What to Expect
"Craic in the Stone" is a six piece Celtic Folk/rock band that can also provide top of the line PA equipment and portable stage lighting for events up to 500. Our members have been professionally involved in musical entertainment for decades, and offer a truly professional experience at every show we do. Since we are primarily a recording and concert band, we don't play weekly bar gigs, and are selective about the shows we book. Classy Wedding and corporate events and special occasions that call for traditional Celtic/Irish music are our calling. We play a mix of ballads, pub songs, ethereal Celtic folk music, and rockin' modern British Isles covers from Flogging Molly to The Beatles. For a Celtic themed event, it doesn't get any better than Craic in the Stone!
"Craic in the Stone" is a six piece Celtic Folk/rock band represented by Scott Well ((email hidden) (phone number hidden)) that has been performing since early 2013 around Southern California, and has released two full length CDs; Say Yes to Craic, and No Nay Never. The band plays new arrangements of traditional Celtic and Irish music, as well as covers of modern British Isles pop (Cranberries, Flogging Molly) and original songs. We use standard instruments (guitar,bass, violin, piano) with four singers but with a more traditional percussion sound using the Irish bodhran and cajon. By mixing ballads, raucous pub songs, and tight instrumentals and modern Irish covers, we create a variety of sounds and styles for an entertaining evening. Our substantial set list allows us to read the crowd and fit the mood to keep the energy right. Our members are experienced musicians from Orange, LA, and Riverside Counties, and have performed in four Counties around SoCal. We have sold and streamed over 100,000 songs internationally and have a strong social media following. We have played at Segerstrom Center at the ArtsOC awards show, The Chance Theater in Anaheim where we also performed a month long run of our original musical production called "A Celtic Holiday with Craic in the Stone", and are currently in the studio working on our third CD to be released this fall.
