Act Profile

Mediaeval-Celtic Fusion

Medieval-Celtic Fusion is one of the most appreciated Medieval and Celtic bands in the country with a wide range of different songs for every occasion. Atmospheric music during dining or at a drinks reception, music for
dancing, a Wedding ceremony music, or a full concert, Medieval-Celtic Fusion is the great choice to set up the proper Celtic or Medieval mood in any event.

Medieval-Celtic Fusion has a wealth of experience playing at many events throughout the country, prestigious World-Music venues, theatre projects and medieval taverns and festivities all over Europe. The band is renown for their musical skills, flexibility and high level of professionalism.

Some of the venues at which they have appeared include The Hootananny, The Spice of Life or The Dublin Castle, a multitude of gigs at The Jamboree, regular performances at some of the biggest Medieval taverns of Europe, such as the "Detenice" in the Czech Republic for over audiences of over 800 people, as well as performing regularly as part of the "Shakespearience" theatre project in London.
