Beltaine is proud to release its newest album, Tilly’s Jig! This is the band’s 5th album in over a decade of performing and entertaining audiences in the Northwest and nationally.
The band continues its journey of performing traditional Irish and Scottish songs in non-traditional arrangements and instrumentation. In addition to the guitar, flute, and accordion, the hammered dulcimer is the band’s featured instrument, adding a percussive and unique melodic contribution not usually found in Celtic music.
Tilly’s Jig has both original and traditional instrumental songs as well as many famous and beloved vocal songs. There are several themes woven throughout this album: the sea, family tributes, and of course, humor!
Beltaine’s core members are John Keys on hammered dulcimer, flute and vocals, Brian Baker on guitar and vocals, Kris Chase on hammered dulcimer and marimbula, and Jamie Vandenberg on accordion.
So sit back, enjoy, and Slainte!
Beltaine performs throughout the Northwest and nationally at many venues and events including; The Highland Stillhouse, Maher’s Irish Pub, Biddy McGraws, Kelley O’Neils and O’Tooles Irish Pub in Honolulu, HI, the Portland Highland Games, The Bite of Oregon, Portland Rose Festival, Newport Celtic Music Festival, Galway Bay Celtic Music Festival, Cape Disappointment Stare Park Summer Concert Series, Pittock Mansion Holiday Music Program, and many others.
