CeltFest is always a special date in our diary but we're very excited about this year's line up of bands.
Alongside Kellys Heroes for CeltFest 2018 we have a fantastic band, The Outside Track, who describe themselves as a Pan Celtic group that performs Scots, Irish and Cape Breton songs and step dance. Members of the group include Ailie Robertson who has won a Live Ireland Music Award and was a BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician Finalist, and Fiona Black who was a winner of the BBC’s Fame Academy. As a group they won ‘Best Group’ in the 2012 Live Ireland Music Award a ‘Tradition In Review’ award, and were nominated for the 2013 MG Alba Scots Traditional Music Award. For their album Flash Company, they also won the German Radio Critics' Prize.
Joining us to complete the 2018 line up we are very excited to have The Fitzgeralds, a family group consisting of fiddling and step dancing siblings Tom, Kerry & Julie Fitzgerald from just outside of Canada’s renowned Ottawa Valley. Featuring 3-time Canadian Grandmaster Fiddle Champions and Ontario Open Step Dance Champions, this unique act features high-energy fiddling and mind blowing step dancing. It is the rare combination of exceptional musicianship, incomparable step dancing, audience interaction, evident love of performing, and genuine sibling connection that resonates with audiences of all ages and sets this group apart.
The music will start at 2.00pm and don't forget- you get all of this for free! So come down to The Victoria Hotel, Dovecote Lane, Beeston, Nottingham, settle back and enjoy Celtic music at it's best.
