2004 Celtic Festival

Compliments of the Barbados Advocate.

Web Posted - Fri May 21 2004
Heavy showers failed to dampen the enthusiastic response of the audience at Bougainvillea Hotel to Celticana – the opening performance of the 2004 Celtic Festival last Monday evening.
The Canadian musicians, the off-spring of families of Irish and Scottish origin, had the audience of hotel guests and Barbadians tapping their feet, joining in choruses, and enjoying the rhythms and harmonies of the ceilidh – an informal session of Celtic music, singing and dance.

The performers were all multi-talented. Troy MacGillivray excelled on fiddle and then moved to the keyboards to accompany Barbados-based bagpiper Mike Chisholm.

Both McCarrel sisters, Meagan and Michelle, were accomplished performers on the fiddle but Meagan also performed a rhythmic, foot-tapping Irish dance while Michelle excelled on the keyboards.

Clearly enjoying the evening was the multi- talented Tara McKenzie whose infectious smile lit up her performances whether playing the harp, bodhron (Irish drum) or guitar or singing traditional Irish airs.

They also performed at a special lunch at Sunbury House on Wednesday and at Macbrides on Thursday. They were due to have sessions with the Barbados Youth Orchestra at the Prince Cave Hall yesterday and the music students of the Barbados Community College today.

Tonight they will be in concert with the Royal Barbados Police Band at the Prince Cave Hall in Station Hill. Tomorrow will see the Halbro Cup Rugby Tournament at the Garrison and the Festival will end on Sunday with the Celtic cruise from midday.·
