Event Description

Equally at home in front of 40,000 cheering fans at an international festival, with widely recognized, Grammy award-winning symphony orchestras, or with 300 fans in a small Midwest club, Seven Nations has created a truly hybrid sound and transient live show. The depth and complexity of their music is astounding. The band's first set will feature traditional Celtic music, the second act original Celtic-Fusion.

"Explosive. Seven Nations blows Palace into Orbit. You'd be hard pressed to find a more original, unique, but accessible group. Powerful, self-penned tunes and transcendent live shows. A musical force to be reckoned with, Seven Nations' day has come."— Albany Times Union

“Seven Nations taught a crowd of nearly 10,000 one important lesson: bagpipes rock.” — Lancaster Intelligencer Journal

“The music was riveting. Folks were dancing in the aisles. The cheers were deafening.” — Independent Mail 

The band's name refers to the seven Celtic nations of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Galicia, Isle of Man and Brittany. They officially began performing in 1993 in New York City with a standard line-up of drums, guitars, and bass. “We soon introduced bagpipes into the show," notes lead singer and guitarist Kirk McLeod."Over time the number of songs utilizing bagpipes grew until it became obvious that they were integral to our emerging sound. Most of the band members grew up playing Celtic music and we’ve been performing original compositions since we began. Our instrumentation, and bagpipes and fiddle mostly, give us a distinctive sound and that’s what makes us different.”

Seven Nations has been touring full-time since 1994 with successful stops in Europe, Canada, Puerto Rico, and virtually every state in the US. The band has recorded a number of albums with over a quarter million units in sales. Their latest album, Tales from the Eighth Nations, has been praised for having the appeal of the original albums, yet a mature songwriting style. The lyrics are relatable, surprising, and the pipe/fiddle hooks stir a desire to listen to the album over and over. "We are lucky," says McLeod, "because we come from two unique cultures. We love American pop and rock and roll, but we also love our Celtic roots. We want to touch everybody with our music," he continues, "and so far, we have been very, very fortunate.
