Avalon Rising

Participates in 1 Session
Oakland, California-based Celtic rock band AVALON RISING is known for its unique sound -- a blend of original rock, Celtic, and Medieval music. Their rich acoustic/electric sound features brilliant male and female vocals over intricate instrumental arrangements, supported by a vibrant rhythmic background. Their line-up includes electric and acoustic guitars, electric violin, Celtic harp, flute, bass, mandocello, drums, and vocals.

With a repertoire that includes both original and traditional songs and ranges in feel from driving Celtic tunes to haunting harp-based ballads, Avalon Rising will enchant and excite you. Their music has been compared to Tempest, Loreena McKennitt, and Dead Can Dance with touches of Jethro Tull and the Grateful Dead.

Avalon Rising has been performing in the Bay Area and the Pacific Northwest for over fifteen years at clubs, festivals, pubs, benefits, and conventions. Festival performances include the Euro-American Festival in Jinan, China, the Livermore Scottish Games, the Modesto Scottish Games, the Sonoma County Fair, the Harmony Festival, the High Sierra Music Festival, and many more.

They headlined at the Oscar Party for THE LORD OF THE RINGS: The Return of the King. Their music has been used in a Boston Globe commercial, and can be heard in several movies, including Cost of a SoulValley of Fear, and Far From the Sea.
