Celtic folk music distilled into a right rant with awesome rhythmic drive. Speiread: Wine Country's Celtic band for your Irish, Scottish, Renaissance or Maritime themed entertainment. Speiread have appeared at various venues, including the Paragon Room of the prestigious Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, CA; the Monkey House in Berkeley; Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, CA; Nicholson Ranch Winery.
The fiddler, Nanette Fynan, gives the traditional tunes a contemporary flair. With Bruce Maxwell, soloist with San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers, Scottish smallpipes wail out the soulful melodies so characteristic of the Irish and Scottish music tradition.
They make a tight group, playing old Irish pub standards as well as great tunes from the emerging artists of the Celtic music scene of Scotland, Ireland and Cape Breton. While their sound is unique, it can be compared to Mollys Revenge, Blazin Fiddles, Banshee In the Kitchen and The American Rogues. Try out this exciting band, Speiread, for your venue and find your audience clapping and stomping with the sheer joy of it. Fiddle, bagpipe, and guitar blend in such a way as to make your wedding, party or corporate event a peak experience with mood altering music.
