Celtarabia at Hull Folk Festival 2016

Another storming Celtarabia gig – this time headlining Saturday night at the Hull Folk and Maritime Festival. Such a terrific end to a glorious day at Hull Marina with an awesome audience who danced the high energy dance all the way through the set, from the first turn of the Gurdy to the last kick of the drum. It’s been a brilliant weekend – big smiles all round – as Rich’s photographs show.

Thanks to everyone who made it such a brilliant night, let’s hear it for Hull Folk!  Here’s Rich’s gallery, click on an image and scroll along…

Celtarabia play a wild fusion of Arabic, Andalucian, Celtic, Medieval music and contemporary beats designed to get bodies dancing. Some of this country’s finest world dance musicians play the wildest cross-over music being made in England today. Featuring Hurdy-Gurdy, Hammered Dulcimer, Vocals,  Bass Guitar and plenty of dancing.”
