County El Paso Ceili Band
Ceili pronounced (Kay-lee) is the Irish word for dance or party. The County El Paso Ceili Band is a 4-5 member group formed to perform instrumental Irish music. They employ the use of traditional Celtic instruments such as the uilleann (ill-un) pipes, fiddle, concertina, tin whistle, bodhran, and guitar.
Their repertoire includes: jigs, reels, and pub songs. Among the most traditional of all of our Irish bands, their sound reflects the times of old, and are a wonderful complement to a relaxing evening. They have played regularly at Jack Quinn's since 1998. Enjoy the music of county El Paso every Tuesday evening from
