A The Electricks/Flatfoot 56 fan has asked me if know any other Celtic Christian band. OK, I will post 4 bands. The first one is Eden Burning. Stay tuned for more.

"Eden Burning were a popular Christian band from Cheltenham led by Paul Northup. They originally met as members of Charlton Kings Baptist church, and were active within the Christian music community between 1989 and 1996. Their style - a mixture of "folk and the odd grungy guitar flying around", as Northup once described it - influenced many other artists, such as the group Why?. The band's name refers to the Garden of Eden burning down after Satan claimed it as his own when Adam and Eve were banished from Eden for eating the forbidden fruit. (See the book of Genesis)

During their time together the band recorded three studio albums. There was also a live album, Smilingly Home, recorded in front of their home crowd at what is now the University of Gloucestershire. Subsequently, to celebrate 20 years of the Greenbelt festival, the Christian music festival, they released a "Best of" album which is available from their website.

Paul Northup went on to play with Belljar, and later became general manager of Greenbelt Festivals Ltd.2" (from Wikipedia)

"Horslips are an Irish Celtic rock band that composed, arranged and performs their music based on traditional Irish jigs and reels. They are regarded as the 'founding fathers of Celtic rock' for their fusion of traditional Irish music with rock music and went on to inspire many local and international acts. The group formed in 1970 and disbanded in 1980.

Horslips were one of Ireland's leading rock groups of their era. Although they had limited commercial success in their own lifetime, there was a revival of interest in their music in the late 1990s and they came to be regarded as one of the defining bands of the Celtic rock genre. There have since been small scale reunions including appearances on The Late Late Show and RTÉ's Other Voices. The band reformed for two Irish shows in the Odyssey Arena in Belfast and the O2 Arena in Dublin respectively at the end of 2009. Four further dates have been announced for November/December 2010.

Band members

Jim Lockhart (born 3 February 1948), from James's St in Dublin, studied Economics and Politics at University College Dublin.[citation needed] He fell under the influence of Seán Ó Riada, wanting to build an orchestral sound out of Irish music. He played keyboards, pipes, whistles and flute. He did vocals on a select number of songs, mainly in Manx or Irish.

Eamon Carr (born 12 November 1948), is from Kells, County Meath. He was one of the founding members of a poetry and beat performance group called Tara Telephone in Dublin in the late 60s that also published the quarterly literary journal Capella. He was the drummer.

Charles O'Connor, (Born 7 September 1948) from Middlesbrough in the UK played concertina, mandolin, fiddle and both electric and slide guitar. He also shared the main vocal tasks with Barry Devlin and Johnny Fean.

Barry Devlin (born 27 November 1946), from Ardboe in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, once trained as a Columban priest. He left this to do English in UCD and then after joined a graphics company as a screenwriter. He was the band's bass player, shared vocals and its unofficial front man.

Johnny Fean (born 17 November 1951) spent his childhood in the city of Limerick and in Shannon, County Clare. He soon mastered guitar, banjo, mandolin and harmonica. In his teens, he played in sessions in Limerick and County Clare. He developed his listening tastes from rock to blues and incorporated it into his guitar style. In his late teens he played in a group called "Sweet Street," with Joe O'Donnell on electric fiddle and Eugene Wallace. He later played in "Jeremiah Henry," a rock and blues band. His idols were Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. He left "Jeremiah Henry" in 1970 to play traditional music again in Limerick.

Barry Devlin, Eamon Carr and Charles O'Connor met up when they worked at the Gerry Maher graphics company in Dublin. They were cajoled into pretending to be a band for a beer (Harp Lager) commercial but needed a keyboard player. Devlin said he knew a Jim Lockhart that would fit the bill. They enjoyed the act so much that they decided to try to do the rock thing properly. They hooked up with guitarist Declan Sinnott, a colleague of Eamon Carr's from Tara Telephone and Gene Mulvaney (briefly) to form Horslips (originally Horslypse) in 1970. The name originated from a spoonerism on The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse which became "The Four Poxmen on The Horslypse".

They went professional on St Patrick's Day 1972 having shed Mulvaney and released a single, "Johnny's Wedding", on their own record label, Oats. Declan Sinnott left soon after, primarily due to his annoyance at the group appearing in an advert for Mirinda orange drink (shot in The People's Park in Dun Laoghaire in Easter 1972) and was replaced by Gus Guest briefly, then Johnny Fean.

designed their own artwork, wrote sleeve-notes and researched the legends that they made into concept albums. They had their own record label and licensed the recordings through RCA for release outside Ireland. They kept their base in Ireland, unlike previous Irish bands.

