2nd Annual Interceltic Festival of New York

BZH New York

A not‐for‐profit organization composed of Bretons and friends of Brittany

dedicated to promoting the culture, economy, history, tourism, and

Language of the Celtic nation of Brittany, and France.

The 2nd Annual Interceltic Festival of NY presented by BZH New York will again be

an evening of music and dance celebrating the common heritage, traditions, culture,

and story of immigration of Celtic people in New York City. Thirty musicians locally

based or from abroad, will create a ceilidh or fest noz like atmosphere highlighting

the dancing nature of Celtic music.

Last year’s edition set a standard as one of the most convivial and lively on the New

York Celtic music scene, while at the same time exploring and expanding musical

horizons by representing lesser‐known musical traditions from Celtic ethnic



Tony Demarco and friends, Fergus Begley, Thomas Moisson, Charlie LeBrun,

Nosa Terra, Niall O'Leary School of Irish Dance, Duo Tangi Saout/ Samuel LeHenanff

and many more…

The evening will also be an opportunity to promote the regions, culture, economy,

language, tourism and uniqueness of each individual Celtic nation.
