From a casual jam session at Grand Valley State University (GVSU) to becoming a popular favorite at Celtic festivals across the Midwest, CrossBow has been humbled and excited by every turn on their musical journey. They deliver a distinct, eclectic Celtic vibe that appeals to audiences of all ages. While Crossbow can be heard at Irish and Scottish music festivals across the Midwest, much of the thrill in experiencing a CrossBow performance actually transcends the music itself. This excitement stems from the contagious joy and camaraderie shared between the players, and communicated directly with their audience. Apparent from the moment they hit the stage- these high-energy musicians naturally feed off of one another, creating a dynamic, wholly unique performance that shouldn't be missed.

The Nashville Celts pack concert halls around the world including The Grand Ole Opry, The Ryman Auditorium, The Lincoln Center, and many other performing arts centers, Theaters, and large Casinos. The music of The Nashville Celts is uniquely original. When asked about their music style Ric Blaire (vocals) says, "I'm proud of my Irish/Scottish roots, but I am equally proud of my American music roots. So, our music has become a product of blending the two." Blair credits the groups popularity to their melding of modern American hit songs and sounds with organic Celtic instruments as well as the success of the PBS- TV specials.
