‘Oran Mor’ is a Scots-Gaelic term that refers to a “Great Melody” woven throughout Celtic mythology – an ancestral song that echoes in the present for all who listen for it.
The musical group Oran Mor adopted its name to highlight their rich repertoire of Scottish and Irish music, some of which dates back to the 1700s, along with more contemporary Celtic, Americana, popular, and original tunes tossed into the mix.
Musicians include Tom Cochran (guitar/vocals), Karen Mills-Cochran (guitar/recorders/vocals), Jonathan Satz (bass/vocals), and Bobby Campbell (flute/sax/percussion/vocals).
With music that feature both modern and traditional instruments, along with exquisite vocal harmonies, Oran Mor transports listeners to distant shores, telling tales of beguiling cultures and
filled with irresistible rhythms for the aspiring dancer in all of us.
