Blarney Castle was formed in 2014 by six Western Michigan University music students. It was the brainchild of Joel Myers, a native of Chelsea, MI, who gained his Irish fiddling skills performing with the Chelsea House Orchestra.

Since its formation, Blarney Castle has performed sophisticated arrangements and original sets of Celtic music at festivals around the state and beyond. The new single, "Silhouettes Against The Soil," to be released on October 14, was written by Myers. Myers, keyboardist Lukas Stanley, and singer/flutist E.J. Schubkegel visited WMUK to preview the new song.
