Barbados Celtic Festival 2018
May 23, 2018 @ 8:00 am - May 27, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
It all began in the 1990s when Welsh woman Ruth Williams brought her fathers Male Voice Choir over from Wales to perform in the Frank Collymore Hall. Since then many well kent faces in the Scottish, Irish and Welsh as well as Nova Scotia music scene have travelled to Barbados to take part on the last weekend in May every year.
Carol Anderson from Edinburgh Scotland took over in 2011 and brought in the iconic folk musician Eddi Reader and her band to perform. Its a rich cultural exchange of music and food between the wonderful Bajans with their rich Celtic history, and the current music from around the world.
