Rathkeltair blends catchy original songs with tight, driving straight-ahead rock-n-roll, while never forgetting their Celtic roots. World-class musicians from Northern Ireland, England and America playing together with incredible energy, intensity and dynamics make Rathkeltair a must-see.
"If you see only one Celtic rock band this season, make it Rathkeltair."
Review - Aurora Borealis
"Combining the fluid, quietly humorous song writing of Trevor Tanner and the mind blowing bagpipe playing of Neil Anderson, Rathkeltair is one of the best Celtic rock bands touring the festivals today."
Christopher Hivner - Amazon Reviews
"What band could make people drive over 500 miles to see them live? There are only a handful...and Rathkeltair is one of them....Rathkeltair will win you over by their sheer talent and showmanship. Bottom line: If you are looking for top-notch musicianship at your venue or festival, I highly recommend hiring this band before it is too late...they are that good!"
-Bernie Punt, Director of Sales & Marketing, Bryce Jordan Center, Penn State - LinkedIn
"Somehow this band makes it seem like whatever is going on musically is the most natural thing on earth even though this is something many long-time bands in the genre never manage to achieve. Truly ground-breaking-- Rathkeltair is really something to hear."
