About Us

The Rare Ould Times is a collection of musical friends who matured globally and now live in the Colorado Springs area.  This group shares a deep love of traditional Irish and Scottish music, both vocal and instrumental, featuring strong harmonies and fleet fingers.   Members have performed, studied and played their music separately in Ireland, Iceland, Japan, China, Costa Rica, Thailand, South Africa and all over the United States, and came together at Colorado Springs' lively traditional Celtic sessions.  Happy songs of rebellion, war and drinking, sad songs of love, exile and transportation, sea chanties, dance tunes, airs and planxties ... an all-ages show. The Rare Ould Times Celtic band is available for public events as well as special occasions such as weddings and private parties.  Email info@the-rare-ould-times.com for more information.   session2_rot
