New York Celtic Band 1

This New York Celtic Band latest CD was named the Number 1 Irish Voice Record of the Year for 2008. Mike Farragher of the Irish Voice writes that this band is “quintessential Irish Americana” and that their new release is “the soundtrack of your life set against a diverse musical back drop that includes alternative country, modern rock, traditional melodies, and playful funk.” Those who have been around Celtic music in the Northeast and in the NYC area are no strangers to this band.

This New York Celtic Band is a spirited seven-piece band featuring the lead vocalist, a talented singer-songwriter. An animated accordion, fiddle, banjo/mandolin trio and a rock-solid bass-drums-guitar rhythm section makes for a dynamic and entertaining stage show. A family affair, her brothers are band mates and founders of the group. Growing up with Irish immigrant parents, the band was immersed in Irish music, dance, and tradition, yet heavily influenced by rock & roll on the radio; the result is thoughtful pop & Americana with a lively Irish flare.
