Our 5-piece Celtic band (also available as a trio or 6-piece band) can rock your dance party, add elegance to your wedding reception, rekindle fond memories at your loved one's memorial service, or just inspire your friends to raise their pints and sing until they fall over smiling.
Charmas performs for private parties, modern dance clubs, festivals, traditional music concerts, pub and winery shows, weddings, memorial services, and charity events. The band's instrumentation includes lead and harmony vocals, fiddle, Celtic wooden flute, low whistle, pennywhistle, guitar, standup or electric bass, acoustic and electric guitar, kit drums and/or bodhran hand drum. Solo or with the band, Great Highland Bagpipes (or quieter Scottish "session" pipes) can be added to any band show (see Gigmaster listing for bagpiper Elise MacGregor Ferrell.), as well as a solo vocalist for special moments at weddings and memorial services.
Charmas' repertoire features well-loved Irish and Scottish ballads, traditional and modern comedy songs, sea chanteys, crowd-pleasing American cover songs, modern Celtic rock covers, original rock/pop/comedy songs, and mixed-style instrumental sets of our own design.
The band is reliable, professional, easy to reach by e-mail while planning your event, and usually books its gigs from 2-months up to 1-year in advance.
If you don't already see your favorite songs on our repertoire list, we are happy to take requests (please inquire for details).

Thank you very much, Keir! Please make sure your aunt sends me the recording or printed lyrics to her poem about your mom, and I will follow through with seeing if it would make a good song for our band (even maybe with her singing it, who knows?) Best Wishes, Elise and Charmas

This really is a phenomenal Celtic band. They know their material well, and got SO many people to sing along with them! Such nice, polite, and professional entertainers. I would absolutely recommend them to someone else, as I'm also going to steal them away again in the future!

Many thanks, Billy. We are basking in your kind words. It was a real treat for us to play and sing, not only for, but also with, people who knew so much traditional music and could enthusiastically sing along with us. We will greatly look forward to joining you again. Best Wishes, Charmas

Great...sorry guys couldn't say Thanks earlier.... it was amazing. I contacted charms just a few days before my husbands birthday . They learned my husband's favorite songs and were awesome. It was the highlight of the party and will remember it forever. Thanks for your efforts and making our evening memorable.

Many thanks, Kanupriya. You were a lovely hostess in your beautiful dress, and your husband's disbelieving expression when we appeared at the door showed that you have mastered the art of surprise! We're looking forward to seeing you again next year. Best Wishes, Charmas
