Blackthorne Ceilidh Band

The Blackthorne Ceilidh Band of Rochester, New York, draws its music from the traditional celtic repertoire of Ireland and Scotland as well as from Canada and New England. Blackthorne artfully combines the strong ceili dance style that Frank Murphy brought with him from County Mayo, Ireland, with music Ted McGraw learned as he grew up in Rochester’s Irish community
