Also there was the Italian ballerina Marie Taglioni; Russian ballerinas Anna Pavlova and Galina Ulanova American Susanne Farrell – who lived in the moment and was able to completely let go.

This year I heard some wonderful new musicians at Celtic - Lau, RM Hubbert, Mogwai, Imelda May, Nicola B, Del
Amitri and from Greece Alkinoos Ioannidis. I also enjoyed artists I'd heard before - Dougie MacLean, Julie Fowlis,
Jerry Douglas, Karine Polwart, Kris Drever, Capercaillie. I enjoyed several amazing concerts at Celtic and it certainly
gets me through January!

Highlights. This is difficult so many incredible artists! I did particularly enjoy - Alkinoos Ioannidis, RM Hubbert, Del
Amitri, Lau, and Julie Fowlis. There were often several wonderful concerts on the same night, so it’s impossible and
there are many events I was unable to make at Celtic. One good thing is there is much encouragement given over the
festival to new musicians – with the Late Sessions, Open mic and also Showcase Scotland with music people worldwide
attending these concerts.
