About
From Danny Boy to Dicey Riley, Butterfly to Blarney Pilgrim, Celticado's renderings of traditional Irish songs, ballads and dance sets will send you back in time and set your toes tapping! Formed in 2004 by fiddler Adam Sweet and Guitarist James Bunting, the duo has played for audiences from Cairo to California and everything in between. A typical set is a combination of original songs such as "Doolin To Dublin", "Lark O'Blarney", and "Paddy's Welcome" to crowd pleasers such as "Cockles and Mussels", "Irish Rover" and our personal favorite "Brennan on The Moor". The band's traditional Irish ceilidh sets of jigs, slip jigs, slides, reels, hornpipes, polkas and more, will keep you dancing the night away.

Celticado means "Celtic Duo" in Gaelic. The duo performs a mixture of traditional and modern ceilidh dance music and song. Based in western MA, they are regular performers around town. Celticado is an all acoustic Celtic duo based in the Connecticut River Valley of western Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut. With fiddler Adam R Sweet and guitarist James Bunting, the duo specializes in performing delightful music for weddings, parties and more. In addition to Celtic music, the band can perform a mixture of bluegrass, acoustic country and western swing, klezmer, folk and world music. For an additional (small) fee, the duo can become a trio, a quartet or a large ensemble, offering a wider range of musical styles, instrumentation and performance opportunities such as Rehearsal Dinners, Jack and Jill's, Reception Dances, Soirees and Transitional Music and much more. Our bagpiper provides an additional traditional sound to add to any special or traditional event, and our DJ completes the evening with dance and party music for any scene.

They are a wonderfully talented group and I was very thankful to have them for my cocktail hour. During the process of planning, it was difficult. They were not strong in communication with me and there were last minute hiccups. I initially hired them for my ceremony and CH but we cancelled them for the ceremony because they were not comfortable learning some songs they initially said they could. Overal, they are wonderful and would be great for any occasion! Just give them the time they need to be there and let them do their thing and all will go great! My guests loved them!

Adam Sweet and his colleague lifted our son's wedding rehearsal BBQ with their lively tunes and professionalism. Our BBQ was held in a rustic setting and Adam was most accommodating to our needs. So many of our guests commented on how perfect their Celtic music was as a backdrop to a fun filled evening under the stars. Adam was very accommodating in advance, too, as we planned the evening's schedule. If you're looking for a classy, smooth Celtic ensemble, you'll find it in Sweet Music.
