From the venue:
Top Irish musicians have united with the finest Nashville players to create the new sound and energy of The Nashville Celts. The Nashville Celts perform a fresh hybrid of what they call Irish Americana music which combines their own rootsy originals and tight vocal harmonies with Irish Trad. Yet, TNC purposely has many genre influenences from retro disco to bluegrass to California country so as to not limit their creativity. The foundation of their music is in their strong songwriting, vocals, and Irish instrumentation i.e., uilleann pipes and bodhran with 5 string banjo, mandolin, and dobro.
The Nashville Celts are singer/fiddler Maggie Lander; Ric Blair on vocals, guitar, piano, bodhran; Dubliner Patrick D’Arcy (U2, Sting, Josh Groban) on Uilleann pipes, whistles, mandolin; Fiachra O’Regan from Connemara, Ireland, on uilleann pipes/whistles/tenor banjo; and lastly Bruce Hornsby, Mumford & Sons sideman Matt Menefee on 5 string banjo/mandolin/dobro and vocals.
