A Very Merry Celtic Twist Christmas to you all!

Well, Christmas time is here again and we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas with these 2 offerings from Celtic Twist's forthcoming album "A Celtic Twist Christmas"
We were really hoping to be able to have the full album ready for this year, 2012, but due to the upheaval of an international move we are not able to do so. The album will come out in November 2013, so keep your eyes peeled!!!
The first of the 2 pieces we have for you is called "Snowfall"...it is an original Holland and Palmley composition. We hope you enjoy it!


The second of the 2 pieces we are offering you from the forthcoming album is a well-known medieval carol called "The Coventry Carol".
For any further information as to how to book your copy for next Christmas, or to purchase any other albums available from Celtic Twist just drop us a line via the contact form on our website, the address of which you will find at the top right of this blog...
Thanks for listening and a very Happy Christmas/Yule-tide to you all.
Phil and Dave of Celtic Twist

This last year has been very interesting. We have relocated to Scotland and are now based in the Strathclyde area. A wonderful and beautiful place which has already inspired "Dreaming of Arran Skies" ...
and much more. Forthcoming CD in the making.Watch this space!
We have already met many talented musicians in the area...if you are local and want to get in touch please feel free. Also, if you have a live-music venue and are interested in contacting us we'd be happy to hear from you. All the best for now...Phil and Dave
