Beltaine''s Fire is a totally unique band, spanning the gap between traditional and modern, old and new, Griots and Bards, MC''s and storytellers.
The sound is based on an unlikely but tantalizing fusion - melodies rooted in the traditional music of Ireland, Scotland, and Appalachia, jazzy melodic bass lines, hip hop rhythms, and some of the most intelligent and insightful politically-oriented hip hop lyrics you''re likely to hear anytime soon. The result will astound you and force you to reconsider everything you think you know about the boundaries that separate genres. These songs will make you think, make you dance, make you look at the world in a new way. And at the end of the day isn''t that what good music is supposed to do?
