Drawing on the rich repertoire of East Coast Celtic tradition of intricate instrumentals, sea shanties, Irish and Scottish songs, and original compositions, Celtic Rant have forged a polished sound around the guitar, fiddle, pipes, mandolin, and excitingly robust vocal harmonies. They have been performing in festivals and clubs throughout Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and PEI and have been building a steady base since 2006 – the year the band started.
They recorded the debut “Celtic Rant” and follow up recording “Encore” with producer Don Chapman. The newest CD “A Clancy Rantcy” is a tribute to the legendary Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem. “A Clancy Rantcy” takes Celtic Rant into exciting new territory.
Celtic Rant consists of Victor Fraser on vocals, guitar, tenor banjo and fiddle, Rob Wigle on vocals, guitar, mandolin and bouzouki, and Rob Greene, who also does vocals and plays bass guitar, fiddle and pipes.
