Tramor (Overseas) is the new Welsh American Acoustic Project of John Good, formally of Oceans Apart.

John Good is well known throughout the West, South, Midwest and in his native Wales as a multi-instrumentalist, Welsh piper, singer/songwriter, storyteller, composer and poet. A veteran of many Celtic festivals and concerts, including Estes Park, Chicago Celtic Fest, Sea Shanty Festival San Diego and Highland Games Denver, he brings the subtly different flavor of traditional Welsh music to the contemporary stage.

Along with friends like mandolin virtuoso Billy Parker, a Tramor show is an event not to be missed.
