Celtic Spirit / Bio

For over 5 years Celtic Spirit has been entertaining countless people in the Mid-Atlantic Area, bringing their combination of lively mix of Irish and Scottish music along with American folk and contemporary songwriters with a “Celtic Edge” which is their hallmark. With a vast repertoire of songs both old and new, they can entertain at just about any venue and delight their audiences both young and old alike.

Celtic Spirit features the collective talents of Terry Algier on Accordion, Whistles and Electronic Pipes, Jim Oldham on 6 and 12 String Guitar and Octave Mandolin, and Jack Rickenbach on Guitar, Tiple, Banjo and Ukulele. These three lads have been performing music since their teens, with a broad range of musical experience that shines through in each of their performances.

Their recently released CD “Down the Winding Road” features a tasteful mix of Irish, Scottish and American songs that take you on a wonderful journey from Galway, County Down, to the Highlands of Scotland, Liverpool, Maui, North Carolina, Lake Superior, back to Derry and on a memorable ride down the N17!

Celtic Spirit is continuously adding more songs for their performances and they also enjoy exploring the history and stories behind this music which shapes their repertoire. They always find a few minutes in their performance to impart some of that history as well as some of the humorous tales of their travels.

They will have your feet tapping, hands clapping and hopefully you’ll be singing along to their lively songs as they take you along on their journey Down the Winding Road.
