The recording of 'Celtic Fire' is officially complete... mixed, mastered and ready to send off for duplication! Two years in the making, the new Celtica CD shows a distinctively different side of the band from the first CD, 'Labyrinth Walk'.
'Labyrinth Walk' was a contemplative excursion into the softer side of traditional Irish music recorded by Celtica's core duo of Tammera Lane and Tim Dooley, including Clancy Clements on whistles and bagpipes. 'Celtic Fire' is decidedly more upbeat, with Tammera on hammered dulcimer, piano/keys and field organ, Tim on guitars, bouzouki, mandolin and bodhran, nicely spiced with the incendiary fiddle of Carolyn Dutton, plus the traditional flavors of bagpipe and ...whistles by Clancy Clements, with hurdy gurdy and various percussion elements by Tom Lozano.
The CD was produced and engineered by Jeff Foster (who also played guitar, bass and drums) and recorded at Jeff's StringDancer Recording Studio in Brown County, Indiana.
We're all proud of the finished product, and eager to share it with our fans. Mark your calendars for our combination St. Patrick's Day celebration / CD Release Party coming up on Friday, March 17 in the Town Hall banquet room of the Brown County Inn. Tickets are $10.00. Seating is limited. This concert will feature all six members of Celtica! Come join us for an awesome night of live Celtic music!
