………………………Celtic Gathering Isle of Man 2018………………………


The Celtic Gathering celebrates the 40th anniversary of Yn Chruinnaght which was first held in 1978. And it’s been a real celebration as we presented –

Wednesday 11 July :    award-winning Manx, Scottish and Irish band Ímar with award-winning Manx harper Mera Royle;
Thursday    12 July :    Irish and Scottish band Las with the Manx gypsy jazz of Clash Vooar;
Friday          13 July :    Welsh band NoGood Boyo with the great Manx family trio The Lawrences; and
Saturday      14 July :    fantastic Irish band Altan with inter-Celtic super-duo Keggin & Stitt.


We also had two great visiting dance bands, with Glaou from Brittany and Cymry Cymysg from Wales.

Yn Chruinnaght means the gathering, and Celtic Gathering Isle of Man helps to take that message out to even more people.
