The star-studded collaborative show Celtic Odyssée returns to the festival, bringing together internationally renowned artists from the eight European Celtic nations. Led by virtuoso French piper Ronan Le Bars and his all-Breton band of Liam Roudil on guitar, Pierrick Tardivel on double bass, Aymeric Le Martelot on keyboards, and Thomas Bessé on drums, 17 artists will take to the stage, including: Annie Ebrel (Brittany), Bec Applebee (Cornwall), Dónal O’Connor (Ireland), Ewen Henderson (Scotland), Icía Varela (Galicia), Jose Manuel Tejedor (Asturias), Kim Carnie (Scotland), Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh (Ireland), Martin Tourish (Ireland), Patrick Rimes (Wales), Rubén Bada (Asturias), and Ruth Keggin (Isle of Man).
In support is Gnoss, whose signature sound is a rich tapestry of acoustic layers. Outstanding musicianship, deep traditional roots and contemporary compositional flair combine to create songs brimming with character. Triple Scots Trad Music Awards nominees, the band have built an invested following through the warmth of their live shows.
