Ga Greine means sunbeam in Gaelic. It is a ray of sunshine and is the inspiration of hope for a new day and creativity from within. Ga Greine was formed in 2016, embracing the traditional Celtic music origins along with bluegrass. Abigail Baker, age 9, is on fiddle bringing Ga Greine sounds of Cape Breton with double stops and tunes from Scotland and Ireland. She has been playing fiddle since age 3. Her mother, Deborah Yost, plays Irish flute and penny whistle along with Galician bagpipes. Charlie Stacey's guitar and vocals bring to Ga Greine a refined sound and years of experience in playing in the Celtic genre. Ga Greiene is a fresh new band that inspires to play traditional tunes with a fresh new twist that is sure to make you want to get up and dance!
