Celtic News May 2018

The Australian Celtic Festival is over for another year. I always feel a little bit of a let-down when it’s over. The four days goes by in a blur, but I really enjoyed myself again this year.

It’s good to look over all the photos to choose which ones to include in this Newsletter.

Celtic News April 2018

This edition is jam-packed with news and information. I am grateful to all who have sent me content.

This is, of course, the final Newsletter before the Australian Celtic Festival. I have included a run-down of things to do in Glen Innes during the Festival when you are not “up on the hill” watching performances. Huge praise must go to the 2018 Festival Committee for putting together such a broad program.

I have also included two more profiles of Nominees for the Australian Celtic Music Awards. Don’t forget to phone Julie on 02 6732 1355 and book your ticket for the gala Official Celtic Awards Night, dinner and entertainment.
