Claymore and Beacon Arts Centre presents
Claymore + Special Guest
Are you ready? Celtic music is about to get turned on its head thanks to Australian rockers Claymore!
The multi-instrumentalists not only manage to combine traditional elements of Celtic music, but they take that passion and soul and rock it right into the 21st century in a formidable rock style. Few bands can pull off the sensitive task of re-educating the traditional realm into the modern day, but that’s something of a specialty for Claymore. Not only that, but they manage to write beautiful original Celtic compositions.
It’s not surprising that the band have fans around the world. They’ve toured everywhere, from packing houses in New York, Scotland and New Zealand, to several headline appearances at Festival Interceltique De Lorient. Back at home in Australia, they’ve played the biggest festivals on the circuit such as the Queenscliff Music Festival, Big Blues Day Out, Perth International Arts Festival and Brunswick Music Festival to name a few.
An evening in the company of Claymore is always an unforgettable experience. Their live shows demand that you are on your feet from the outset – from the penetrating beats of the bodhran in the battle songs of the Jacobite rebellion, to the hypnotising drone of the pipes in the evocative love ballads of Scotland and Ireland, audiences will find themselves conquered by the most fiery and delicate textures of Celtic music.
