Celtarabia Headline Gig At Beulah Festival

We had an awesome time at Beulah Festival

The word Beulah (pronounced BYOO-lah) is of Hebrew origin and means ‘to join’. In William Blake’s mythology it is ‘the realm of the subconscious, the source of poetic inspiration and of dreams.’

Beulah Gatherings are drug and alcohol free seasonal celebrations, bringinglike-minded people together.  Celebrating without drugs and alcohol allows more authentic connections to be made between people, which helps create good vibes. Partying in a conscious way is about getting out of your head in a different way. It’s about moving in to the full vividness and beauty of now.

BEULAH FESTIVAL is a family friendly celebration with a deep-rooted sense of community. We are in our third year and would love to welcome you to the beautiful Lime Tree Farm near Ripon.

Celtarabia Headline Gig At Hull Folk Festival 2016

Celtarabia played a storming headline gig at Hull Folk Festival Mark Pollard organiser of The Hull Folk Festival described the performance in this way:

“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!”
These photographs by Rich Duffy-Howard capture the atmosphere wonderfully…
