Celtarabia described by Mark Pollard organiser of The Hull Folk Festival
"After a full day of music and a fair bit of drinking, the crowd was starting to get itchy feet. The first signs were a bit of shuffling and swaying, which became more animated whenever an act performed an upbeat number, and ended up with people jigging and reeling at the front of the stage. By the time the final act was ready to play they really needed something more, though; something that would allow them to absolutely lose themselves in sound and rhythm. Thankfully, that final act were Celtarabia; right from the off the crowd became a seething mass of whirling dervishes, immersed in 45 minutes of hypnotic world and roots fusion. There really was no finer way to end the day!"
