Bio:

The sound of Boru's Ghost is an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, Celtic and folk music. While comparable to time-honored Celtic music, it is a refreshing and multifaceted blend. The group combines intelligent arrangements, driving rhythms, superb musicianship and complex vocal harmonies with such diverse rock influences as Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac. Although the band has its roots deeply embedded in Celtic music, one may not even immediately recognize traditional music performed by Boru's Ghost. Their energetic performances include inspired original compositions interspersed with thoughtfully arranged traditional Celtic songs. All are comprised with a distinctive style that is known among band mates and fans as "Boruasizing." Boru's Ghost uses many instruments while performing including but not limited to guitars, fiddle, bouzouki, mandolin, hammered dulcimer, Irish whistles, keyboard, bass guitar, bodhran, doumbek and a good old-fashioned trap set. Boru's Ghost has performed at fairs, coffee shops, bookstores, pubs and festivals, including the North Texas Irish Festival, the Oklahoma Arts Festival and the Oklahoma Celtic Heritage Festival.
