Celtic Rant is a Nova Scotian trio that delightfully delivers trad tunes, brings folk lyrics to life and gives a nuanced sense of home in original songs. They are funny and self-aware, creating lovely onstage camaraderie. With storytelling stringing the show together, Celtic Rant demonstrates exquisite talent on various instruments and stunning harmonies.
As music educators, they weave a strong sense of history and significance into their music and are willing and able to provide workshops as a secondary part of their bookings.
Celtic Rant consists of Victor Fraser on vocals, guitar, tenor banjo and fiddle, Rob Wigle on vocals, guitar, mandolin and bouzouki, and Rob Greene, who also does vocals and plays bass guitar, fiddle and pipes.
"Celtic Rant's live show covers every possible path along the Celtic music tradition, from original compositions to sea shanties, traditional jig sets, and Clancy Brothers covers. Playing almost a dozen instruments between them, the trio sang in resounding and effortless harmonies. They include first-class storytelling between songs, honouring the other great Celtic tradition." - Inverness Oran
