Celtic Rock

Presented by Lehto and Wright.

Celtic Rock is a fusion of any of a number of styles of rock music with traditional and/or popular music originating in those parts of the United Kingdom whose cultures derive from the Celts, the pre-Christian inhabitants of that part of the world. Celtic music is know for its jigs, reels, and both sad and happy airs, and its melodic structure melds well with various forms of rock music, from soulful ballads to high-energy dance music. Well-known bands and artists who have combined these elements in their music include Gaelic Storm, Horslips, Baka Beyond, Boiled in Lead, Pentangle, Afro-Celt Sound System, Equation, Lindisfarne, Felonious Bosch, Van Morrison, Steeleye Span, and Jethro Tull among many more, and the popularity of their music transcends the boundaries between the Pagan community and the folk, rock, fusion, and world music audiences around the world. The members of Lehto & Wright will discuss past, present and future trends in Celtic Rock, and demonstrate/perform some elements of the genre.
