Celtic Cross Visits Greenwood Lake

An outdoor concert of Celtic rock in Greenwood Lake called “Irish Night at the Beach”? Sounds like a pot o’ late-summer gold, indeed. And the pot will surely overflow when the seven-piece band Celtic Cross takes the stage in the Orange County town on August 23 for an evening of rollicking pop and traditional sounds.

Fronted by suitably flame-haired thrush Kathleen Fee, the New York-based Celtic Cross also features her brothers Kenny (fiddle) and John (button accordion) Vesey. Growing up with Irish immigrant parents, the three were immersed in Irish music, dance, and tradition, yet also heavily influenced by the rock ’n’ roll they heard on the radio—the end result is the group’s blend of thoughtful pop and Americana served with a lively Irish flare. The band recently released Saoirse’s Heart (2014, Independent), its fourth album, and is frequently played on Fordham University’s WFUV and SiriusXM’s “Celtic Crush” radio programs.

Listen to the band’s version of the traditional “Morrison’s Jig”:

“Irish Night at the Beach” featuring Celtic Cross will take place at Greenwood Lake’s Thomas Morahan Waterfront Park on August 23 at 7pm. The concert is free. For information, call (845) 494-1871 or visit http://www.villageofgreenwoodlake.org/calendar.html.
