About
Our 5-piece Celtic band (also available as a trio or 6-piece band) can rock your dance party, add elegance to your wedding reception, rekindle fond memories at your loved one's memorial service, or just inspire your friends to raise their pints and sing until they fall over smiling.
Charmas performs for private parties, modern dance clubs, festivals, traditional music concerts, pub and winery shows, weddings, memorial services, and charity events. The band's instrumentation includes lead and harmony vocals, fiddle, Celtic wooden flute, low whistle, pennywhistle, guitar, standup or electric bass, acoustic and electric guitar, kit drums and/or bodhran hand drum. Solo or with the band, Great Highland Bagpipes (or quieter Scottish "session" pipes) can be added to any band show (see Gigmaster listing for bagpiper Elise MacGregor Ferrell.), as well as a solo vocalist for special moments at weddings and memorial services.
Charmas' repertoire features well-loved Irish and Scottish ballads, traditional and modern comedy songs, sea chanteys, crowd-pleasing American cover songs, modern Celtic rock covers, original rock/pop/comedy songs, and mixed-style instrumental sets of our own design.
The band is reliable, professional, easy to reach by e-mail while planning your event, and usually books its gigs from 2-months up to 1-year in advance.
If you don't already see your favorite songs on our repertoire list, we are happy to take requests (please inquire for details).

The guys were great. Really loved what they did, especially the three part harmonies. We know a few of the same people, so that was a nice coincidence. Great job by Charmas - would fully recommend to anyone looking for a top notch Celtic crew. Cheers!

Thank you, Bekah, You are a great event coordinator. I hope we'll get to work with you again some time in the future, and I hope your guests will encourage lots of first-timers to fly over to Ireland and have the real experience. Best Wishes, Elise and Charmas
