 Ric Blair, founder of The Celts, was a promising jazz major at the University of Cincinnati’s prestigious College Conservatory of Music until a chance encounter changed the entire course of his life. “A buddy of mine said, ‘Hey there’s this Irish group playing tonight,’ American-born and Nashville based Blair remembers.  It took a little prodding, but he agreed to give the concert a shot. “I opened the doors, and people were literally dancing on the tables,” says Blair. “The music was so happy. As soon as I heard the pipes and Irish whistle, something in my blood hit me and said ‘this is what I want to do’.”  The Celts, pack concert halls all across North America.  “I’m proud of my Irish/Scottish roots, but I am equally proud of my American music roots.  So, our music has become a product of merging the two cultures.”
