The Band

Songs for Ceilidh combines Irish, Scottish, and Canadian Maritime Celtic influences with American heartland roots and acoustic pop/rock. Their original music includes traditionally inspired Celtic melodies and modern narratives, with an emphasis on lively, upbeat rhythms. The name says it all–ceilidh [kay-lee] – a foot stomping, high energy party.
Each band member brings his own influence. Scott Price sings and plays the acoustic guitar, tin whistle, didgeridoo and harmonica. Bryan Christensen plays fiddle with a blend of American and Celtic styles, guitar, keyboard, bass and backup vocals while Jon Jasinski ties it all together with djembes, bodhran, drumset and backup vocals.

The Philosophy

With a solid repertoire of traditional Celtic classics and band originals, SFC's arrangements reflect a modern sensibility and balance of tradition and innovation. They keep every show lively, fun, and moving! Don't expect to hear “Danny Boy? or “Irish Eyes?.
“We're looking for people to enjoy themselves as much as we enjoy playing. That's what it's all about!”

The Resume

Since 2005, according to ReverbNation, SFC has become a New England favorite and regularly ranks as the #1 Celtic band in New England. Performances include The Texas Highland Games, Pipes in the Valley and Worcester Irish festivals, local pubs, town concerts, parades, private engagements, as well as radio and television appearances.
In 2009 Songs for Ceilidh released their first full length album Beneath the Waves. Highlander Radio called it “…a swell of deep-sea musical Celtic heaven…ten tracks of Celtic bliss.” Two singles off of the album originally released on a demo CD in 2008, “Jolly Rover? and “The Catch?, became most requested songs on Highlander Radio. Their second album Falling Forward, was released in March of 2017.

Bios

Scott Price:
Scott was first exposed to Celtic music in the pubs of Montreal as bands from Nova Scotia passed through to Ontario. Immediately, he fell in love with the music. Upon moving to Massachusetts and finding no bands in the Boston area that played this brand of Celtic music, he thought there needed to be one. “I never intended to form a band and yet here I am.” As a self taught musician his grounding in eclectic folk guitar and 80's Glam Rock (Yeah, he wishes!) drives his creativity leading the band into interesting combinations, directions, and influences. If he is not playing music you can find him on the curling rink where he has competed at the national level.

Jon Jasinski:
Jon was born and raised in Merrillville, Indiana and has enjoyed music from an early age. Throughout high school he played in several ensembles, including concert band, marching band, percussion ensemble, and winter drumline. Jon attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN and earned a Physics Education degree while continuing to cultivate his passion for music. Purdue Bands afforded Jon several unique musical opportunities, including performances at Carnegie Hall with the Purdue Symphonic Band, and at the Great Wall of China as Drumline Section Leader of Purdue's All American Marching Band. In addition, Jon has performed with other ensembles in the Lafayette community such as Lafayette Citizens Band and the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra. Jon combines his passions for music and education as a percussion instructor for high school drumlines and individual students. Living in Shrewsbury, Jon continues his percussive endeavors as a polish guy playing African drums in a Celtic band.

Bryan Christensen:
Bryan was raised in Fremont, Nebraska. His father made his spending money in college by playing fiddle in square dance halls and Bryan, who started studying classical violin at the age of four, picked up the bluegrass influence. In his teens he learned to play guitar, bass and piano and spent time in a couple rock bands. “I've spent 20 years looking for a band that could play 'Devil went down to Georgia' with me, and now I've found so much more!” Bryan's stylistic contributions, Blues, Country, Bluegrass and more help to round out the sound of Songs for Ceilidh.
