Celtic Legacy was formed by Dave Morrissey and Dave Boylan in 1998.
Despite never having a record contract (although the band was offered small recording deals on 6 occasions) the band utilised its resources to fund and record 3 albums up to 2008. The band line-up changed several times from 1997-2009 with the only constant members being the two founder members.
Of the 3 albums the band released during the initial 12-year period, Resurrection - the second album is widely regarded as the band's high water mark. It was voted album of the year on several sites in 2003/2004 and the title track has become the band's signature tune. The album received incredible reviews upon release and is still regarded with huge affection by both die hard fans and casual listeners.
In 2008, after a prolonged search for a stable line-up, Legacy recorded Guardian Of Eternity album. A year after the release of the album, Celtic Legacy finished as a gigging entity, with the various members going their separate ways.
A new single entitled 'My People' was released on August 4 2014. On September 28 2014 it was announced that a new Celtic Legacy album entitled The Lie of the Land would be released during Winter 2014. This album was released on December 17 2014.
The Legacy goes on and on!
