WELCOME TO THE CELTIC KITCHEN PARTY! Our goal is to continue the successful SONG OF THE MONTH CLUB supported entirely by Patrons. So, what exactly is a patron?
You know how theaters and museums have a plaque listing all the people who have helped them out? EXACTLY THAT! Synonyms for patron might be sponsor or supporter and by definition a patron is a person who gives financial or other support to a person, organization or activity. And so... please consider being a Patron. JOIN today and gain elite access to any number of exclusive rewards, access to the back catalogue of great tunes AND you buy us the time to do what we love - which is CREATE music, while YOU get to LISTEN to even more CELTIC MUSIC!

CONSIDER PLACING YOUR NAME ON OUR WALL OF SUPPORTERS BY VISITING OUR ONLINE STORE AND JOINING TODAY!
If you prefer monthly membership you can also join us on PATREON

Welcome to The Celtic Kitchen Party!
FIDDLE

Tedd CHEW...

rises to the occasion mimicking perfectly the riffs and sounds of our top 40 tunes but with our own "celtic" flavouring. Not only is he a talented fiddle player but he also covers the low end of our vocal harmonies. You can see (and hear) Tedd's passion for music all over the surrounding Kingston area, in projects (too numerous to name). He loves performing with the ensemble group CKP and looks forward to sharing his musical talent with you!
GUITAR

Andrew VANHORN...

has shared the stage with Don Cochrane and Trevor Strong (Arrogant Worms), opened for Jason Blaine, Luther Wright and Mike Trebilcock (Killjoys) and recorded with Kelli Trottier. VANHORN is comfortable infront of the mic and predominantly plays the acoustic guitar (though he has been known to pick up the bass). He has great memories of touring the East Coast with Vile Richard and looks forward to more recording with CKP.
Bagpipes

Colin SKINNER...

is our relative newcomer to this ensemble group and has really beefed up our Scottish feel! He is a founding member of the Devil’s Own Pipe Band and has over 30 years of piping experience. He has played with several Military and Civilian Pipe Bands and has performed for international dignitaries including Queen Elizabeth II. Neighbours are always ringing his doorbell in the middle of the night – fortunately, he is usually up practicing his pipes for the next CKP show.
Drums

Martyn PIPER...

developed a firm foundation in highland and African drumming and spent a number of years touring Canada performing and facilitating clinics with ‘Sssnap’ (based out of Prince George, BC). After moving to Ontario Martyn became a member of the P.O.W.R. Pipes & Drums and alternative rock band Fossils & Gospels. Martyn continues to cement a reputation as a soul filled, outside of the box player. Martyn's goal remains to create a solid bed for the rest of CKP to build on.

Jenna & Adam Nelson, Kingston ON

"The Celtic Kitchen Party delivered a fabulous variety of music and added a positive and upbeat atmosphere to the evening. We hired the band for their celtic/folk/country style of music and playing, which was fitting for our East Coast theme. The music was lively and the band was engaged and very interactive with the crowd. I highly recommend this band for future events and enjoyed every minute of their playing. They also showed incredible dedication as they played back-to-back events that evening supporting military functions. Thank-you Celtic Kitchen Party for a night to remember."

"The groups performed their celtic flavoured repertoire that included a number of beloved singalong tunes including The Irish Rover, Farewell to Nova Scotia, Rattlin' Bog, and Dirty Old Town brought out the Irish in many listeners who sang along on many tunes.
