Default Your favorite Celtic rock/pop band?

So right now, who is the most favorite Celtic rock/pop (?) band that most of you would love to see at your next Highland festival?

For a festival-sized act, you can't beat Glengarry Bhoys. If you haven't heard of them, check them out.

The Rogues are good. http://www.therogues.com/

Red Hot Chili Pipers are also good. https://rhcp.scot/

I would like to see the Wicked Tinkers http://www.wickedtinkers.com/ come east and play some shows on the other side of the country. I miss seeing them since I moved out of California a while back.

Might I suggest some new blood?

Rathmore was formed in 2017 by former members of The Killdares and have kept trad-inspired celtic rock going in Dallas/Fort Worth.

They perform a bevy of originals along with some well-chosen covers from other celtic rock bands and... other sources

They played Woodland Games last year and will be back this year. Lot's of fun. My band Piper's Folly tried hard to get on one of the side stages at the games but they already had all the music booked. https://www.facebook.com/PipersFolly/

That is great to know. My daughter is planning to go to Woodland this year with family and friends. I will pass the word.

Hope to catch your band in a show someday soon!

Cheers,

Ben

There are a lot of good options out there. I'll second that the Wicked Tinkers are very entertaining. Plus Aaron is a very nice guy.
