Christmas Céilidh Band

Rochester Christian Reformed Church, 2750 Atlantic Avenue, Rochester


Céilidh (pronounced “KAY-ley”) is the Gaelic word for a social gathering where traditional music, dancing, and storytelling abound. Rochester’s Christmas Céilidh Band has been delighting holiday audiences with their varied program of traditional and contemporary Celtic music and song since 2001. 


Christmas Ceilidh BandFeaturing Kevin Angus, Ben Ford, Pat Carey, Cathy McGrath, and Paul Gluchowski, the Christmas Céilidh Band creates an exciting energy, unique sound, and lively performance. Their combination of smallpipes, Irish flute, whistles, bagpipes, guitar, mandolin, Celtic bouzouki, cittern, cello, fiddle, percussion, and multi-voice harmonies creates an energetic, jovial, and festive atmosphere fitting for the holiday season. Click here to read more about the individual members.


This year’s program features a variety of carols, wassails, and instrumental tunes from the Celtic traditions of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Isle of Man, Canada, Cornwall, and Australia with themes centered around Christmas, the late autumn harvest, winter solstice, Hogmanay (a pagan Celtic celebration), and New Year’s. Audience participation is an integral factor of CCB’s performance as many of the pieces are traditional communal or storytelling songs. So come with your voice and holiday energy and have some old-fashioned fun!