In October 1972 Horslips went to Longfield house in Tipperary and recorded their first album, Happy To Meet, Sorry To Part, in the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio. They then released another single, "Green Gravel". On the first album the melodies were mostly traditional. Jim Lockhart was on keyboards and gradually mastered other instruments including uillean pipes. Eamon Carr was on drums, including the Irish bodhrán. Happy To Meet, Sorry To Part was the fastest-selling album for 8 years in Ireland.

The Abbey Theatre in Dublin asked the band to provide the background for a stage adaptation of "The Táin". They leapt at the opportunity. "Táin Bó Cúailnge" (The Cattle-Raid of Cooley) is a tenth-century story written in Old and Middle Irish. It tells of an ancient war between Ulster and Connaught. The Táin was released in 1973 and had more original material alongside the traditional tunes, and greater emphasis on rock. In the same year a single, "Dearg Doom", went to number one in Germany.

Dancehall Sweethearts followed in 1974, and also balanced folk with rock.Their fourth album, The Unfortunate Cup of Tea, drifted toward pop music and was a disappointment by comparison. RCA ended their funding deal for the group in 1975. The group funded their next venture themselves and went back to basics. Drive The Cold Winter Away (also 1975) was their most traditional album to date. They signed with DJM Records worldwide through A&R man Frank Neilson. The Book of Invasions: A Celtic Symphony (1976), like The Táin, was an adaptation of Irish legends built into a complex story. It went further into rock than any previous Horslips album. It is usually considered their best work. It was their first UK top-40 album since The Táin.

Ever ambitious, they now tried to make it in the United States. They brought in Jim Slye to become their manager. He later sold their publishing rights to William McBurney for £4,000. In 1977 they produced Aliens, about the experience of the Irish in nineteenth-century America, which included very little folk music. They toured Britain, Germany, Canada and the United States. The night that they played the Albert Hall in London was described by one critic as the loudest gig there since Hendrix. The Man Who Built America (1978), produced by Steve Katz of Blood, Sweat and Tears and Blues Project fame, concerned Irish emigration to the USA and was commercially their most successful album. The heavier sound did bring some acceptance in America but they lost their folk base and their freshness. Short Stories, Tall Tales (1979) was their last studio album and was panned by the record company and critics alike.

At a time when The Troubles were at a high, Horslips played gigs in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland without prejudice and were accepted everywhere. Their last recordings were from live performances at Whitla Hall in Belfast April and May 1980. A few months later, on October 12, 1980 they played their final gig in the Ulster Hall. They made no public announcement. They simply gave an encore—the Rolling Stones' song "The Last Time" (this was a reference to the recording studio of their first album) and the final act was Charles O'Connor throwing his mangled fiddle into the audience. Ten years after they formed, they disbanded.

Even before Horslips ended, Johnny Fean, Eamon Carr and two others founded the "Zen Alligators" in 1980. They played straight rock and soul on the Irish circuit, and they recorded several singles. Another spin-off group called "Host" contained Fean, O'Connor and Carr. They issued one album, Tryal, in 1984, and two singles.

The final album that had a Fean/Carr collaboration in the 80s was the 1986 under-rated The Last Bandits in the World.

Barry Devlin issued a solo album called 'Breaking Star Codes' in 1983 with some help from Jim Lockhart. The album had 12 songs, each based, loosely, on the signs of the zodiac. Further Lockhart/Devlin collaborations included the theme tune to the popular RTÉ drama series 'Glenroe'.

In 1986 Johnny Fean moved to England. An English indie band called Jacobites (1983 to 1986) consisted of Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth. Their 1986 album Ragged School had Johnny on guitar.

He also played sporadically with a Horslips tribute band Spirit of Horslips and pub gigs with pick up three-piece The Treat, which sometimes featured former Thin Lizzy guitarist Eric Bell instead of Fean.

In 1990, the electric guitar intro to "Dearg Doom" was used for Put 'Em Under Pressure, Ireland's 1990 World Cup song, written by Larry Mullen and featuring the Republic of Ireland national football team and Moya Brennan. This use of the intro may be better known in Ireland than the original.

Charles O'Connor released an instrumental album called 'Angel on the Mantelpiece' in collaboration with Paul Whittaker in 1997.

Johnny Fean continues to play live music with Stephen Travers, formerly of The Miami Showband.

After his retirement from swinging the drum sticks Eamon Carr went on to become a noted producer of young rock talent in the mid 1980s and also forming his own record label called Hotwire (which sponsored noted acts like the punk rock group The Golden Horde. He has also did a number of specialist DJ slots on radio before morphing into a music/sports journalist with the Evening Herald in Dublin. More recently he has presented on a Dublin station 'Carr's Cocktail Shack' in which Eamon plays American music of the 50s and 60s.

