Addison has recorded in Nashville, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia and began offering full length concerts in 2008 after launching his first long playing CD titled. “Addison Locke…What Have You Done”. He is honoured to have recorded his CD in the Dave Gunning Studios

Addison knows that the key to joy in the music industry is found ‘on the ground’ singing for live audiences. He holds to his idea that the finest artists are also fine people filled with genuine affection and respect for their fans.

Quiet and humble by nature, Addison offers sincere and wildly true stories about where his songs originate and the characters that inspired them. Those who attend Addison’s live concerts leave his shows knowing him and leave feeling that he genuinely loves each one of them.

7:30 – 9:30 pm

Drawing on the rich repertoire of East Coast Celtic tradition of intricate instrumentals, sea shanties, Irish and Scottish songs, and original compositions, Celtic Rant have forged a polished sound around the guitar, fiddle, pipes, mandolin, and excitingly robust vocal harmonies. They have been performing in festivals and clubs throughout Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and PEI and have been building a steady base since 2006 – the year the band started.

They recorded the debut “Celtic Rant” and follow up recording “Encore” with producer Don Chapman. The newest CD “A Clancy Rantcy” is a tribute to the legendary Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem. “A Clancy Rantcy” takes Celtic Rant into exciting new territory.

Celtic Rant consists of Victor Fraser on vocals, guitar, tenor banjo and fiddle, Rob Wigle on vocals, guitar, mandolin and bouzouki, and Rob Greene, who also does vocals and plays bass guitar, fiddle and pipes.
