"The California Celts have an onslaught of a show"

The California Celts have an onslaught of a show, playing everything from their classics like 'Slow Down Sister' and 'Love is Stronger Than Pride' to obscure and infectious Hibernian reels.
Jamie Winpenny, Honolulu Weekly, March 15-21, 2006 - Honolulu Weekly

"The California Celts are returning ..."

“Every set starts off with a Celtic parade that features bagpipes, brass and drums. From the street to the stage, the pipe processional is absorbed by warmth of the rhythm section. The Cali Celts then launch into their extensive repertoire of songs including Scottish jigs, Irish standards, Celtic originals and songs of California.” Aug 12 -19, 2010 - The New Times, San Luis Obispo

The Cali Celts music draws from the worldwide catalog of Celtic, Nautical and Island music. Their style can hold a crowd, young and old.
Their music reflects this in subtle tones of Reggae, Bluegrass, Mexicano and Rock. The California Celts are a unique group of minstrels that pay homage to the Scotch-Irish musical thread and its journey from the Old World to The Americas and beyond. Hear the Appalachian influence as it seamlessly weaves its way to the California songs of the 49ers. The California Celts are a one of a kind experience........
