Celtic Rant is a Nova Scotian trio, consisting of Victor Fraser, Rob Wigle, and Rob Greene, specializing in traditional Celtic tunes and folk lyrics, as well as original songs with a Roots/Traditional flavour. Celtic Rant perform stunning harmonies and are proficient on various instruments, including guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, bouzouki, and pipes, while their exuberant onstage camaraderie and good, old-fashioned Maritime storytelling make their live concerts a truly entertaining experience. Their latest album Ornaments was nominated for Traditional/Roots Recording of the Year at the Music Nova Scotia Awards in 2018.

Celtic Rant’s live show covers every possible path along the Celtic music tradition, from original compositions to sea shanties, traditional jig sets, and Clancy Brothers covers. Playing almost a dozen instruments between them, the trio sang in resounding and effortless harmonies. They include first-class storytelling between songs, honouring the other great Celtic tradition.” – Inverness Oran
