Celtic Flames is an exciting 24 piece mixed music group based in Galway with members ranging in ages from 6 to 60. They play and perform a quality eclectic mix of traditional Irish music, song and dance fused with a more contemporary idiom.
Formed originally as a 10 piece group in 2011, it has grown to include the top young talent to emerge from the West of Ireland in recent years and their mission is to entertain! The group uses 15 different musical instruments to deliver a unique and vibrant sound, their versatile world champion dancers perform the full dynamic range of Irish dancing including light, heavy, set, sean-nos and twig dancing while a diverse variety of singers perform a seductive hybrid of rousing traditional ballads and modern classics from artists like Adele, Bob Dylan and Mumford and Sons.
Their atmospheric show generates a brilliant and energetic night’s entertainment suitable for all ages. The group toured England in 2014 and played to full and enthusiastic audiences in beautiful theatres from Birmingham to Wakefield to London and have just returned from a tour of the east coast of the United States in October 2016.
Celtic Flames’ second CD ‘From the Attic to Blue Skies’ is due for release shortly.
