Let the beautiful voice of Celia Ramsay entrance you...or make you laugh out loud. Whether singing unaccompanied, or beside any of her amazing friends, her hauntingly lovely singing will charm and delight you. Maybe she'll sing some of her original songs. Or maybe she'll sing traditional music on the ole LapTop Stage! Whatever she brings you, you'll be glad to spend half an hour with her.

Says Celia, “I have always loved the music of Scotland & Ireland: the skreeling of bagpipes and dance bands, but most of all the unaccompanied singers whose voices insistently reached right into your heart. The music is timeless in its pain, joy, dismay, or humor, and that’s what I like about it. These are not merely the songs of my father’s Scottish ancestors; they are the voices of the universal human condition.

Celia Ramsay is fast becoming a popular name in the SF Bay Area music scene. She has performed at numerous house concerts, the San Francisco Free Folk Festival, the Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley, and the Palms Playhouse in Winters. She is also locally known as a Contra Dance Caller—she teaches this New England style folk dance and “calls” or prompts the dancers to live music, from Monterey to Ukiah.

What others have to say about her recordings:
“Lord, lord, lord. Celia, what an incredible voice you have! The music on this (CD) is just lovely. I highly recommend this; the tunes and songs are well selected; obviously each song means a great deal to you.” --Ray Edlund, KPFA

"A singer I’ve not heard before, Celia Ramsay . . . I’m really impressed by what I’ve heard of this album; she sings with a really very Scottish inflection." --Roland Goodbody, WUNH

"...These are mostly love songs, and Celia has a lovely voice...an interesting collection, sung in a classical style for the most part, with phrasings and inflections from the Scottish dialect. It's an enjoyable collection." --J.W. McClure, Victory Music
