Rooted in the traditional music of the seven Celtic nations (Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, The Isle of Man, French Brittany and Spanish Galicia), Golden Bough has become a popular and in-demand group on both sides of the Atlantic. Since their formation in 1980, this trio of modern day minstrels has traveled great distances to numerous countries, to bring their music to enthusiastic folk fans the world over. Backing themselves on an array of acoustic instruments; Celtic harp, guitar, octave-mandolin, mandolin, accordion, violin, penny-whistle and bodhran, they blend their voices in the pristine harmonies that have become a Golden Bough trademark. To date they have released over 30 recordings. In the recording studio, as well as on stage, Golden Bough captures the essence and joy of traditional music.

All three Golden Bough bandmates, are well versed in all genres of traditional folk songs, and have recently added favorites of the American Folk Revival from the 50's-60's. From working on the Railroads to leaving on that Jet plane, Golden Bough brings you the songs America loves.

For those of you seeking an entertaining respite that offers a bit of history, virtuosic instrumentation, sweet and seamless vocals, the occasional yarn and irrepressible toe-tapping, seek no more. Golden Bough is your answer.
