The Celtic Social Club
Sunday 11th September⋄ ⋄ Main Stage
Five years after their inception, THE CELTIC SOCIAL CLUB are still thriving upon their traditional heritage, but also widening their influences to the richness of other genres and cultures. THE CELTIC SOCIAL CLUB have been pursuing a fascinating journey in the modernization of traditional tunes from Brittany, Ireland, Scotland and Asturia, to make a few. On their third LP, the band, boosted by the arrival of new lead vocalist from Ireland, Dan Donnelly, have never sounded so tight and powerful, nor so relevant and fresh.
Recorded and produced in France, then mixed in the US by Manu Masko and NewYorker Ariel Borujow (Black Eyed Peas, Cee Lo), these ten new tracks demonstrate the idiosyncratic synergy between tradition, songwriting and live energy. THE CELTIC SOCIAL CLUB are forging a new way to bridge the gap between Celtic, rock and pop music with such compelling authority. After previous shows in USA, China, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Turkey, the Czech Republic and Algeria, new live dates are coming up in and the UK. Traditional yet progressive, original yet fast becoming a new sensation at venues throughout the world. THE CELTIC SOCIAL CLUB are a vital link between the past and the future of music.
Their third studio album is due for release on april 26th and is set to exceed the already successful and critically acclaimed predecessors.
Line up features Dan Donnelly (The Wonder Stuff, The Levellers), Manu Masko (Red Cardell, DMFB), Ronan Le Bars (Héritage des celtes, Johnny Hallyday), Goulven Hamel (Cathal Coughlan, Miossec), Pierre Stephan (Meaelstrom), Richard Puaud (Alexandre Varlet, DFMB) and Mathieu Pequeriau (Blue Monkeys, DFMB)
