Entertainment for 2014
MAIN STAGE PERFORMERS
Were 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.
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-instrumentalist, 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. Along with friends like mandolin virtuoso Billy Parker, a Tramor show is an event not to be missed. Watch Tramor in a recent Video.
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 Irish music festivals, and was a founding member of the U2-inspired rock band Mixed up World. In the 1980s, 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. Watch a a recent Video of Karl Jones
