BECCON is a an ensemble playing music in the Celtic and American traditions in the Portland, Oregon area. We like both traditional and original tunes that have emotional appeal and memorable melodies. The music in our sets span a variety of tempos and instruments, including fiddle, guitar, whistles, recorders, hammered dulcimer, mandolin, keyboard, and various percussion instruments.
BECCON performs at receptions, celebrations, company parties, fund raisers, fairs...etc. We can play in the background, to support the atmosphere you want to create; or, in the foreground, when we get to explain our tunes and interact with the audience - whatever is appropriate for your event. If you are interested in having BECCON perform at your venue, wedding or special event, please contact us.
This self-titled CD is our first recording project, and covers the full spectrum of the music we enjoy playing.
You'll find a variety of Celtic and American tunes, but interpreted in the BECCON style - fresh arrangements, instrumental variety and musical variety.
You can learn more about the CD and place an order right from our site at our Recordings page.
