About Us

Celtic Wood and Wires is a five member band from the Williamsport area of central PA. The band formed in early 2018 and has evolved into the band as all of our fans know it today.  We play upbeat, traditional songs and tunes from Ireland, Scotland and a wee bit of Appalachian.  We do have a few originals of our own and are working on more.  We've been playing throughout central and south-central PA.  We have a great following and keep the crowds during our shows.  We released our first album in September, "Close The Back Door", which is available on CD along with all of the major digital platforms including Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, YouTube, Pandora and approximately 11 others.

On March 17th, 2022, we received the Spot Award for "Best World Music" from the Central Pennsylvania Music Awards hall of Fame. We are honored and humbled to receive such an award, especially with all of the amazing talent here in Pennsylvania. We thank those that nominated us along with the CMPHOF for recognizing what we do!

We play all types of venues and events..... Local pubs & wineries, backyard parties, trad sessions, weddings, festivals, etc. Watch our page for the latest shows. And should you have an inquiry about us playing for your event, please reach out to us. Our CONTACT page has a form, email address, phone number and USPS mail address. Even if you would just like to shout out a hello, it's always welcome!

Thank you to our families, friends and fans! We are here today because of your support!
