A long, long time ago…a surviving clan of the ancient Celts spoke of a legend about two followers of King Arthur who vowed to carry on his mission of joy, gladness, peace and adventure in their music to the new world. The King crowned their mission and named them,…..CELTIC SHORES. “Celtic Shores” was formed in 2010 by native Pittsburgher’s, Matt Hughes and Susan Borowski. Folk tunes from Ireland and Scotland fill the air when these two musicians get together. Tradition can be heard in many of their songs, as well as the creative element in their original songs. Both Sue and Matt are accomplished musicians and songwriters and have published CD’s. This witty and whimsical duo will brighten your day and bring a smile to your face as they perform for you. For more information about “Celtic Shores” please visit them on Facebook and on Reverbnation.
