LIVE MUSIC @ SCOTFEST 2022

WHO’S BACK, AND WHO’S NEW!

CHECK OUT OUR GREAT 2022 LINEUP!

SCOTROCK STAGE

Presented by Bud Light

Welcoming back the fantastic CELTICA!

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. Fiery torches on the bagpipes and burning drumsticks, thundering against huge drums, create a captivating atmosphere; flames, shooting out of the instruments, entertain audiences worldwide.

Celtica conquered their fans by storm at more than 450 performances in Europe – from the legendary Wacken-Festival in northern Germany to southern Spain, and at numerous US- and Canada- tours from New York to San Francisco, from Florida up New England, from Alaska to Hawaii. Their music videos inspire 6 million viewers on Youtube, and still counting.

“CELTICA is one of the best 10 Live-Shows I have ever seen in my life!”

Suzanne Lee Barnes, Booking for European Harley-Davidson Bike Week

“Celtica is THE new band on the international Celtic music scene!”

Gall Mc Clellan, US concert promoter

Recently awarded “International Celtic Artist of the Year” (ACMA)

Please give a warm Oklahoma welcome to the SCREAMING ORPHANS!

Screaming Orphans are a band that defies an easy musical style pigeonhole and their high-energy masterful fusion of pop and folk takes you on an exhilarating musical journey.

Screaming Orphans, a genre-breaking, chart-topping all sister band from Ireland, are known worldwide for their award-winning sound, combining their original pop songs with a unique take on traditional Irish music. From an early age, the Diver sisters performed with their mother Kathleen Fitzgerald (a well-known céilí singer in Ireland) and when they hit their teenage years, they formed their own Celtic pop band, Screaming Orphans, which led to a signing by WarnerMusic UK.

The band are renowned for their trademark spine-tingling four part harmony which has led to many collaborations on recordings with artists such as Sinéad O’Connor, Martin Furey, Baaba Maal, Afro Celt Sound System, Peter Gabriel and Joni Mitchell. The band continues to tour and play extensively across America, Canada and Europe.

“If you’re looking for something different, light and fresh, and full of musical thrills, meet the Screaming Orphans. ” 

Philadelphia RH Magazine

“The sisters revisit their roots with stunning results.”

“Delightful, captivating and formidable…” 

THAT MAG

Welcoming back fan favorites FLATFOOT 56!

Playing a positive-natured brand of hardcore-tinged Celtic punk, Flatfoot 56 has been unleashing itself upon America and the rest of the world for over 20 years now.

Forming in 2000, the Chicago natives achieved nationwide attention with their first two label-backed records, 2006’s Knuckles Up and 2007’s Jungle of the Midwest Sea. These releases built on a heavy dose of previously established regional notoriety, helping the band gain steam early on.

While each record received its fair share of acclaim, the quintet exploded onto a new level with 2010’s Black Thorn. Landing the band on a total of 9 Billboard Charts, Flatfoot 56 proved it could consistently reach an expanding audience while treading in a genre not often associated with widespread success. This success was advanced even further with song placements in the hit TV series “Sons of Anarchy” and the video game “Watchdogs”.

 

Welcoming back for their 2nd year KILMAINE SAINTS!

A band formed on good whiskey and bad intentions.

Kilmaine Saints are equal parts Irish Swagger, Scottish Pride and whiskey. This explosive, high-energy Celtic rock band from Central PA will lift your hearts, your spirits, and your pint when you’re not looking.

“While they have fantastic studio releases, not enough can be said about their live shows.  If The Kilmaine Saints come to your neck of the woods get out and see them, I promise you will enjoy it!  Much like whiskey The Kilmaine Saints are best enjoyed in copious amounts!

Also back for their 2nd year – BLAGGARDS!

Irish music mixed with rock n’ roll, informed by everything from Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley to Thin Lizzy and Black Sabbath. We are most frequently compared to bands like Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, and the Pogues.

Blaggards play “Stout Irish Rock”, traditional Irish music played as rock n’ roll. Lead singer Patrick Devlin is from Dublin, Ireland, but the band was born in Houston, TX.

We’ve been a full-time act since 2004, touring nationally and in Ireland, and have a large global audience (47 million total spins on Pandora, including 22 million spins for our most popular song, “Drunken Sailor”). Our songs have appeared in TV and movies, including CBS’s The Good Wife (two songs in episode 86, “Death of Client”), and 2016’s romantic comedy How To Be Single

“The Blaggards are amazing! They are a great, wonderful group of guys and their shows never disappoint! If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing them in person, I highly recommend you do so.”

“Great music, very amazing people, never the same show !”

“Incredible. Stunning. Soft, flowing, smells great. Patrick’s hair is that of which dreams are made.  And the band is pretty good, too.”

Performing both traditional and original material, their eclectic blend of styles has had local audiences raving since 2008. They are ranked one of the Top 10 Irish bands in Texas.

Expect to hear classic rock infused with Irish fiddle tunes, American Roots music, plus music from other Celtic traditions such as French-Canadian, Cajun, bluegrass, Scottish, and more!

We’re look forward to seeing PLUNK MURRAY!

We’re a drinking club with an Irish music problem…

What we’re about? Five friends that love music and are bound together by it, friendship, and doing something fun. Celtic music is not limited to Ireland or Boston, but it’s in the hearts of those who love it. Some of us have been in bands together, some of us have served together, and worked together, but when we get together in music, this… THIS is where we shine!

“Plunk Murray is a fantastic, diverse and slightly rowdy band that keeps all ages entertained with an eclectic mix of traditional, modern, and trans-genre hard folk music…”

Michael Logan- musical director for Sherman Celtic Festival

Also back for a 2nd year WAXIE DARGLES!

Stillwater’s loudest little Celtic band 

“Talented musicians that entertain you with music and songs. Always entertaining and upbeat.”

Welcoming back another fan favorite TULLAMORE!

Tullamore, quite simply, show themselves to be undeniably world class…”

Now in their 24th season, a steady slate of performances throughout Ireland, Scotland, and the US have made Tullamore one of the Heartland’s premiere Celtic bands. Fueled by Rachel Gaither’s stellar vocals and hot fiddling, Mary Hanover’s beautiful voice and personal charm, Michael Coakley’s soaring tenor voice and tasty accordion stylings, and Mark Clavey’s creative genius and love of folk and Celtic music, Tullamore’s sound is unmistakable – an American-folk body with a traditional Celtic soul. Their take on Celtic music is rich and clear vocals, tight harmonies and instrumentals, and cool and clever arrangements. Across the country and across the ocean, from arts-centers to pubs, Irish Festivals to Scottish Highland Games, Tullamore are favorites wherever they go.

Looking forward to seeing THE SELKIE GIRLS!

One of the premier ensembles of the genre in the North Texas region. 

Originally formed in 2013, The Selkie Girls have firmly established themselves as a mainstay in the North Texas folk music scene. With dozens of music and art festivals under their belt, as well as numerous television appearances, the band has toured throughout the States, never failing to captivate audiences with their unique instrumentation, lush harmonies, and dynamic arrangements. The band (Alli Johnson: vocals/guitar, Jaycie Skidmore: vocals/flutes/penny whistles, Dave Ervin: vocals/guitar/mandolin, Joel Black: upright and fretless acoustic bass, Martin McCall: percussion, and Linda Mudd: harp) draws upon a vast repertoire of ancient and contemporary ballads, traditional Irish and Scottish songs (often sung in the native tongue), and foot-stomping jigs and reels, creating a truly eclectic and affecting musical experience.​
