Podcast: E124 Finny McConnell of The Mahones


E124 Finny McConnell (The Mahones)

Singer & songwriter, Finny McConnell, joins us on this episode of The Adamantium Podcast. We discuss his 30-year journey fronting Celtic punk band, The Mahones, and his decision to put out his first solo record, The Dark Streets of Love, this late into his career. We talk about how The Mahones formed by chance, his early career fear of being dubbed “fake Irish,” playing in a band with Gord Downie at his Dad’s Irish pub in Kingston, the strangest gigs he’s been offered, and how it came to be that their song “Paint The Town Red” was used in the final fight scene of the Oscar-winning film, The Fighter.
