Celsi, Bragg & Maitland
From Los Angeles – pop-Americana artists Anny Celsi and Nelson Bragg team up with Dublin’s Duncan Maitland to form a high-energy, high-flying trio. It’s Brill Building hooks, Byrds-y harmonies and Beatle-esque psychedelia!
Celsi’s style has been described as “beatnik cool,” “pop-noir,” and “slightlydelic pop jangle,” with comparisons to Suzanne Vega, Jackie DeShannon and Chrissie Hynde. While Bragg’s day job for 14 years was percussionist-vocalist with The Brian Wilson Band, between tours he somehow found time to release two critically acclaimed albums of his own, most notably “Day Into Night.” Maitland has plied his 12-string with pop heroes Picturehouse, Pugwash and XTC. His “Lullabies for the 21st Century” is “a trip through the acid-tinged English foothills of rainyday sunshine pop.”
Celsi, Bragg & Maitland: The Road To Glasgow is a celebration of their past and future adventures touring in the UK, with new songs from all three writers, previously unreleased covers of songs by Bob Dylan, Paul Kelly, and Peter Holsapple, and a few choice tunes recorded live at Glasgow's Elba Sessions during their 2011 tour.
