Calais Celtic Concerts Opens Its Summer Season with The JEREMIAHS From Ireland!

Thanks in part, to a grant from Culture Ireland, The Award Winning Irish Band, The Jeremiahs, will be our featured act in June. Playing at the Calais High School, on Wednesday June 21st, at 7:00 PM US/ 8:00 PM Canadian time. The doors will open at 6:00 PM EST.

From the outset The Jeremiahs grabbed the attention of the heavyweights like Irish Music Magazine whose Sean Laffey says they are “One of the freshest bands in traditional music” and Live Ireland who published “They are the real deal!”...

They shape their sound with Dubliner Joe Gibney's beautiful vocals and some whistle (not at the same time); Brian Corry from County Clare who plays whistle, flute and fiddle; Dublin based James Ryan who holds down the rhythm section on guitar and bouzouki and a few choice effects on pedas ;and finally Jean Christophe Morel, a frenchman drawn to Dublin by Irish Traditional Music, who does the bulk of the work of fiddle.

They heralded their arrival and gained immediate recognition by winning the Ballyshannon Folk Festival showcase competition their first year out. Two years later they've released their self titled album which includes the track 'Forgotten Sons' that Christy Moore picked as the song that “tickled my ears the most” and won the 2015 TradConnect Songwriters Showcase. Thus far the band have graced many stages during successful tours in countries such as Ireland, Russia, Germany, Denmark, England and Scotland.

This group is on the fast track upwards. They are just releasing a new CD, just in time for this tour, their first in the Eastern US. They are winners of the 2015 Best Vocal & Instrumental Album-LIVE IRELAND, Male Vocalist of the Year 2015-CHICAGO IRISH AMERICAN NEWS. Winner of the 2015 Christy Moore Songwriter Showcase, and Winners of the Ballyshannon Folk Festival Showcase. They are in high demand at major festivals around the world. Don't miss this chance to catch them in Calais, Maine.
