Every time we fall in love with the music of a band

Do you remember that childhood feeling, when you would get your new toy? The excitement, the wonder, the sheer joy of knowing that this is the start of completely new adventures! Well, that’s how we at CeltCast feel every time we fall in love with the music of a band that we had not previously heard. And because of that, next weekend we will probably feel like the proverbial kid in a candystore, as Festival-Mediaval features many, many bands that we have not yet heard perform before!

Various medieval periods brought into the 21st century by SKRÖMTA . The Eastern sounds transported to Germany by ORO – Music from the wild, wild East . A nice dram of jigs and reels by The Aberlours . The moving music of the minstrels of Viscum . And so, so much more!

Will you be joining us on our tour of discovery this weekend? We can promise you adventure and exciting times!

Working hard on a schedule

Festival – Mediaval is getting closer and we are working hard on a schedule for live-streaming and photographing to give you all a good report on how awesome this festival is.

The schedule is quite difficult to set up this year as there are so many unfamiliar bands for the team. It’s one of the best things about travelling far for a festival: all the new people and music you get to know.

However, this twelfth edition there are also some familiar faces, besides Heilung , and ThunderCrow , we will also be able to see the Red Hot Chilli Pipers who we saw last year at Zomerfolk , the friendly faces of Ye Banished Privateers and retrace our dancing steps on Selfish Murphy who we saw just a few months ago at Keltfest !

There will be enough awesome music to enjoy, both new and known!

Ye Banished Privateers

With Heilung they have one of the most popular acts!

Festival-Mediaval wouldn’t be Mediaval if they didn’t have some spectacular shows. With Heilung on Saturday they have one of the most popular acts in the scene at the moment!

The whole team is really really really excited to see this ensemble of brilliant musicians, many of which are good friends!

See you at Festival-Mediaval next week!!!

Exactly a week from today we will arrive at Festival – Mediaval.

Last year was such an amazing experience that going back there will be a joyous experience for the whole team.

However, there is one bittersweet moment of being there. On the first night, ThunderCrow will give their last show in their current setting.

As Rob and Daphyd have explained, Rob will play his farewell show at Festival-Mediaval, after which he will continue with some awesome projects like Guinevere , while Daphyd will continue with Thundercrow with Zachary Bainter . All amazing projects that we will look forward too.

But first, we will enjoy the awesome sound of Thundercrow with Rob and Daphyd at Festival-Mediaval!

Happy birthday Andre!

As CeltCast has grown from a ‘mere’ radio station to a multi-media organisation, photography has taken up an ever-increasing part of our (social) media presence, and we are immensely proud to have such an amazing photography team! One of our latest additions to that team is André, and apart from celebrating his joining of the CeltCast family, today we also celebrate another completed lap around the sun for him! So, from everyone at CeltCast: Happy birthday Andre!!

Join us in the festivities and wish André the very best here in the comments, or send him a real or virtual birthday card 😀

(If you don’t have his contact details but you do want to send him that card, just send it to CeltCast HQ and we’ll make sure he gets it.)
