On January 30th, BZH New York will present the Interceltic Fest Noz, a celebration of music, dance, and culture of Brittany, Galicia, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. There will be live music representing all five of those traditions, as well as set dances from the different Celtic cultures.

This evening of Celtic music and culture will also celebrate the Celtic festival of Imbolc. Imbolc is one of the four principal festivals celebrated among Celtic peoples, either at the beginning of February or at the first local signs of Spring. Most commonly it is celebrated on February 1 or 2, which falls halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere. It is traditionally the festival of fire and light dedicated to the goddess Brigid. In the Christian period it was adopted as St Brigid's Day. In Scotland the festival is also known as Là Fhèill Brìghde, in Ireland as Lá Fhéile Bríde, in Wales as Gŵyl Fair, and in Brittany as la Chandeleur.

The current lineup of performers includes the following and many more:

Bretagne: Duo Morgane Labbe and Francois Tiger Though being youthful in appearance, Morgane and Francois are veterans of fest noz stages throughout Brittany playing most notably as part of fest-noz group called Tadaam. Both are currently travelling across North America playing and presenting Breton culture and music to the cities of Montreal, Miami, New Orleans, Santa Fe, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, and New York. Morgane was awarded the very prestigious 1st prize at the 2009 Interceltic festival of Lorient for best accordion player. (voir le site)

Members of the Bagad de NY will be competing in the 2010 1st category Bagpipe competition this February in Brittany as members of the Bagad Bro Kemperle and Kerlenn Pondi.

Tony DeMarco and Friends Tony DeMarco is one of America's finest folk fiddlers. A Brooklyn native of Irish and Italian decent, he is among the world's leading exponents of the sophisticated County Sligo style of Irish fiddling. Tony's playing has all the characteristics of great Sligo fiddling- swinging rhythmic drive, a wealth of bowed and finger ornamentation, and a high degree of improvised melodic variation. Sligo fiddling has been closely associated with the New York Irish musical tradition for many years. (voir le site)
