015 St. Pat's Season, but quickly realized that their combination of musical styles was worth pursuing as a more permanent venture. Enjoying quick success, the group was booked at all of the regional festivals, and within six months they were headlining a tour of England and Ireland. 

The band's first album - 'Higher Notes & Anecdotes' - was released in September of 2015, and was embraced as a "genre-bending blend of traditional Celtic and American folk music". 

 Currently based out of Pennsylvania, USA, Poor Man's Gambit is actively booking performances at Irish and Scottish festivals in the U.S. andEurope, as well as house concerts, weddings, and listening clubs.
