Keltricity is a Celtic-world band that features traditional, contemporary and eclectic Celtic-influenced music from Ireland, Cape Breton, Scotland, England, Brittany, New England and French Canada. The five-member group is comprised of accomplished musicians with backgrounds in various musical genres, from traditional Irish bands to Scottish and New England contra dance bands, to classical, rock and jazz. The variety of these experiences now converge to provide some of the most innovative music around.
Instrumentation consists of accordion (Laurel Fuson), mandolin (Joe Burch), fiddle (Anna Blanton), vocals and keyboard (Caroline Yeager) and guitar (Henry Austin). Clear, crisp vocals characteristic of the genre are presented as solos and two-part harmonies. Together these sounds present fresh musical perspectives on a respected tradition.
Keltricity has performed within a broad range of venues including some of the area’s most prominent annual outdoor festivals, heritage day celebrations, holiday shows, state park programs, radio broadcasts, benefit concerts, wedding receptions, traditional English and contra dances in the region and, of course, at regional pubs. They are part of the Kentucky Arts Council’s Performing Artists roster, reflecting excellence in performances. A Keltricity performance is always full of new and exciting musical surprises in arrangements of songs and tunes that have become favorites of avid Celtic traditionalists as well as eclectic music lovers.
