About The Crooked Road Céilí Band

Fresh Irish acoustic folk with real American roots.

The Crooked Road Céilí Band (pronounced "kay-lee", Gaelic for "party") is Julie Horner, David Chadwick, and Ken Bewick playing traditional Irish reels, jigs, polkas, slides, hornpipes, barn dances, slip jigs, and waltzes on the hammered dulcimer, fiddle, tenor banjo, mandolin, guitar, and bodhran. Our instrumentation and interpretation of classic and modern Irish folk music presents a wholly unique groove guaranteed to add lilt and lift to your special occasion!

We specialize in weaving together lovely indigenous Irish folks melodies and Irish and American songs, perfect for intimate acoustic settings. Our spirit and our sound creates and contributes to the overall sense of community and cheer, the music endlessly listenable and uplifting. Whether indoors or out, amplified or not, on stage or on the street, let us share our love of traditional music with you at your next gathering!

With a broad range of experience playing for weddings, wine tastings, street fairs, Celtic festivals, St.Patrick's Day events, and leading energetic traditional Irish seisiuns to cultivating an air of comfortable intimacy for private celebrations, The Crooked Road Ceili Band brings a wholly unique and melodic touch to your special occasion.

See you at an event soon!

All the very best,
Julie, David, and Ken
