Group Description

"Comhlan Oganta" is Scots Gaelic meaning, "Youth Band". Started in 1999 in Austin, Texas by a group of High School classical orchestra members interested in playing Celtic music and performing at Irish and Scottish events.

The not for profit organization is sanctioned by the "Austin Celtic Association", "Gaelic League of Austin" and the "Texas Highlanders".

Members form small bands a perform free of charge for Festivals, Schools, Special Events or a Business.

Membership is open to ANY Austin metro area, Junior High, High School or Home Schooled student presently playing in their band or orchestra. Many of the kids receive individual instruction from professional Celtic musicians. Some of the kids have also taken workshops from well known artists such as Elke Baker and Alasdair Fraser.

A real crowd pleaser is seeing kids, several in kilts!, playing Fiddle, Celtic Cello, Flute Whistle and even the Highland Bagpipes.

Contact us if you are interested in watching us perform, joining us or want to start a similar group in your town.
