About Celtic Chaos:
Celtic Chaos are a fun-loving, high-energy band from Qualicum Beach and Nanaimo. The group consists of Dave Barta on accordion and vocals, Joyce Beaton on fiddle, cello, and harmony vocals, John Beaton on poetry,Gordon Lafleur on Irish wooden flute, penny whistle and vocals, and Joe Spinelli on double bass and vocals.For almost 20 years, Celtic Chaos have performed throughout their home base of Vancouver Island and beyond, and have raised funds for many worthwhile causes. Their repertoire consists of songs and tunes from the broad Celtic world (including Scotland, Ireland, Quebec, Cape Breton, Sweden, and Appalachia), interspersed with original poetry.
They have recently created a full-length show called "For the HIghlanders." It tells the story, in tunes, songs, and original poetry, of Scottish emigration to Canada and how it relates to migration flows in today's world. Performances were stalled by Covid but will resume in the near future. John Beaton has just released a poetry book, "Leaving Camustianavaig," which deals primarily with the same subject.
The band has released 3 CDs, one of which won a former band member the Canadian Folk Music Young Performer of the Year award. Their latest CD, "Puredeadbrilliant," is, not surprisingly, pure dead brilliant.
Celtic Chaos love to share, not only their music and poetry, but also their infectious good humour, energy, and audience engagement.
