Ockham’s Razor is a Seattle based Celtic fusion band that blends influences of Celtic and Irish tradition with rock, pop, gypsy, punk, jazz, bluegrass, and folk elements to carve out a unique and indelible niche in the Celtic folk genre.

Hailed as both “Turbo Celtic” and “Ethno Punk,” since 2006 Ockham’s Razor has performed with notable bands like Young Dubliners, Enter the Haggis and Paperboys, and has even performed alongside Irish music luminaries, the Chieftains.

With three studio albums and a live album under their belt, their music has been featured on radio and podcasts in places as far flung as India and Australia as well as the US, Canada, and the rest of North America, England, Scotland, Ireland and the rest of Europe.

They have been featured on the Portland OR based PDXPosed and Alaska Airline’s In Flight Entertainment Channel, Next Stop.
