The Celtic Social Club
After a first stage appearance in front of a 50 000 crowd at French festival "Les Vieilles Charrues" in July and a debut album in 2014, THE CELTIC SOCIAL CLUB have been playing all over in Europe and around the world (France, USA, China, Switzerland, Germany, Turkey, Algeria...) with an emblematic concert at Central Park, NYC in October 2016. Within those two years, the band has transformed into a popular, frontierless, mashup, live powerhouse
Striking a perfect and energetic balance between tradition, rock, music, reggae, dubstep, and hip-hop, their repertoire is a fresh take on ancient Celtic melodies from Brittany, Ireland, Scotland, and Asturias.
Based on the same concept as the Buena Vista Social Club and the New Orleans Social Club, the group was created by drummer and producer Manu Masko. Comprised of Scottish singer, Jimme O’Neill (The Silencers), traditional Breton music virtuosos, Ronan Le Bars (Uilleann Pipe) and Pierre Stephan (Violin), Richard Puaud on the base, Mathieu Péquériau on the harmonica, Jean-Pierre Riou (Red Cardell) on the banjo, mandoline, the group came out with an unprecedented album that is as modern as it is roots.
