Sean Heely Celtic Band

Experience the magical music of Scotland and Ireland with the Seán Heely Celtic Band. The band features U.S National Scottish Fiddle champion and Gaelic singer Seán Heely; acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and All-Ireland singing champion Kevin Elam; bouzouki and bass player Beth Patterson; acclaimed percussionist Lucas Ashby; and percussive dancer Agi Kovacs.

The Seán Heely Celtic Band presents a groove and drive that gives audiences of all ages the irresistible urge to move. The band performs ancient, soaring melodies from Scotland, Ireland, and beyond, while original compositions and modern tunes are fused in seamlessly. Powerful vocal harmonies exist in their ever-growing song repertoire, which features Scots Gaelic (Gàidhlig) songs, ballads, sea shanties, pub songs and more from the rich Celtic folk tradition.

They have performed in venues such as the Kennedy Center, Strathmore Music Center and Hylton Performing Arts Center. They also headlined the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, Virginia Scottish games, and the Niel Gow Festival in Scotland in 2023.
