After setting up the official foundation and our fifth anniversary we have some more big news to share with you. Very big news, we dare say! After having organised the
Fantasy Awards 19/20
for the past four years our friends of
have decided to pass the torch, so to speak, and we are extremely honoured that CeltCast was their choice on who they thought could carry the flame best. And so it is with immense pleasure and pride that we announce that next March CeltCast will organise and host the fifth edition of these Fantasy Awards!
Now, you are probably all very interested in the details. When and where will the event be hosted? Which categories will we be able to vote on? Who will provide the entertainment? Well, all we can say for now is keep an eye on our Facebook page, the event page, and of course check out our new website, designed specifically for Fantasy Awards 19/20 at
We hope to see you all there!
Happy birthday Helen!
Some of our team you see at every festival, some are more the people behind the scenes.
Our Helen is actually a bit of both!
As a part of our stream-team she helps out when we have too few hands to bring you all streams from the festivals.
However Helen’s work doesn’t stop there, this awesome lady is also responsible for keeping our website up to date and beautifully maintained!
So join us in wishing this essential member of our team a very happy and blessed birthday!!!
It’s midweek, and for the CeltCast team, that means review day. We have a whole row of cool album’s that we can introduce to you in the coming months and we will be doing that every Wednesday. So keep your eye out for that!
We start the series with an album that is a bit older, but we only discovered last summer, just before the review team’s summer break. The band is called
and comes from Düsseldorf, Germany. The CD is called Nú Trad. I can tell you that it’s a lovely album for those who like their Irish folk with a bit of a twist and for those who like their music to be fun and cheerful.
We have another bit of news we are proud to share. With the many CDs that need reviewing the editor team became a bit too small. So we have found to lovely ladies who were willing to join the review team and try to translate Cliff’s English into proper readable English (Yes there is a difference 🙂 ) Today we can introduce one of those two new team members.
welcome to the team. Thanks for giving a bit of your time to us.
And now for the result of that teamwork, here is the review of Nú Trad, by Drowsy Maggie!
And very very very soon you will know what kept us up and working last night!
A very special CeltCast week!
It is Monday again, after a very special CeltCast week! We have become a foundation and we have also been in the air for five years! On this birthday we started a ‘give away’ promotion for two beautiful albums of
Paya Lehane Music
! Do you participate (see livestream last Thursday) and win these albums?
On the 17th October we visited the concert of
Poppodium de Peppel
. It was a very special evening and we received two remastered albums from Irfan, of which ‘Seraphim’ is now ready for the new server (the old album will be replaced).
In addition to an older
album, the new album ‘Daylight is Fading’ also goes to the new server. Unfortunately this beautiful album is not in the photo, since CeltCast team members really want to have this album at home. And, with reason, since CeltCast is mentioned in the booklet! A big hug for that! 🥰
There’s also an album from
(2003) transferred to the new server, this album dates back to the time that
and I (
) regularly went to the theater. Our love for the folk music has grown by listening to these old albums.
Today there were thirteen (old and new) albums ready for a new start! Do you know all of them?
