OCEAN Celtic is a quartet featuring key member from the cutting-edge Celtic-fusion band OCEAN Orchestra. Based in Maryland, they are known for electrifying jigs and reels, soaring vocals and otherworldly airs, steeped in both deep scholarship and quirky humor. Jannifer Cutting, protegee of folk revival pioneer A.L. Lloys and Library of Congress ethnomusicologist, is a celebrated bandleader who founded several WAMMIE award-winning bands including The New St. George. Lisa Moscatiello has a voice that Billboard described as “one of the most gorgeous vocal instruments in all of folk-tinged pop”; she has sung with several bands including Ceoltoiri and Whirligig. Balladeer Stephen Winick, a Library of Congress folklorist with a melodious voice and a penchant for sea shanties, studied with legendary Irish singer Frank Harte. And multi-champion Scottish fiddler Andrew Dodds of the acclaimed group Iona rounds out this diverse and lively band. Together, they combine award-winning original songs, fiery fiddle tunes, and innovative arrangements of obscure traditional tunes… a signature blend they call “Celtic Music for Ancient Moderns.”
