WHAT IS CELTIC MUSIC AND DANCE?
Celtic music and dance are artforms that originated in any of the Celtic lands: Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall, and The Isle of Man and Gallicia. These lands, or "nations" have a commmon cultural and/or linguistic bond. At one time Celtic peoples inhabited large areas of Europe and Asia Minor. Over the millennia they've been swept to the far reaches of Western Europe, The British Isles and Ireland. From there many people of Celtic descent (mostly Scots, Irish and Welsh) have emigrated to what is known as "The Celtic Diaspora"; to North and South America, Australia and beyond.
The Celtic Company offers several educational programs for schools, libraries and conferences. While students/participants learn about Celtic music, dance, culture, language and history, our goal is to instill a healthy enthusiam for traditional cultures through highly entertaining programs. Over the course of more than 25 years we've played for literally thousands of students at schools, libraries and assemblies throughout Georgia.
The Celtic Company offers solo, duo and trio programs to fit your educational and budgetary needs. All of our programs will be tailored for your audience's age range, from pre-K through high school, and for "edu-tainment" performances for adult functions.
