Eastbound (Krista & Jay Luddington, featuring Pat Lamey)
We are excited to start things off with Eastbound. The band is up of a husband and wife duo, Krista and Jay Luddington. With an east coast flavor, they perform many different genres including a combination of Celtic, Country, and light rock. Eastbound is known for their unique sound and tight harmonies, and you can find them anywhere from pubs and lounges to dance halls and more. A nice mixture of guitar, fiddle, and vocals, you will no doubt find yourself on the dance floor "getting down with Eastbound!" They will be joined at Celtic Oktoberfest 2017 with longtime friend and fellow musician Pat Lamey! Pat adds a layer to Eastbound like no other with his powerful vocals and unbelievable guitar work. Pat also performs both solo as well as with his partner Heather Richards, and Eastbound is very excited to have him along for the ride at Celtic Oktoberfest 2017!
