Cleghorn blends original folk/rock songwriting with high energy Celtic fiddle and bagpipe tunes at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 15, at the Allen Public Library. This father-son team features Texas southern rock with Celtic melodies. Original songwriting and high energy shows are among the band's most appreciated talents.
The performances of Cleghorn have enamored audiences at the North Texas Irish Festival, Austin Celtic Festival, State Fair of Texas, Texas Scottish Festival and more. Dylan and John have been acclaimed as charismatic performers who even go as far as leaving the stage to play among the crowd during their concerts.
The Celtic Music News review of Cleghorn's album states: "The robust and pristine sound of Dylan Cleghorn's fiddle is wrapped in heavy pop rock rhythms that approach anthemic intensity. John Cleghorn, adding his original songwriting, screaming guitar riffs and golden vocal melodies, reveals himself as a man who truly knows rock."
Cleghorn released their CD Celtic America in 2018.
While playing for the band “The Kangs”, John opened for Cheap Trick, The Producers, Bachman Turner Overdrive and more.
Sponsored by the Allen Public Library, the concert is free. The library is located 300 N. Allen Dr. Call 214-509-4911 for additional information.
