'Sounds of Wonder' Artists
'Celtish' is the title of the first recording we (Nigel & Julie /Sounds of Wonder) have made of our own unique sound. It takes the form of an instrumental album featuring Celtic melodies that we love and powerful new compositions, played on Irish whistles and fiddle/violin. Whist 'Celtish' is the name of our first album, it will also serve as our band name when we perform Celtic folk music at home or abroad, with guest musicians to supplement our sound.
Our first vocal album together, 'Celtish Christmas', was released in 2017
Our 2019 album of Celtic Songs, Hymns & Prayers is 'Celtish Devotion'
