Blackthorn is a Vancouver, Canada-based celtic folk group whose repertoire celebrates the traditional music of Ireland, Scotland and England as well as Canadian folk music - including originals.
From lovely ballads to boisterous sing-along pub songs, and from beautiful Celtic instrumental airs to the driving rhythms of Irish and Scottish jigs and reels - Blackthorn's repertoire encompasses them all.
Over 14 years of professional playing makes Blackthorn "Vancouver's most experienced and seasoned Celtic band".
Blackthorn has just released their 3rd CD, "Singing the Travels". Their previous recordings are "Market Town", released in 1996 and "The Dark Island", released in 1992. Blackthorn is also featured on SFU Pipe Band's "Do Mo Chara Maith" album.
