Relive the magic or see what you missed,
Interceltic in New York
An amazing time was had by all who braved the freezing temperatures on a Saturday night last year in January 2010
The Interceltic Session was really something and certainly something you don't see all that often. The club was packed with people out for a night of music, dance, and fun."ceol agus craic"
I have been at several events and none to compare with the electric atmosphere of this event. It was nice to see so many people socializing and enjoying themselves. The room was packed and the floor was shaking with everyone joining in to learn the dances of the night. It was great to see Breandan O’Caollai, Deputy Consul General of Ireland, at one of his last events before moving back to Ireland, an informal gathering kicking off his shoes and having a pint, and the crew from Irish Network New York, Tara O’Grady and Una Moran.

There were people from France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Ireland, England, and Scotland and of course our fellow New York Clan. What made this a great event was the support of the many groups that came to support and spread the word about the event, such as Denis, and his assistants Rebecca and TJ from the New York Celtic Music Meetup Group

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.

Celebrating the music of Brittany, Galicia, Scotland and Wales in addition to the music of Ireland at the Interceltic Fest Noz was a unique event and having a large turnout was a spectacular success. The list of performers for the event was pretty impressive with over 40 musicians representing all the Celtic nations. So come out to the second celebration of song, music and dance 2011****************
