Fellswater is Boston’s dynamic Celtic music ensemble. We play a wide range of music from Traditional to modern compositions that draws from the heritage of all the Celtic nations, especially Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Galicia and Canada. Our instrumentation changes depending on the musical selection and includes vocals, whistles, Irish flute, guitar, octave mandolin, violin, cello, nyckelharpa, Celtic harp, Scottish smallpipes, border pipes, acoustic bass guitar and percussion.
Formed in late 2008, Fellswater has performed for audiences ranging from 20 to 9,000. The ensemble has delighted audiences at New Hampshire Highland Games , Maine Highland Games, Blackstone River Theatre, Boston Celtic Music Fest, Colonial Williamsburg, Club Passim and the Backroom at the Burren concert series. The band has had two overseas tours: Canada in 2015 to perform in the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo and Scotland in 2018 to perform in the prestigious Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and present two shows in the renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
