Golden Bough
Friday, March 29

“The group has made a name for itself in Bordesholm. Thus the two concerts on Saturday and Sunday were sold out. (Golden Bough) create, in a wonderful way, the connection between the old and the new world, not only musically, but also the spirit. Once in stride, (they) heated up the public and didn't get away without four encores.”
–Holsteinischer Courier, Germany

Rooted in the traditional Celtic music of Ireland and Scotland (as well as Wales, Cornwall, The Isle of Man, French Brittany and Spanish Galicia), this trio of modern day minstrels has expanded upon these ethnic styles through the development of intriguing arrangements and original compositions. In this way, they have created a sound unique unto themselves. Since their formation in 1980, Golden Bough has traveled great distances to numerous countries, to bring their music to enthusiastic folk fans the world over.

Backing themselves on an array of acoustic instruments, including; Celtic harp, guitar, octave-mandolin, mandolin, accordion, violin, penny-whistle and bodhran, they blend their voices in pristine three-part harmony and feature haunting solo vocals. In the recording studio, as well as on stage, Golden Bough captures the essence and joy of traditional music.
