About the Band

In the increasingly homogeneous world of Celtic music, Fonnmhõr’s approach is unique.

Modal guitars and unconventional percussion strategies are used to propel original songs and dance tunes that reflect the influence of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany and other parts of the Celtic diaspora. Fonnmhõr uses electronics and atmospherics to broaden the impact of their music. Their entertaining and entrancing live shows have helped them build a strong and ever increasing following.

Fonnmhõr’s debut CD has garnered several awards, including a “Jammie” for Best CD from WYCE (Grand Rapids, MI). Special guests performing on the CD include Pat Broaders (Bohola) and Don Brown (The Verve Pipe).
