Celtus Live 2000 (Evangeline GEL4020)

Celtus Live 2000The fourth album from Celtus featuring all live tracks with 2 Bonus Tracks. A must have. Starting with Navigator at full belt in front of an audience. Into The Pilgrim slow, soulful and the audience quiet and listening intently. We have Wide Awake next to make sure “we are not sleeping”. The Awakening, an instrumental from John, performed beautifully live, The fifth track is Believe, again you can imagine the audience listening to the words and watching John, Pat and Dan pour their heart and soul into their music. Portrait next, a true favourite leading into the enigmatic Cathedral, the live version bringing John into a new ending with his bass guitar. Stunning. The crowd love it! A true favourite from now on. Purple Diadem ends the Live tracks section and we then have the two bonus tracks. Don’t be Fooled, made me cry the first time I heard it, finishing off last but certainly not least Pat playing Dear Irish Boy. Wonderful. A traditional Instrumental perfect for the extraordinary talent of Pat on his grandfather’s violin. A wealth of talent shown in this album. A must have for any Celtus Collection.
