Artist Biography

CFI Celtic Rock takes audiences by storm.

Founded in traditional Celtic and solid Rock roots, the band has developed a unique style and repertoire, including numerous original songs and arrangements that appeal to a wide audience.

A contemporary Celtic Rock band with 12 members, CFI's rock-solid rhythm section powers the groove for bagpipes together with electric guitars, keyboards, and powerful vocals.

The group combines wildly different genres of music into a hybrid and lively sound. Often accompanied by the Celtic Ceilidh Dancers, their live shows provide a fun night of energetic and very danceable music.

The band is based in Edmonton, and past venues speak to the broad appeal of their sound.
