Celtic Heartbeat

Celtic Heartbeat are a 6 piece modern folk band. Mixing traditional folk songs with some of our own music. 6 voices and a multitude of instruments mixing the traditional with a hint of electric modernity.

You won’t want to keep still. You can dance, move in your seat and join in the chorus. 

We love to play and that just about sums it up

Great to be playing again

Many thanks to Duke’s Wine Bar and The Shabbington Camp Out for having us to play.

So looking forward to many more gigs and recording our second album in January. 



Like most live bands we have had our gigs  cancelled or re-arranged at least until June 2021. If you want to listen to Celtic Heartbeat our CD is available from the website and we can be streamed on Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, etc. Fingers crossed we will see you at Towersey Festival at the end of August.


“The Stories Behind the Songs” Blending music, harmony, images and film the band will transport you back to a time of exploration, immigration, shipwrecks, hardship and the celebration of life.

This unique show will have you singing along and tapping your feet while learning about where these old and new songs are from and what they mean to the band.
