The California-based group has toured since 2000 as a multi-instrumental acoustic band, releasing twelve CDs along the way.

She transports you with a spell into another time and place, where the banshee wails and lovers embrace. Haunting melodies, stirring passion, and evocative storytelling are what you'll find with Amelia's music As always, this 13th Annual Celtic Christmas Celebration will capture the traditional spirit of the season and warm the hearts of all who attend.
