MAIN STAGE PERFORMERS
We are proud to feature the following performers on the Main Stage at the Celtic Harvest Festival on September 20th, 2014 at the Verde Valley School in Sedona, AZ.
David Brewer and Rebecca Lomnicky Scotland’s Music, United, David Brewer and Rebecca Lomnicky each have spent copious amounts of time delving into the traditions of their respective instruments, living and studying in the highlands of Scotland, and have forged their duo in the spirit of merging these two similar but very different worlds to create a new seamless sound which is both kinetic and full of passion.
Tramor (Overseas) is the new traditional music project of John Good. John is well known through out the West, South Midwest and in his native Wales as a multi-insrumentalist, Welsh piper, singer/songwriter, composer and poet. Veteran of many Celtic festivals and concerts, including Estes Park, Chicago, San Diego and Denver, he brings the subtly different flavor of traditional Welsh music to the stage. John will be performing with mandolin virtuoso Billy Parker.
The Glendale Pipe Band The Glendale Police Pipes and Drums was started in the Spring of 2002. The band’s primary function has been to perform for functions of the Glendale, Arizona, Police Department and to be an integral part of the department’s honor guard. Additionally, the band has played for many civic functions for the City of Glendale including the Fire Safely Parade, the City of Glendale Police Officer’s Memorial & the 9-11 Memorial.
Karl Jones- A native of Dublin, Ireland, the now Sedona-based singer/songwriter has regularly appeared on Irish Television’s Late Late Show, as well as in Dublin music venues, and was a founding member of the U@-inspired rock band and Mixed Up World. In the 1980′s, Jones went on to become an accomplished solo artist, conjuring comparisons with such Irish recording artists as Christy Moore, Van Morrison and Paul Brady. Since his arrival in the United States, Jones has become a Southwestern Celtic fixture, touring the Irish pub circuit throughout Arizona and New Mexico.
The Bracken School of Irish Dance - A native of Tullamore, County Offaly, Ireland, Thomas Bracken began Irish step-dancing at the age of four. He is a recipient of many regional, national and world medals as both a dancer and a teacher. A four-time Worlds qualifier, Alexis Hodel brings her background in kineseology, psychology, and dance to bring out the best in our students. Watch a recent Slideshow of the Dancers
