Celtic music supergroup The Celts are particularly well-known for their themed shows. Consisting of some of the best known and most sought after musicians in their genre, their shows are true multimedia productions. Drawing heavily on the back-story, they entertain and amuse the audience as they delve into the true stories and anecdotes of the subject.

The Real Robbie Burns, better known as Scotland’s bard, was a truly fascinating and even controversial character. While his memory has been mainly confined to once a year Burns’ Suppers, few of the attendees really know much about the man, let alone understand the few pieces of his work that get an airing on these occasions. The Celts have been quoted as saying that they are surprised no-one has made a movie about Burns – there is more than enough material there, and it’s really quite the story!

Against a backdrop of over 500 beautiful images of Scotland, the show is an entertaining mix of music, song, humour and storytelling. The stellar band also includes Daniel Carr, former World Champion Highland Dancer, who also provides some jaw-dropping bagpipe-playing. Daniel is a full-time instructor at the PEI School of Piping and Dancing.

Watch out for The Real St. Patrick coming in March – the real story about Ireland’s Patron Saint, and the reason for one of the best known feast-days world-wide.

The Celts have gone down in the history books as the first ever live band to play at the Canadian National Highland Dance championships where they performed in front of over 10,000 people. In 2018 they have been invited to play at the US Nationals in Pennsylvania.
