About The Elders

Music Icon

Celtic Rockers "The Elders"...They're BACK! The Elders remain one of the top Celtic-rock bands in the U-S after 24 years because of their timeless sound. Their fans feel connected to the band because of their passion, great melodies, unique harmonies, unparalleled musicianship and strong song-writing. And that songwriting began in 1998 when two musicians moved back from L-A to Kansas City to play Irish music. Norm Dahlor and Brent Hoad, played in numerous bands but their American and Celtic-folk rock roots were calling and The Elders were born. “Well Alright Then”, their 9th studio album released on April 29, 2022, was conceived after the band retired and the country experienced a lockdown. During that time the band continued to meet, write, and sing, but never intended to record. That is, until guitarist Steve Phillips asked them to release an album in his honor. (Before Phillips passed in 2020, he recorded all of his vocals and musical parts.) “Well Alright Then”, delivers the unique story-telling the band is known for----stories of love, loyalty and Irish feistiness.
