Rascal’s History 2011-2014

The first part of our mini-series "Rascal's History" is available on YouTube! Come with us on a journey into the past.

About the band

Rascal’s Corner are from Krefeld. With a lot of shows in recent years and much time spent on tweaking the Rascals sound, they have become a live band which so far always managed to inspire their audience. They combine elements of Irish folk, country, and rock and roll to a wonderfully boppy folk-rock mix and therefore are able to enthrall their audience at any gig!

After the first record "Bridge over the Labyrinth" (2014) and the EP "The Train is rolling" (2016) they are on the road again with their new album "Just That Time".
