Cé was formed in spring 2004 by three multi-instrumentalists: Asher Gray and Devin McCabe, formerly of Anam Rí, and Randy Gosa, formerly of St. Brendan's Voyage. The Irish word, Cé, translates to the English word, "quay", a dock or wharf, a fitting title for a band based in Milwaukee. Cé plays traditional and contemporary Celtic music, including tunes composed by all three members of the band.
Asher Gray (flute, whistle, bouzouki, bodhrán)
Asher has been playing traditional Irish music for 10 years and was a founding member of the Milwaukee group, Anam Rí. As well as winning various competitions such as the Midwest Fleadh Cheoil throughout the U.S. Asher was also the recipient of the Ed Ward Scholarship for music in 2000. Asher currently resides in Milwaukee and is pursuing an art and technology degree at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Devin McCabe (fiddle, concertina, whistle)
Devin began playing piano at the age of 5, studying classical music until he became interested in traditional Irish music about 9 years ago, adding fiddle, concertina, whistle and other instruments over the years. He has perfect pitch, allowing him to amasse a large repertoire of several thousand tunes. Currently, Devin is studying Mathematics and English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Randy Gosa (tenor banjo, guitar, snare)
Randy played in various Milwaukee-based groups, including St. Brendan's Voyage, before joining Cé. He has played many different styles of music, including traditional Irish for approximately 10 years.