In 2008 Eamon Carr and former Wings and Joe Cocker guitarist Henry McCullough co-wrote a new bunch of songs. A resulting album entitled "Poor Man's Moon" is due for release on 1 September 2008. See

Also in 2008, Eamon released his first book, The Origami Crow, Journey Into Japan, World Cup Summer 2002, a book that is at once a travel log about his journey to Japan, a poetry collection, an homage to Japanese poet Basho, heralded by many as the creator of Haiku, and also has some sports commentary thrown in!

Barry Devlin has directed for the screen and been a drama writer for radio and screen, as can be seen from his credits on the IMDB and for the radio detective drama Baldi He produced a number of U2 videos in the mid 80s. Examples of his screen writing are evident in the joint RTÉ/BBC production Ballykissangel and ITV's The Darling Buds of May.

Jim Lockhart is head of production at RTÉ 2fm and has also done some production work and music arrangement.

Charles O'Connor owns two antique shops in Whitby in the UK. O'Connor continues to record folk and traditional music in his home recording studio.

Copyright issues

For 20 years William McBurney, head of Belfast based Outlet records for over 40 years, received royalties from vinyl and CDs, including many compilations. He claimed that he bought the rights in "good faith" from Jim Slye, who managed Horslips from the late 1970s until the band's final gig. However, the quality of these releases left much to be desired. Shoddy artwork and dodgy sound meant that most of these releases were in the bargain bin at £2.99, leaving the five former members disillusioned at the state of affairs. In fact it led to at least one band member refusing to listen to the music for almost all of 20 years.

The former band members fought back and on March 7, 1999 won a court victory in Belfast for the copyright ownership and a substantial financial settlement. Horslips are now again fully in control of their music and, to that end, released the entire back catalogue on CD in 2000 / 2001 with updated artwork and digitally remastered sound


In March 2004 three Horslips enthusiasts, Jim Nelis, Stephen Ferris and Paul Callaghan, put on an exhibition of Horslips memorabilia in The Orchard Gallery in Derry. It was opened by the band, who played five songs acoustically.
Buoyed by this first public appearance in 24 years, Horslips returned to the studio in Westmeath to produce a studio album, Roll Back, in the summer of 2004. Described as "Horslips Unplugged", the album contains acoustic reworkings of many of their best-known songs.

The same exhibition moved to Drogheda in October 2005, courtesy of longtime fan Paddy Goodwin, and was formally opened on October 6 by a tribute band, Horslypse, composed of nine teenage musicians. Horslips did a rambunctious version of "Furniture" at the end.

The exhibition moved to Belfast in February and March 2006 and there were plans for a New York showing in 2007. In February 2008, the exhibition opened in Ballinamore in County Leitrim, and then, in July, opened in Ballybofey in Donegal.

A double DVD entitled Return of the Dancehall Sweethearts came out in November 2005. Disc one is a documentary and disc 2 is live footage of the band from the 1970s, including promo videos and slots on The Old Grey Whistle Test.

In December 2005 the band played in front of an invited audience for the recording of the RTÉ television program Other Voices in Dingle in County Kerry. Part of the set included three songs done "full-on" -- the first time the band played live and electric since October 1980.

The last Horslips' event so far in this phase of their career was a TG4 tribute show recorded and broadcast live on March 25, 2006 before a live invited studio audience. A number of Irish personalities were interviewed, in Irish, about what the band meant to them and how Horslips shaped modern Irish music.


A few bands revisited the career of Horslips over time, the first known instance is Irish band Winter's Reign doing 'Dearg Doom' for their 1987 full length release entitled "The Beginning."

More recently, the band Slough Feg (formerly known as The Lord Weird Slough Feg) from the U.S. covered 'Dearg Doom' on their full length "Hardworlder" for Cruz Del Sur music.

Malcolm Young of AC/DC has stated that Horslips is one of his favourite bands.
2009 reunion / 2010 Concert

On July 2, 2009 it was announced that Horslips would reunite for two shows, their first 'open public' gigs since 1980. The band played the Odyssey Arena in Belfast on Thursday December 3 and the O2 Arena in Dublin on Saturday December 5.

Drummer Eamon Carr did not play the concerts, citing personal reasons, though he was fully supportive and remains a fifth member.

The band played two invite-only warm up gigs in McHugh's of Drogheda on 26 and 27 November.

