A Celtic Renaissance Wedding

A romantic compilation of the Brobdingnagian Bards most romantic songs. Includes fifteen great tracks of classic music for a wedding, like Pachelbel Canon in F – Variations and The Bridal Chorus by Wagner. Plus, you’ll find some beautiful original Celtic instrumentals and very romantic vocal ballads, including music by Chet Atkins and Clannad.

The Brobdingnagian Bards (pronounced brAHb’ding-näg-EE-en) are The Original Celtic Renaissance. They perform a unique style of Celtic folk music that they like to call “a Renaissance in Celtic music”. Ask their fans though, and they’ll tell you the music is just plain “fun!” With six studio albums completed in just five years, combined with ten other compilations, singles and EPs, they’ve been called one of the most-productive Celtic groups around. But Andrew and Marc just love playing the music.

“We had planned on having a string quartet at our wedding. While looking on the web for groups, we ran across The Bards. We immediately called Karen’s dad, since he was footing the bill, and played Tolkien over the phone. It was an instant hit and we later chose it as the solo for our wedding ceremony. We decided to be a little different and use Maids in the Meadow for the recessional. It was wonderful!”  –Karen and Erik Hayden, Newlyweds

One Spot On Earth

Artist: Bow Triplets
Album: One Spot on Earth

Expressive Irish Celtic World music from Switzerland. Love Irish music? Singing dogs? Mystical Celtic Romance?

MAGE RECORDS & the CELTIC MP3s MUSIC MAGAZINE PRESENTS:

“Bow Triplets” or bowed triplets is the expression for one of the most frequent ornamentation used by Irish fiddlers to add that special and traditional groove and excitement that we know and love with Celtic music. Three very short and fast bow strokes are played instead of one note.

Bow Triplets is also the name of this musical group. The size of the group “Bow Triplets” varies with the theme and type of musical project or performance, from two -up to five musicians total. And instead of playing merely the well known groovy side of the Irish music, the musical friends who form “Bow Triplets” are always aiming at presenting all aspects of Celtic music. Ancient laments are mixed with contemporary compositions, rhythmic instrumental jigs, reels and hornpipes with melancholic magic. The Irish-Celtic music is the cradle of American bluegrass, New Zealand gold mining ballades… yes even Scandinavian folk music cannot deny its Celtic root influence.

Manifold instrumentation, exciting arrangements and much fun while playing music together is what contributes to giving the listening audience that infectious and profoundly intimate concert experience that they would expect from the Bow Triplets.
