PerKelt is a Pagan Speed Folk band based in London, UK. The crazily fast, complicated, yet powerful rhythms and melodies became their trademark over the years of touring festivals in the UK and Europe. In the balance between the brainy and the straightforward, PerKelt music blends together the sound of tribal drums, haunting vocals and the unrivalled duels of flute and fiddle. Wrapped together in pagan poetry and strong message of Freedom, Passion and Love, PerKelt is a band firmly rooted in their skills and talent, yet elusively beyond physical limits…

With four critically acclaimed albums released to date, various awards received from the music industry, hundreds of performances all over the Europe, and countless dedicated fans all over the World, PerKelt are:
