Celtic bow, breath and beat entertaining Greater Seattle
The Fire Inside performs smoldering Celtic music with heel-clicking intensity. Drawing from a collection of traditional and trend-setting influences, The Fire Inside will stoke your musical fire with their fiddle, uilleann pipes, bodhran, whistles, guitar, concertina, mandolin and scorching vocals. They perform throughout Greater Seattle and Portland - from pubs to country clubs, private parties, public festivals and weddings too.
Our new CD "Spark" will be available December 2014. Listen to tracks from this thematic album here.
Spark offers stories of departure from Ireland in the 1800’s. They tell of heartbreaking separation from loved ones, the optimistic pursuit of fortune in the Nevada silver mines, and the timeless human aspiration for improving one’s future.

The Fire Inside all began with Carol Whitaker, the band's first penny whistler, reaching out to the rest of us with the idea of forming a Celtic band. That was back in late 2010. We met for our first rehearsal in late January 2011 and six weeks later had our debut performance in Issaquah on St. Paddy's Day! Some band members have come and gone as we have evolved - each one a treasured memory and much appreciated part of our continuing journey.
