“...the sound is at once fresh and other worldly”
- Josef Woodard, Los Angeles Times

Four kindred spirits, Celeste Ray, Maria Banks, Carol Crittenden and Alison Crossley joined forces to create a vibrant, vivacious and fresh Celtic group for the enjoyment of their many fans.

Focusing on the music and poetry of the ancient Celtic tradition, their instruments and harmony-singing style transport audiences to the enchanted kingdom of the ancient isles. Presenting a wide range of repertoire, from popular titles "Danny Boy" and "Molly Malone," to original psaltery dances, jigs and reels,

Four Celtic Voices raise their voices in lush three-part harmonies while performing on authentic Celtic instruments. Celeste, founding member, began playing piano at age six. Los Angeles Times exclaimed, "Celeste's voice is a warm and pleasant instrument..." Ray's performances on double Bowed Psaltery are of the highest technical caliber. Maria started playing the harp at the age of seven and within ten years debuted as a concerto soloist with the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra. Carol began her love of music also at an early age, and now expresses itself through her virtuoso singing and songwriting. Alison received her degree in Flute Performance from Carnegie Mellon and her MA degree in Music Performance from NYU. Alison has performed nationally and internationally as an orchestral and chamber musician.

“ Their voices are beautiful, their instrumental creations are wonderful, connecting so effortlessly with the audience ”

-–Irish Heritage Society of Albany, New York
