CELTIC NOVA CONCERT – Appearing Weekends 4 and 5: The majestic sound of the Great Highland Bagpipe soars above a powerful rock band, the masterly played violin expands the unique style with symphonic-epic melodies.

Influences of Irish Folk, Symphonic Metal and Scottish tradition merge with the energetic Celtic Rock music, full of lust of life. This sound, as international as the musicians – hailing from Scotland, USA, Bulgaria and Austria – and the spectacular show guarantee a concert no one will ever forget.

Fiery torches on the bagpipes and burning drumsticks, thundering against huge drums, create a captivating atmosphere; flames, shooting out of the instruments, entertain audiences worldwide. That’s why Celtica is one of the most booked acts at Celtic, Scottish, Steampunk, and Medieval festivals.
