Celtic Folk Rock

Castletown

Portland, OR based "Castletown" has a sound best described as "Energetic Celtic Folk Rock," blending the heart and soul of traditional Irish reels with modern folk, blues, jazz and country influences with Robert Richter on guitar and vocals, Katie Lubiens on fiddle, Casey McBride on drums and percussion and Willi Jaam on bass. Their new CD "In Reel Time" was released in early 2016.

The group has been lighting up stages around the Pacific Northwest and beyond with performances at the Northwest Folklife in Seattle, Yachats Celtic Music Festival, LaGrande Celtic Festival and Highland Games, Salem Art Fair, Vancouver Recycled Arts Festival, Astoria Crab, Seafood and Wine Festival, Portland and Eugene Saturday Markets, and Galway Bay Irish Pub in Ocean Shores, WA. They have also toured California and Arizona.

Native Portlander Richter began teaching himself guitar at the age of 12 when he purchased a Sears "Silvertone" guitar from a neighbor for $5 and the promise to mow his lawn for a month. Over the years Richter has become known as a versatile singer/songwriter and guitarist writing the original Celtic influenced songs appearing on Castletown's CD.

Katie Lubiens originally from the San Francisco Bay Area is a talented fiddler and graduated from the University of Nevada Reno after attending on a music scholarship. She is a creative player noted for her passionate and energetic style.

Casey McBride also from Portland is well known as a versatile drummer and percussionist performing in multiple projects.

Willi Jaam as well from Portland is a skilled bass player with the ability play many different genres.
