The Ecclestons take the power of Celtic Soul and, with the magic of their performing, turn a group of strangers in the audience into a family connected by the roots of music..
They deliver through the music and with an honest and fun-filled presence in a way that keeps all ages coming back to see them again and again.
When you see the audience?s faces at a crowded performance you?re seeing a response to Celtic/Canadian music at its best. This band is about great energy, fine stories, and having a wonderful time.
This band ? formed by brother and sister, Kelt and Colleen Eccleston, and their ?adopted? brother Greg Madill, blends the spirit of an Atlantic Canadian kitchen party with the beauty of a warm Pacific summer?s night. The stage pulses with harmony in their amazing original songs, and in the fresh-found delight of traditional Celtic songs rediscovered. Their musical virtuosity is evident as they switch instruments to match the nature of each song. Not only that ? but it?s fun! The sheer exuberance of their performance is matched by the delight of an audience who together with the Ecclestons lean into the music ? united by song.
