The calendar is ticking and…no wait…calendars don’t tick…hm, anyway, it is obviously the first day of the month again, which means that we get to announce another awesome Monthly Marker!

Starting today, and all through August, we will play Harmony Glen’s song called “Zaphod Beeblebrox” from their newest, recently released album “Start Living Today” five to six times a day, to help you all get (or stay) in that fantastically happy festival party mood! It is virtually impossible to stay still while listening to this song, so feel free to jump up and start dancing! And if you want, comment under this post with a video of you dancing, spread the joy! 😀

Want to win some honour points? Who here knows, without using Google or other search engines, where the name of the track comes from? Comment a hint without giving away the actual answer 😉

INTRODUCING: Marielle Groot Obbink!

You have most likely seen her name appear on this page several times before, but in a relatively short time she has grown to be such a valued part of the CeltCast team that we really had to give her a proper introduction!

For quite some time Mariëlle has been steadily climbing the ranks of well known photographers in the Dutch folk scene, and she is certainly recognised as being part of the top now! You can imagine how stoked we at CeltCast were when she came to us and said she wanted to become part of the family.

We had just been talking about starting a Facebook group, CeltCast Community, so the natural thing was to ask her to become admin for that group. And boy did she take us up on that offer! From day one she started managing it like a professional, and it certainly wouldn’t be what it is today without her input.

But she didn’t stop there. Her pictures have livened up our Facebook page, and having her on our team also gave us an extra “live streamer”, allowing us to give you even more music than before through our Facebook page! Just look at all the wonderful streams she gave us this past weekend from Fantasia Fest Leeft !

Want to know more? Go check out her bio at and of course feel free to leave her a message here in the comments!

A beautiful start with HarPetra

This morning at Fantasia Fest Leeft life started with a beautiful sessions of HarPetra .



A month ago during Rapalje ‘s Zomerfolk festival we were introduced to the band Fling .
Fling played a brilliant energetic set of Irish folk that had a lot of people dancing.
Especially during the set in on the pub stage they got the crowed going.
We were happily surprised by this band. Their energy and joy in music was infectious.
Keep an ear out to CeltCast Community Radio to hear the recordings of their gig
or check out our video’s to find the live stream vid there.
