Grand Lassie of Ceremonies and performer
Celtic/country artist & fiddle player Laura McGhee. Originally from Scotland & based in Nashville; Laura's music is a hybrid of influences from her Celtic roots to country and Americana. Laura is currently working with some of Nashville's finest tunesmiths as well as touring with John Carter Cash, John McEuen and the Celts.
The Celts mix lively traditional Irish music and instrumentation with American pop music and their own originals. The Celts lineup stars, Ric Blair on vocal-guitar-bodhran & piano along with the lovely Laura McGhee from Dundee Scotland on vocal and fiddle complemented by an array of top-flight musicians on uilleann pipes, Irish whistles, fiddle, bodhran, banjo, five-string bass, drums and of course, the crowd pleasing Irish dancers.
Middle Tennessee’s most enduringly popular Celtic band since their inception in 1993. Influenced by The Pogues, The Chieftains, and traditional Irish pub bands, TSC’s music mixes original material with traditional music and many styles of American and European folk. The best way to sum up The Secret Commonwealth is to think of it as a party that became a band!
