    Celtic Cross
    Stephen TalkhouseAugust 30, 2014 8:00 PM
    161 Main Street
    Amagansett, NY 11930
    Pure pop/folk fun with Celtic trad roots from the heart of New York City... Shores of America was named the Number 1 Irish Voice Record of the Year for 2008. Mike Farragher of the Irish Voice writes “Celtic Cross is quintessential Irish Americana” and that Shores is “the soundtrack of your life set against a diverse musical back drop that includes alternative country, modern rock, traditional melodies, and playful funk.” Those who have been around Celtic music in the Northeast and in the NYC area are no strangers to this hardworking band that has been on top of the scene and on every stage since the early 90s. A brand new all-original CD is underway and due in early 2013. Celtic Cross keeps reinventing, updating and polishing one of the best festival, party and concert acts you will find in Celtic music today. Celtic Cross is a spirited seven-piece band featuring lead vocalist Kathleen Fee, a talented singer-songwriter. An animated accordion, fiddle, banjo/mandolin trio and a rock-solid bass-drums-guitar rhythm section makes for a dynamic and entertaining stage show. A family affair, Kathleen’s brothers Kenny and John are band mates and co-founders of the group. Growing up with Irish immigrant parents, the band was immersed in Irish music, dance, and tradition, yet heavily influenced by rock the result is thoughtful pop & Americana with a lively Irish trad flare. Heard frequently on Fordham University’s WFUV and SiriusXM’s “Celtic Crush” radio programs are the Celtic Cross fan faves 22, Shores of America, All Around My Hat and Don’t Fear Me Now. In addition to their original set, the band loves to cover R&B rock and country with their own special style, often interweaving them with traditional Irish tunes. The all original songwriting in Shores of America (released in 2008) explores the band’s family and musical roots growing up Irish-American or “narrowbacks” in New York City. The songwriting ranges from the intense Flight of the Earls in reverse story in the title track Shores of America, to the intensely personal Going Home, and dreamy Queens’ streetlight passion of First Kiss. The musical energy and skill of the band are especially well captured in the instrumentals Recovery and 22. After a listen, you will clearly hear that the band doesn't follow the familiar routine paths of worn-out old-school Irish covers or formulaic trad... Celtic Cross makes truely different and original pop-Celtic music. |members Kathleen Fee is the band’s lead singer-songwriter, front-woman, and driving force. An accomplished Irish Traditional singer, Kathleen’s voice ranges from silky ballads to the driving rock and pop dance songs that are the band’s hallmarks. You may even catch her dancing a step or two during a performance, showing of her champion Irish step-dancing. With writing credit for Shores of America, Who I Am, Those Were The Days, Going Home on Shores, Kathleen has established herself as one of New York’s established songwriters. Kathleen sang a sassy duet “Wedding Reel” with Black 47’s infamous front man Larry Kirwan. Kenneth Vesey is an All-Ireland Champion and eight-time North American Champion fiddle player. His eclectic style was developed in part by his instructors, Martin Mulvihill, Mary Mahon and Eileen Ivers. While a virtuoso Irish player, Kenny’s style fits right in with the country and alternative styles of the band. John Vesey, button accordionist and brother to Kenneth and Kathleen, is a three time North American Champion. John blends impeccable Celtic chops with a Cajun and downright honky-tonk style. His innovative approach to traditional Irish music is evident in his unparalleled physical style overflowing with energy. You might even catch him playing the box over his head Jimi Hendrix-style. Walter Ensor is a native of the well-known Irish stronghold, Rockaway Beach, New York. With charming vocals and versatile guitar-playing, Walter is at the heart of the Celtic Cross sound. Walter hails from a family of musicians who have influenced his unique style and knowledge of music. Walter is also an accomplished solo performer around town as well as a session player of choice. In spite of the significant Hurricane Sandy damage to Walter’s neighborhood of Rockaway, he stood on the stage with the band barely a month later in the famous NYC “Sandy Seisiuns” fundraiser concerts. Patrick Dineen, another NYC native, is the band’s bassist/keyboardist. Also providing vocals and songwriting, Pat plays a major role in the band’s signature punchy rhythmic style. He is Kathleen’s foil in interacting with the audience, often with stand-up humor. Pat has appeared with several popular NYC area bands including Tippling Way and Peter Street. Frankie McCormick on banjo and mandolin, from Tyrone, Ireland, came to America in 1986. He has 2 All-Ireland solo championship titles on banjo and mandolin as well as the coveted All-Ireland Scor Award. Frankie brings a fresh northern punch to the phrasing of the tunes and his quick wit keeps the audience howling. Frank has become quite a songwriter as well in the band’s recent work. Drummer Ryan Cavan hails from Buffalo with a deep jazz resume which took him all over the world with many notable players, and most recently the popular McCabes in the Celtic scene. Having recently joined the band, Ryan has made a big impact on the polish and arrangement flare for the band. Ryan currently makes NYC his home. Ryan is also a fantastic guitar player which adds to his significant writing contributions to the band’s new work.
