Celeste performs with her group in California and on the East coast with Four Celtic Voices. Their CD, “Four Leaf Clover” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard World Music Chart and placed in the Top Ten on multiple Heatseekers Charts.
Los Angeles Times exclaimed, “Celeste’s voice is a warm and pleasant instrument…” Ray’s performances on double Bowed Psaltery are of the highest technical caliber and her vocals are also a big part of her signature sound.”
Ms. Ray performed at Carnegie Hall in New York under the direction of famed composer John Rutter, Government House in Brisbane, Australia, and as a guest artist including the Pete Seeger Show in New York City. QVC Television featured Celeste and Four Celtic Voices; she currently resides in her home state of California, producing Celtic seasonal concerts with her new ensemble.
