The band performs a variety of Celtic and American folk songs using two- and three-part harmonies along with some songs from the sixties and seventies. Solo tracks by Mary Behan Miller (the lead female vocalist) are also available here. A significant number of her tracks will be from other Genres.
Why this name?
Given that the band's mainstay would be Celtic music, it seemed like a good idea to have "Celtic" in the title. However, we didn't want it to be pronounced "Seltic" so we spelled it "Keltic"! Adding kaleidoscope to the name provided a little alliteration and also hinted at a variety of music.
Do you play live?
The group has performed at a variety of venues including The University of Michigan, the Toledo Hibernian St. Patrick's Day Festival, the Toledo Irish-American Festival, the Cloister at the Toledo Museum of Art and Mickey Finn's Pub in Toledo.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The dynamics of the industry are very different now and lesser-known groups have the opportunity to be heard on a world-wide basis. Perhaps as important, personal computers provide an excellent means to record and mix music. Low-budget high-quality tracks can easily be produced.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
No way!
