Updated 26/12/2014 - Hello, ho, ho
Good evening and season's greetings to each and every one of
you. As we approach the end of another year for the band which has seen fantastic highs and heartbreaking lows we want to
say thanks to every single person that makes the effort to support us, check the website or Facebook group, buys a CD, buy
us a pint, drives us about, hits the dance floor when we play or just stands and listens. We really
could not continue to do this without you all and we appreciate it each and every time.
We have one final gig before we put 2014 to bed and with your attendance it could and should be
SATURDAY 27th DECEMBER - The Old Post Office 9pm
huge dancefloor , a lovely pub. No excuses. See you there
02/09/2014 - The Return of The Celts.............
hello there, how have you been?
It seems that some of you do actually use this place as a sounding board for what
we're up to (God bless ya') and you've noticed that its not been updated for about 6 months and the main reason
for that is that its all been a bit quiet on the Celts front.
After St Patrick's weekend we have only played
a handful of slots at all day gigs with other bands but we have also had to have some enforced time off
due to some running repairs needed to our guitarist James. He needed a small operation on his wrists (insert smutty
joke here) which has meant we were unable to play as regularly as we'd have liked. However as the site is being updated
you've probably guessed that Belt of the Celts are on their way back and we're raring to go.
We have a
full calendar of gigs up to the end of the year with a couple of special "one off" gigs in the pipeline too - more
details to come.
As the photo above shows, we have been using the down time productively to not only
help James get back up to speed after his operation but also to knuckle down to some serious rehearsal
we've now got some belting new songs added to the set. All done in the hope of providing you
all with some great nights at the back end of 2014.
The Calendar page has been updated with the confirmed gigs but
we also have a very well run Facebook page too if that's your thing. There you can keep up to date with all things
to do with the band with the exception of ice bucket challenges, vague statements about people who have pissed us
off or heavily tinted pictures of our tea!
To hopefully whet your whistles and to kick us off in grand fashion
we can excitedly announce that our first public gig for almost 6 months will be on:
21st SEPTEMBER at HALIFAX IRISH CENTRE from 2pm
It would be fantastic to see
as many of you there as possible to welcome us back in grand style and also help support the club too.
following off the back of that we have a gig in a newer venue to us and again your support will be needed on:
SATURDAY 27th SEPTEMBER at THE IVY HOUSE from 9pm
That's all for now - we're really looking forward to returning, we've missed playing,
we've missed the people who come to support us and we intend to make up for the time we've lost.
see you at the bar!
