The Gateway

 the gateway creates an eclectic combination of rich Celtic tones and textures from traditional instruments such as flute, recorder, oboe and cello with the sound of world instruments such as Bohdran, dumbek, sitar guitar and pennywhitsles. Celeste's dynamic compositions feature her lyric and vocal stylings along with impressive piano and psaltery performances. It is an decidedly international musical adventure of ancient myths and legends as well as creating her own new ones.
