The Barefoot Ceili Band

The Barefoot Ceili Band plays traditional Irish music for sessions, concerts and dancing. They have toured in Ireland, Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Peru and elsewhere with the McConnell School of Irish Dance. Current members Cathy Rayner, D’Arcy Stearns, David Strang and Jordan McConnell have extensive experience with Irish and other traditional music. Their name comes from a recording session where the foot-tapping with shoes was too loud, hence bare feet. Besides, it’s cooler!
