MEET ELISE KRESS,
creator and proprietress of Celtic Music for Your Wedding. Elise is a singer, flute player and whistle player, and has been a performer all her life. She’s been a member of several well known and loved Celtic bands including Skylark, MoonFire and The New St. George.
Over the course of her career, Elise has appeared in nearly every major venue in Washington, and throughout the Northeast United States, including The Kennedy Center, Strathmore Hall, the Birchmere, and the Philadelphia Folk Festival. She has recorded many CDs, including the award winning Present, Past, and Future (Best Celtic Album of the Year).
Elise has played with the finest musicians in the area, all of whom are professional working artists. With numerous awards and CDs to their credit, they represent an amazing array of incredible musicality and passion. These friends and colleagues are the people she draws on to complete the musical groups for your event.
Elise’s love of the music and her delight in performing gives her a special connection to the brides, grooms and families with whom she works. She understands deeply how important the right music is. After all, she had Celtic music at her own wedding!
When not involved in music, Elise loves making jewelry, exploring art museums, reading, traveling abroad and playing with her standard poodle Seamus. (Photos available upon request.)
