We know what you’re probably thinking…

“Not ANOTHER educational-family-folk-classical music duo/trio where the performers play oboe, steel-string guitar, Celtic harp, autoharp, ukulele, mandolin, electric bass, bodhran, djembe, banjo, English horn, tin whistle and bagpipes, plus stepdance, dramatize original stories set to music, and do a whole bunch of humourous songs as well as lots of music.”

Well, if that’s the case, you’d be wrong, because honestly, this group is different!  Versatile musicians whose goal is to bring Celtic-rooted music, song, dance, drama, stories and culture to audiences of all ages, the Rathskallions have a special focus on working with schools and within communities, and have earned kudos for their concerts, workshops and collaborations.

We invite you to explore, listen and check out our educational and musical merchandise.
