The Chivalrous Crickets is a Celtic and Americana folk band creating at the intersection of traditional English, Celtic, and American folk, and early (Baroque) European art music. The band's members, who all sing, play instruments, and arrange and compose for the group, come from backgrounds of folk and classical music. Their skills and interests combine to form a unique sound centered on rich vocal harmonies, diverse timbral blends of modern and historical instruments, exuberant arrangements, and provoking and innovative programming of traditional, original, and historical music. Formed in 2018, and based between eastern PA and central NJ, the Crickets revel in playing sundry venues from history museums to schooners and canal barges, Early Music concert series to Celtic folk festivals, churches to barns, and speakeasies to theaters, ranging from Maryland to Maine and beyond. Audiences enjoy five band members, all trained vocalists, and a total of 14 instruments (ancient and modern). The Crickets offer a varied array of performance options, from festival sets to Christmas concerts to shows built completely around specific ballad traditions.
