Keltic Wine

From: Leixlip, Dublin
Active: 1973-75

Style: Celtic Rock



Celtic rock quintet inspired by Mushroom and Horslips who self-released a single on their own Vintage label which is well worth tracking down. The labels address is in Leixlip, suggesting the band came from there. Managed by John Dee. Still gigging in 1975.

Thanks to a recently discovered picture sleeve for their sole 45, we can add another photo of the band:

Listings for The Hangar, Galway from March (left) and September (right) 1973.
"Strongly tipped to outclass Horslips soon". "First time in Galway" indeed.
