Celtic Heartbeat

Celtic Heartbeat are a 6 piece modern folk band. Mixing traditional folk songs with some of our own music. 6 voices and a multitude of instruments mixing the traditional with a hint of electric modernity.

You won’t want to keep still. You can dance, move in your seat and join in the chorus. 

We love to play and that just about sums it up
