Celtic-Medieval Speed Folk… Maybe it’s good to first point out that this band plays fast. Insanely fast! Great fun on stage and dropping jaws of the audience everywhere they appear.
PerKelt has performed its unique, Celtic Medieval Speed Folk since 2008. All its members are highly-qualified, accomplished and award-winning musicians, performing on recorder, harp, guitar, percussion, and vocals. They perform passionate and energetic, strong, melodic Celtic sounds, through original composition with content drawn from Medieval and traditional sources. PerKelt has released three highly acclaimed albums and are playing regularly at Celtic, World music, and folk music festivals, Irish music venues, pubs, churches, castles, and Arts Centres. They are extremely proud to present refreshing, innovative and evocative Celtic music in a way that has never been heard before. They simply cannot be missed!
They’ve played over 700 performances throughout Europe; with the unleashed energy of unbelievably quick whistles, recorders, tribal drums, guitar-fuelled engine and haunting vocals; welcome to the World of PerKelt! Hold on to your antlers…
After hearing so many positive reactions to this band after they played at Castlefest and especially after sharing the stage with this band in Glastonbury last year, Rapalje knew one thing for certain: PerKelt belongs on Zomerfolk!
