Pan-Celtic from Canada
2013 Jack Richardson Music Award Winners for Traditional Folk-Roots
Nominated 7 times for Traditional Folk/Roots and World Music Awards
Since their debut in 2008, RANT MAGGIE RANT has consistently won over audiences at festivals, folk clubs, town halls, churches, concert halls and symphonic stages. The original goal was to take traditional Celtic music as the foundation, then liberally and unapologetically colour outside the prescribed lines. In a nut-shell, have fun!

Traditionalists love their approach, as they respect the time honoured styles. Drawing on the music from the seven Celtic nations, the obvious Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall, Wales, and the lesser known Isle of Mann, Galicia(Spain) and Brittany(France), as well as from Quebec and Canada's East Coast, new Celtic music listeners are drawn to RANT MAGGIE RANT's fusion of World influences. The ensemble moves effortlessly from Irish jigs to Galician munieras, from Scottish marches to Breton an dros, driving them with Latin and Mediterranean rhythms, African hand drumming and percussion, blues/rock guitar backdrops, revved up tempos, unexpected time changes, and a unique rhythmic attack. Their repertoire combines contemporary compositions with traditional tunes, often blending them together to deliver an intoxicating performance.