The band was set to play at "Live at the Marquee" Cork City on the 26th June 2010, but the concert was cancelled due to Jim Lockhart's falling ill.

Sydney band The Rumjacks have released their debut album Gangs Of New Holland through Laughing Outlaw Records on Friday September 3rd.

Gangs Of New Holland was produced by Dave Hammer (The Snowdroppers, Rex Banner, Mz Ann Thropik) in Sydney and recorded at Big Jesus Burger Studios. It is an unrelenting 14 songs as a soundtrack for life, from teat to the tomb.

The resulting full length album, Gangs Of New Holland contains not only the band’s truest take on the traditional influences they hold dear but also manages to up the ante on arsekickin’ energy.

Having spent the last two of years peddling their blue collar brand of folkloric ‘rotgut n’ roll’, The Rumjacks are forging their own sound, over rattling bottles and twisted tales, long nights up and down the East Coast of Australia and likely as not, sprawled on the floor when the sun comes up.

With their first two Eps (Hung, Drawn & Portered and Sound As A Pound), The Rumjacks captivated the people; from swingin’ rockabilly cats to fans of hardcore punk and old school rock n’ roll... even a quiet acoustic gig or two didn’t daunt these brave young fellows, they proved themselves to be at home anywhere they could set up and play.

Having shown the ability to fit in (and rise above) anywhere, anytime, The Rumjacks have shared the stage with acts as diverse as Gogol Bordello, UK Subs, Leftover Crack, Magic Dirt and Regular John. They also headlined the National Celtic Folk Festival this year.

To celebrate the release of the album, The Rumjacks will do what they do best and that is play live! September will see them playing all regional shows along Australia’s East coast and in October they are getting set to support Punk-rock legends GBH on their national tour that will take it all capital cities.

(Thanks Daoulas for the shout-out)

"Meet The Stanfields, a maelstrom of rock ‘n’ roll, Celtic and bluegrass. Hailing from the gritty post-industrial towns of Nova Scotia, The Stanfields play every show like it’s their collective last night on earth. Their kitchen party harmonies, thunderous rhythm section, high-octane stage show and genuine chemistry have won over audiences clear across the nation.

Since forming in the summer of 2008, The Stanfields wasted no time making their mark on the venerable Atlantic Canadian music scene. Hailed as “The Clash meets Steve Earle” by Great Big Sea’s Sean McCann and “The Bastard Children of ACDC and Stan Rogers” by Halifax’s Q104 FM, further accolades began rolling in, including a double win for “Best New Artist” and “New Artist/Group Recording” at the 2009 Nova Scotia Music Awards. In March 2010 The Stanfields were voted Halifax’s “Best Band”, “Band Most Likely to Make it Big” and, for the second consecutive year, “Best Band to get Trashed to” by readers of The Coast magazine. 135 sweat soaked shows and multiple cross country trips later, including a shared bill with Sloan at the Vancouver Olympics, The Stanfields returned to the recording studio under the guidance of gifted producer/engineer Darren Van Niekerk (Matt Mays, K-OS) to shore up their debut effort, entitled Vanguard of the Young and Reckless (Groundswell/Warner).

A thematic departure from traditional Canadian East Coast fare, where good times and family values are emphasized and celebrated, Vanguard explores the darker, unspoken side of Maritime living and how it relates to an increasingly globalized world. The sinister, feedback-laced, opening track “Dagger Woods” is a dementia-fueled whirlwind in the Crazy Horse style, with the barely contained rage and furious delivery of vocalist/guitarist Jon Landry in the fore. The lead single “The Dirtiest Drunk (in the History of Liquor)” portrays substance-driven lunacy beneath the thin veneer of a traditional rock ‘n’ roll party tune, collectively propelled by bassist Craig Eugene Harris and drummer Mark Murphy’s relentless barrage of heart stopping rhythms. Perhaps the most identifiable Stanfields number to date is “Ship to Shore”, a dark, energetic romp highlighted by the duel cascading leads of guitarist Jason MacIsaac and Jason Wright on bouzouki.

Ship to Shore is an ode to the men and women who put themselves in harm’s way, not for an idealistic agenda or political will, but to preserve a social hierarchy that is increasingly letting them down at every turn, at home and abroad,” says Jon Landry. He elaborates further, “ I feel that in many ways, we are both benefactors and victims of the information age, being constantly bombarded with reports of bloodlust and a crumbling economy, all the while being spurred on by a marketer’s interpretation of what ‘the good life’ is, the things we have to own to make it so, and the hoops we have to jump through to get there. I find this duality confusing and rather stressful. I think a lot of people do. I know this is not a new or original observation by any means, but I think it is an important one that has to be re-addressed time and time again culturally, particularly in popular music.”

