Celtica performs Irish music, to be sure, to be sure...
Celtica band members have been performing Irish music for quite a few years now. Their songlist includes many olde favourites like Whiskey in the Jar, traditional ballads and more contemporary Irish songs that have now become "irish standards" from Van Morrison and The Pogues.
Professional musicians who really love their work! Peformances include jigs, reels, waltz's and more.
Weddings where there is a touch of the Irish...are their speciality, many have said Celtica do great knees-up weddings. They have a very extensive songlist for weddings, formal or informal.
Celtica historically have performed almost anywhere and continue to do so at: Pubs, Clubs, St Patrick's day celebrations, wineries like Kellybrook and Tokar, festivals, corporate events, fund raisers and private functions.
Celtica will "call" and teach bush dances and all band members sing (with great harmonies)
