    1. The Celtic Link / Music

      What is the Celtic about?

      The Celtic is an idea that was created by two Cornish lads with a passion for Celtic music, dance and it’s people and was inspired during the return trip to Cornwall through the Scottish mountains following the Speyfest festival in Fochabers, North East Scotland.

      This website has primarily been set up to supply a useful network of contacts throughout the Celtic music and dance scene and to provide a unique opportunity for festival organisers to have an easily accessible means of finding groups and musicians of all varieties from all over the Celtic world and beyond! After all, there are a lot of Celtic bands out there that may never get the opportunity to be heard outside of their own locality. Therefore, this site also provides them with the opportunity to be known and share their music and talents to other festivals locally, nationally and internationally.

      The second aspect of the website is for festival organisers to be able to advertise and promote their festivals easily on one unique website that is dedicated to a specific purpose. This will be advertised globally and make aware to a vast audience that the festival exists however big or small.

      Finally there will be an opportunity to share information and experiences in the discussion forum and also use the community area to communicate with others on a more one-to-one basis, download pictures and create a personal profile for others to see.

      As Cornish musicians and dancers we have performed at many Celtic festivals spanning back many years, and it is the sole purpose of The Celtic to try and create stronger links within the Celtic world of music, dancing and individuals alike.

    2. Cornish art in Englands capital

      Over a year ago the CERES secretariat noticed that the European Commissions’ Jean Monnet House was hosting a sequence of European-related art exhibitions. An off-the-cuff remark about a Cornish exhibition was met with surprising enthusiasm and, an organising team was created and the result is as follows.

      During February the London offices of the European Commission, in association with the Gorsedh of Cornwall and CERES (the Centre for European Research within Cornwall), will host an exhibition of paintings by contemporary Cornish artists living and working in the Duchy. The work of nine artists will be represented and the event will mark a notable Cornish occasion, enabling aspects of Cornwall’s art to be made known to an internationally-based public.

      The exhibition will be opened by Cornwall’s Grand Bard, Mrs Venessa Beeman, at a private viewing and reception at Jean Monnet House, 8 Storey’s Gate, Westminster (Tube: St James’s Park) on the evening of Tuesday 3 February. This will be followed by open days on Wednesday? Thursday and Friday of that week, and on Monday to Friday of the week thereafter.

      Artists whose work will be exhibited include:

      Clive Carter
      Anthony Frost
      Francis Hewlett
      Ashley Hold
      Robert Jones
      Andrew Lanyon
      Margot Maeckelburghe
      Mary Martin
      Louise McClary

      This is a great chance to raise Cornwall’s profile just that extra notch more so please do help in circulating this information to all who may be interested.
