Event Details

Celtibillies

Appalachian and Celtic music and dance.

GGC.JPG“A masterful work of art that transcends all musical genres.” That’s how Bluegrass Unlimited described the music of Celtibillies. Formed in 1994 as a contradance band, Celtibillies began exploring the deep rooted connections between Celtic music and the Appalachian music of their home region of southwest Virginia. Their music expanded beyond dance tunes to include a wide range of traditional Celtic and Appalachian Old-Time music and song as well as original music.

The band features Becky Barlow on hammered dulcimer, keyboard and bodhran, Jack Hinshelwood on fiddle, guitar and harmonica, Tim Sauls on banjo, bouzouki, fiddle and guitar, and Jeff Hofmann on bass. Celtibillies performances are a rousing mixture of vocal arrangements and spirited jigs, reels, waltzes, strathspeys, and breakdowns.

The Celtibillies also appreciate and strive to promote the dance traditions associated with Celtic and Appalachian music and include dancers who excel in Cape Breton, Irish, Scottish and Clogging traditions. The music of Celtibillies is an expression of love and respect for the music, dance and cultural heritage of two great traditions that are forever linked by their common roots and bonds.
