Texas-based Needfire is a Celtic-folk-rock band formed in 2004 by Ed Walewski (bass, dulcimer, mandolins). The group includes some of the region’s top traditional Celtic and rock musicians: 4-time California state fiddle champion Linda Relph (fiddle, vocals), Kevin Hanlon (guitars, vocals), and Trey Ware (drums).
The source and inspiration for Needfire’s music is predominantly traditional Celtic folk melodies and lyrics updated with modern rock backbeats and pop hooks. Yearly touring throughout the U.S., a fresh modern rock edge, and uplifting live performances have helped awaken a much wider interest in traditional music by music fans of all ages and critics worldwide.
