Off Kilter

Tuatha Dea is pure primal energy with a Celtic and World twist. The bands eclectic sound blends the tribal vibe of primitive drums with conventional and non conventional instruments such as guitar, fiddle, bass, modern and Native American flutes, Didgeridoo, DRUMS and more as well as a myriad of vocal styles to create a truly unique sound. Tuatha Dea is a Gaelic phrase adopted from the Celtic mythology of the Tuatha de Danaan whose literary history originates in Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. If you are looking to categorize their sound….how about some APPALACHIAN CELTIC TRIBAL GYPSY ROCK!

SYR is an up and coming group based in the Columbia area that has grown out of traditional Celtic music roots. Their sound has evolved into upbeat, rhythmic original songs, as well as their own adaptations of  more traditional tunes. Solid vocals backed by a good rhythm section and accentuated by a fiery fiddler, Syr is a band to watch and listen for in the future. TDS is pleased to have them return to this year’s lineup. Here’s a cut from their latest CD. The title of this tune is Unto the Gallows.

One of the tightest Celtic groups going, Off Kilter honed their musical skills by performing for 18 years at Disney’s Epcot Center and at many of the countries’ premier Celtic events. Their showmanship is over the top and audiences will be awed by their sound. No doubt they will be a great addition to our tenth TDS.