“Of course, I recognize that we might come off as a bunch of doomsayers to the uninitiated, but really, we are all pretty positive guys”, he continues. “Let me be clear in this. Our ‘art’, so to speak, is left at the tavern door. Seeing people having the time of their lives at a rock show trumps any perceived barstool prophet credo we’re spouting. We show up at the venues every night to entertain, to make people party their asses off and to forget their troubles, at least for a few hours. That is the commitment we have made to our audience, and believe me, there have been many, many mornings after where we are hoarse, sore and bleeding from the process.”

Having recently signed a management and label deal with the aptly titled Halifax label GroundSwell Music and with the support of Warner Music Canada and booking agent Paul Gourlie of The Agency Group, the Stanfields are well positioned to make an impact and resonate with a wide cross section of music lovers with their release. Vanguard of the Young and Reckless promises to lyrically deliver a layman’s perspective to the thought process while musically catering to primal rock ‘n’ roll instinct, inviting you to think, drink, dance or fight back.

It’s your call."

"The Kreellers are a high energy Celtic Rock group hailing from Detroit, Michigan. This four-piece powerhouse has been unstoppable, performing over 100 shows in 2009, recording the music for Fuji’s Enviromax Battery ad campaign, and writing and recording new tunes for their upcoming CD. Still steeped in traditional Irish sound, the band’s mix of rock, funk, and even punk elements has created a sound that has won over fans, critics, and even skeptics throughout the North and Midwest and has made them one of the most sought after Celtic acts in the region."

REILLY - Live at the House of Guinness

This bootleg features covers of Pogues and Saw Doctors songs, as well as some traditionals. It was available at the band's website a long time ago.

"Formed in early 2000 by percussionist Brian Reilly and original guitarist Johnny O'Donnell, plans were laid for the unique sound for which Reilly is now known. Following the tragic death of Brian Reilly in August of 2000 and a subsequent loss of band personnel, O'Donnell sought to keep the torch burning, and enlisted guitarist/vocalist Patrick Moores and multi-instrumentalist Jim Kiley to help rebuild the group.

After another parting of personnel, bassist/vocalist Chris Carter and drummer Brian Bruendl joined the fold, seeking to form the group's trademark booming rhythm section. Carter left the group in late 2002 to pursue other interests, and was aptly replaced by fellow Irishman and scene veteran Michael "Tinker" Tierney on bass and vocals. Following St. Patrick's Day 2001 Bruce Troeller joined on accordion-with-attitude to complete the sound.

A few hundred pub gigs later, Reilly released their Debut CD in December of 2002. Self-produced by Troeller and the band, "Beyond the Pale" is a collection of Reilly originals and traditional Celtic tunes that have been "De-ranged" by the group in their own style, which seeks to meld the tradition and history of Ireland with the energy and instrumentation of the rock music the band is influenced by. From the Celtic-Blues of "On the Dole", to the pounding version of the Luka Bloom favorite "City of Chicago", to the new Milwaukee pub favorite "Sinner's Sermon", "Beyond the Pale" has something for all music lovers, especially lovers of contemporary Irish music.

Milwaukee Celtic-Rock band, Reilly, released “Kick Ass Celtic Christmas” on Oglio Records of Torrence, CA October 21st, 2008.

Melding familiar holiday standards with the high energy Celtic-Rock that Reilly has become known for throughout the Midwest, “Kick Ass Celtic Christmas” also features a trio of Reilly original compositions including the hilarious “Dear Santa (I Can Explain)”; the touching “Bells Over Boston”; and “For You On Christmas”, a tribute to our troops fighting overseas.

Kick Ass Celtic Christmas” is the follow up to the band’s 2007 release “Saints of the Ocean”, and also serves as the debut album with new label Oglio Records (Beatallica, Nerf Herder, George Lopez, etc).

Recorded (somewhat ironically) by Shane Olivo throughout the summer of 2008, the album also features guest performances by Milwaukee musical mainstays Chris Conrad, Mitch Cooper, Matt Ostlund, John Steffes, members of the Mighty Lumberhorn, and nationally renown bag-piper Kimberly Siegel.

According to vocalist/guitarist Michael “Tinker” Tierney, “Reilly has built a name for ourselves by blending Celtic heritage with modern rock energy. “Kick Ass Celtic Christmas” gives us a chance to share our sound with an audience that possibly wouldn’t be exposed to what we do on their own, and at the same time allows Celtic music fans to celebrate the Holidays with the music they’ve always known, but finally mashed up with the music they love.”"
