Introducing: Kees

Kees (intro) To all those who frequent the Dutch and/or German festival scene he’s certainly a familiar face. The black hat, with goggles of course, the grey beard, and let’s not forget, the big black camera bag! We’re obviously talking about Kees Stravers, the photographer of the stars.

Kees has been a fan of CeltCast from the start, and that feeling is certainly mutual. So when Kees contacted us, saying that he would like to contribute some of his work occasionally, we were very excited!

Being not only very good with a camera but also amazing with words, Kees will support CeltCast by providing images as well as reports from the various events he visits!

We are very happy to get such positive feedback and great contributions and we would like to extend a very heartfelt “welcome aboard” to Kees!

Kees’ first contribution is a wonderful report on a concert by the talented Maya Fridman:

FaerieCon report

FaerieCon Old friend of the Folk scene, and of CeltCast, Miles Batty went to FaerieCon East last weekend and wrote a great review!

If you want to read all about SJ Tucker‘s performance, how Miles literally bumped into Steve of Omnia during FAUN‘s enchanting show, the overflowing enthusiasm the next day, when so many people wanted to see the Woodland and Omnia shows that they exceeded the maximum capacity of the ballroom, then go to our

Reports page.
Find out what happened after the shows, when Miles met more of CeltCast’s friends like Micheál Ó Laoghaire and Christen Marie of Ravengrove Radio. How FaerieCon Saturday ended in a hotel room after-party with Steve and Jenny, Rob and Daphyd, Satrya and Emilio, Stephan and Oliver. And how Woodland provided an wonderful end to the FaerieCon experience for Miles with an acoustic set, before slipping away into a deep… deep sleep…
