Capital Celtic is one of the highest rated Celtic bands in the entire mid-Atlantic region, with more than 50, five-star ratings in the past year alone. Capital Celtic has more 5-star reviews and bookings in the past year on Gig Masters than any other Celtic trio in the area. From DC, Maryland and Virginia, to PA, NJ and DE, we play throughout more than 15,800 square miles of the Chesapeake watershed.
With more than 50 live performances in the past year, Capital Celtic has opened for Gaelic Storm, performed for 3 weeks this year at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, on national television, at major Irish festivals, weddings and even backyard bar-b-ques, and even performed for US Congressmen on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. Capital Celtic is the hardest working Celtic trio in the area, yet affordable enough for nearly any private party budget. We're young, energetic and enthusiastic performers striving to make your wedding, private or public event as unique and special as you are!
In addition to wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, receptions and rehearsal dinners, we're frequently asked to perform at house parties, adult birthdays, graduation, promotion, and retirement parties; baptisms and wakes, Irish pubs, wineries and festivals throughout the mid-Atlantic region, keeping us in close touch with the local Irish community. We've been featured in local and national publications, and were even featured recently on a nationwide travel television program's St. Patrick's Day special. We perform for the Ancient order of the Hibernians, the Ballyshaners, and for the Free Masons, among other special interest groups.
We are a Celtic trio playing traditional Irish jigs and reel sets, as well as popular pub songs and ballads made famous by groups like The Dubliners, Chieftains and the Pogues. We can tailor our mix to be all instrumental jigs and reels, or a mix with pub songs. We play fiddle, flute, tin whistle, mandolin, banjo, harmonica, and acoustic guitar, or any subset, with both male and female vocals for popular Irish pub songs. We will also play popular cover songs as appropriate and requested.
We play from 45 minutes to several hours, any mix between Irish Traditional Music, soft Irish ballads such as Danny Boy and Fields of Athenry, to the raucous sing-along pub songs such as Whiskey in Jar, Molly Malone, 7 Drunken Nights, Wild Rover, Irish Rover, etc. If you're looking for a little variety, we'll even throw in a selection of cover songs (but with our own Irish twist!).
We always strive for the right mix and balance for our audiences, whether all adults or a mix of all ages. We can get a crowd to sing along and get our listeners to their feet to enjoy the beautiful music we perform.
Here are just a few of the 50+ reviews we've earned in the past year alone:
FIVE STARS! Paige E. on July 6, 2016 - Capital Celtic recently played at a wedding celebration, which the bride and groom were from Ireland. They did an excellent job of meeting their needs and learning their special song requests. Despite the heat, it turned out to be a perfect day with AWESOME music played by Capital Celtic.
FIVE STARS! Susan D. on June 26, 2016 - We happened to see Capital Celtic at Clydes during St. Patrick's Day. Their music really made the night. All are very talented musicians. Saw them again at Tally Ho as the warm up band for Gaelic Storm. A pleasant surprise and they got the house going!
FIVE STARS! Patrick D. on June 1, 2016 - Wow! All I can say is WOW! This band was great and they knew just how to cater their amazing talents and music to match the setting. They were right on time and very professional. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.
FIVE STARS! John R. on May 29, 2016 - Was more than pleased hiring this band to play traditional IRISH MUSIC .they had a tough crowd ( family and friends) of first generation NY Irish who were well entertained and made the evening a success! Will definitely hire them again.
FIVE STARS! Sean M. on May 27, 2016 - Capital Celtic have been playing as apart of the Kennedy Center's IRELAND 100 Festival and they have been nothing short of phenomenal!
