Celtic Tribe Gouden verloop

Mystic Music

Celtic songs, Irish folksongs and self composed ballads. Based on poems of Scottish poets. That is what Celtic Tribe is about. “Celtic” is a broad concept. But everyone has a certain feeling about it. Such as the worship of nature spirits and the earthly rituals of the past. You will regularly encounter themes such as Mother Earth, death, love, Celtic annual festivals and Avalon.


Location: Muziekkoepel Nering Bogel, De Worp te Deventer

Time: 2.30 pm
