Ye be needin' an Irish band? Irish folk music distilled into a right rant with awesome rhythmic drive. Dance manager Lauren Ayers wrote:"...dancing to such wonderful music lifted our spirits into the stratosphere." Wine Country's Celtic band for your Irish, Scottish, Renaissance or Maritime themed entertainment. A contemporary take on Scottish and Irish folk music distilled into a right rant with awesome rhythmic drive. Fiddle, bagpipe, guitar and keyboard blend to present the music of the Celtic lands. Your wedding, party or corporate event will be a peak experience with our mood altering music. Sometimes when the Plaid Menagerie Celtic band plays, you feel like the whole room is swaying to the music. Imagine the dance music of your Irish and Scottish ancestors channeled forward in time to be enjoyed by audiences today, music that transcends generations and time. The fiddler, Nanette Fynan, continues the tradition of hosts of fiddlers through the ages. Ben Fynan, keeps everyone guessing what's coming next with his tasteful mix of traditional Celtic piano and contemporary rhythmic diversity. The compelling rhythm will drive a dance like a locomotive. They make a tight group, playing old Irish pub standards as well as great tunes from the emerging artists of the Celtic music scene of Scotland, Ireland and Cape Breton. While their sound is unique, it can be compared to Molly's Revenge, Blazin' Fiddles, Banshee In the Kitchen and The American Rogues.

Plaid Menagerie played during the ceremony and cocktail hour of my wedding and all our guests were very impressed and loved their performance. Nanette was so helpful and easy to work with. The group really tailored their performance to what we were looking for and offered a lot of great ideas when we weren't sure exactly which songs we wanted at certain points. They even went the extra mile and wore Renaissance clothing for our wedding to fit our theme. They are such a talented family, playing a wide variety of instruments. They even brought this enormous recorder looking instrument like one would have played in the Renaissance era. The bagpipes were awesome too!
