St. James' Gate is a Central Alberta based band that formed in 2001 and has been bringing Celtic music to the people of Western Canada ever since. Their music can be described as Celtic-Rock and contains everything from Scottish/Irish songs to more modern Celtic rock/punk sounds. St. James' Gate is comprised of 6 band members from varying backgrounds, all bringing unique instrumentation and style to create a distinctive brand of music. The bagpipes, button accordion, and tin whistle add Celtic flavor to a full complement of guitars, drums, bass, and other unique stringed instruments.
St. James' Gate has released 4 CD's over the last 15 years and is in the process of putting pen to paper once again to write some original tunes for a 5th CD. Their music can all be purchased at their shows or online at Itunes.
