If you want traditional Irish music for your wedding or special event, then Celticado is the go to band.  Based in western MA, they have over 30 years of performance experience to offer!

The ensemble, based in western central Massachusetts, performs lively acoustic traditional celtic dance music and sings songs from the old country and beyond.

Instrumentation includes fiddle, guitar, bouzouki, mandolin, and banjo.  The group performs a mix of traditional and roots music.

Celticado is an all acoustic Celtic duo based in the Connecticut River Valley of western Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut.  With fiddler Adam R Sweet and guitarist James Bunting, the duo specializes in performing delightful Celtic music for weddings, parties and more.
Jim and Adam first met at an Irish session at the Harp in North Amherst, MA the winter of 2005.  Adam was impressed by Jim's non-traditional approach to the guitar.  Clearly he was playing it in a non-standard tuning, his fingers coaxing runs and arpeggios mixed with chords.  Jim was invited to join Woodkerne, a quartet of string players at that time.  A year later, the concept of a light but disciplined Celtic duo was discussed and Celticado was born.
