I am looking for masterful jazz pianists, upright bassists, jazz guitarists, and versatile brass players (trumpet and/or saxophone).

Celtic Musicians Wanted
Celtic Music is still very popular, and there is a shortage of really good bands willing to tastefully mix traditional with a more modern rhythmic feel. I'm looking for passionate Celtic musicians who are familiar with a large enough repertoire to be able to do three long sets of popular favorites. I am seeking fiddle players, harp, mandolin, guitar, concertina, ullean pipes, flute, bodhran, and singers
