About Celtic Cats
Celtic Cats are folk rock mixed with traditional celtic melodies, and jazz improvisation mixed with classical interpretations for the jazz, blues, bluegrass, newgrass, celtic, Irish and folk rock tunes in its repertoire. Acoustically oriented, this blend of neo-classical blues, layered with whimsical vocals, summons the ancient troubador in all of us. With influences ranging from Jethro Tull, Bela Fleck, David Grisman and New Grass Revival to Turlough O'Carolan, J.S. Bach, John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Paul Simon, the Celtic Cats are a quartet comprised of flute, cello, guitar/vocals and drums that performs music of many cultures and styles.
