A contemporary CELTIC ROCK band with nine members, their rock-solid rhythm section powers the groove for bagpipes together with electric guitars, keyboards, and powerful vocals providing a fun night of energetic and very danceable music.
The band is based in Edmonton, and past venues speak to the wide appeal of their sound. Celtic Fusion Illusion has played at large Highland Festivals, in theatres such as the Winspear Centre, Festival Place, in the amphitheatre at William Hawrelak Park and many other venues. The band has recently released their first studio recorded album; “Walk the Tweed” and is working on new material for their next album.
Band Members include: Alan McGee (keyboards/backup vocals), Cam Prowse (bagpipes), Cody Forsberg (drums), Dave Trew (bagpipes), Mark Lepine (lead vocalist), Percy Marshall (guitar), Randy Forsberg (bass guitar), Rocco Macri (guitar) and Sarah Knutsen (lead vocalist)
They are often accompanied by the Celtic Ceilidh dancers who have performed for Disneyland and Disney World. They trained and competed in Ireland and Scotland in 2015 with a first place win at the Dance Strong competition.
