Celtica Nova (Rescheduled to Fall 2022)
Celtica is bringing their high energy, bagpipe driven, celtic hard rock act to the Hudson Valley.
As an international ensemble, the band combines the powerful sounds of the Great Highland Bagpipes with a powerful rock band and a masterly played violin that expands their unique style with symphonic-epic melodies.
Influences include Irish Folk, Symphonic Metal and Scottish traditions.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day from the Highlands to the Hudson Valley with the hottest Celtic Rock Band on the planet, fall of 2022 (date to be determined). Join us at the Majed J. Nesheiwat Convention Center (formerly Mid-Hudson Civic Center) for
an evening of high energy, pyrotechnic, bag-pipe driven performances that will leave you with chills.
The show kicks off with local Celtic-Punk band, Alternative Ulster. Alternative Ulster hails from New York State’s
Catskill’s region as a five-member Celtic-Punk band who has been reviewed as being the loudest and proudest.
Their energetic, rough-n-ready, Irish-American is the perfect fit for a night of Celtic pride and music.
Celtica Nova is an international ensemble featuring pipers Duncan Knight and Jan Espie from Scotland, violinist Aya
Georgieva from Bulgaria, drummer Tom Cadek and bassist Harold Weinkum from Austria. The majestic sound of
the Great Highland Bagpipe soars above a powerful rock band, the masterly played violin expands the unique style
with symphonic-epic melodies. Influences of Irish Folk, Symphonic Metal and Scottish tradition merge with the
energetic Celtic Rock music, full of lust of life. This sound, as international as the musicians – hailing from Scotland,USA, Bulgaria and Austria – and the spectacular show guarantee a concert no one will ever forget.
Celtica Nova has recently been awarded International Artist of the Year during the Australian Celtic Music Awards.
