About Celtic Horizon band

Celtic Horizon band performed for many years in the UK and Europe and specialise in Corporate events, Theatres, Festivals, Weddings, etc.
Celtic folk band
Scotland, UK
Public liability insurance of £10 million

The band started as a duo in Scotland in 2001 with Neil Nicholson and Bob Ferguson the lead singers from the highly successful Beggars Row band. In 2015 they increased the band to a four-piece until the present line-up from 2017. The other two members are Menno Schilstra and Sebastian Meijer from the Netherlands. The lads had played together in the past and were good friends. When they reunited together it was like glue. It was a natural blend of music tastes and fun. The band play a mix of Scottish, Irish, various Celtic songs and their own songs and tunes. There is a fine balance between uptempo rousing songs and tunes that have the audiences clapping their hands and stamping their feet, and gentle ballads with beautiful choruses to fun songs. When the audience think they have seen it all members of the band leap from stage to perform among the audience and more... this is one of the most loved aspects of the band. It's not rehearsed and always spontaneous and natural to the members. Did I mention they might be a little crazy! After concerts, the band are always available to chat with the audience and sign autographs if requested. It's then audiences realise that what they see on stage are the natural personalities of the band and not an act. They are some of the happiest performers on this planet. You may think too much fun can spoil a gentle ballad. Don't worry, they know when to tone it down to the mood of the song. The members of the band have in their careers toured many countries including Russia, Israel, USA, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, England, Wales, Ireland, and of course Scotland. Along the way, there have been TV and Radio performances too. In the Past Celtic Horizon have performed at many of the top Corporate venues in Scotland including Stirling and Edinburgh Castle. The most recent event being at the renowned Gleneagles hotel.

Saturday the 29th of March we had a visit by Celtic Horizon Band in Horsens a fantastic band that gives the audience an experience they will forget late, if ever, in addition to being musically talented, there is a lot of humour, and their performance is unique especially when they walk around the audience, a presence you do not see every day, not the last time they perform for Folkscenen Horsens thanks for a lovely evening and a lovely experience
