On Saturday, February 9 the Church of the Holy Spirit on Vashon Island welcomes the band Keltoi in a concert of Celtic music to celebrate the feast of Saint Bridget and the coming of Spring! Keltoi’s spirited interpretations of Scottish and Irish dance music and soulful vocal harmonies are innovative, entertaining, and uplifting. Ranging from the fiery to the poignant, Keltoi’s music reflects the passion and experience of its members. Bill Woods has written four books on the bodhrán and folk percussion, is in great demand as a teacher, and also plays in the band Iona Abbey. Fiddler Brandon Vance has garnered premier awards for Scottish fiddling, enjoys a career as a Baroque and contemporary violinist, and holds an M.M. degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music. Cameron St. Louis’ driving and percussive flute playing draws inspiration from North Connaught flutists Packie Duignan and Patsy Hanly and his singing style evokes the Stan Rogers and “sean nos” songs he heard growing up. Guitarist David Rivers is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, has played guitar with Abby Mae and the Homeschool Boys, Irish fiddler Erin Hennesse, and is an assistant pastor at Calvary Chapel in Sequim, Wa. Rich Hill has been teaching and singing in Scottish Gaelic since 1989, is a founder of Slighe nan Gaidheal and Féis Seattle, and is also well-known in Seattle’s early music scene.
Please welcome Keltoi to Vashon and join them on February 9 for an evening of foot-tapping tunes and songs from the heart of Gaeldom!”
