Welcome to a Celtic Music Festival featuring music from around the Celtic Lands, alongside music inspired by or expressing Celtic themes.
Today you’ll hear a wide variety of Celtic and Celtic-influenced material, with orchestral works like Shaun Davey’s Brendan Voyage; a wide range of performances by traditional Celtic artists; and music inspired by the Celtic heritage. There are also some large-scale performances from artists like Celtic Woman, Celtic Thunder and even the Cincinnati Pops! And listen out for some of the Celtic/Goddess themed pieces from Nashville-based artist Laura Powers’ Legends of the Goddess trilogy, along with Rutland Boughton’s seldom-heard classic, first performed in Glastonbury between the wars, The Immortal Hour, and tracks from the brilliant debut album by Secret Sky.
