Arvel Bird

NASHVILLE, TN (September 20, 2011) –Master fiddler Arvel Bird has returned to his Celtic folk rock roots for his latest album, Celtic Nation, featuring 11 riveting Celtic tunes. From lively tunes that will start your toes a’ tappin', to lyrical ballads, Arvel’s vocals and masterful violin make this a must have CD.

Continuing to blaze a new path in Indie music, Bird’s renditions of traditional Celtic tunes and his powerful self-penned tributes to Celtic folk rock music are a testament to his precise musicianship. This unique Celtic fusion that honors the heritage of his ancestors explodes with riveting musical hooks and additive melodies that leave audiences dancing in the aisles.

From traditional Celtic tunes like “Barnyard O’Delgaty” or “P Stands for Paddy” to original scores like “Many Clans, One Fire” and “Fire and Stone,” this vocal and instrumental album is lighthearted and powerful.

“My music is about blending cultures, blending instruments and blending sounds to create a fusion of instrumentation that is thoroughly Celtic, but with a twist,” said Arvel Bird. “On Celtic Nation, I put my own touch on some traditional Celtic tunes, and mixed them with music that I composed to create a journey through the British Isles through song.”

Since its September release, Celtic Nation is quickly becoming Bird’s best-selling album to date. To purchase or download Celtic Nation, visit, or
