August 14th 2017
2017 was the ‘Year of Scotland’ at the 47th annual Festival Interceltique de Lorient in Brittany, France, where some of Scotland’s top traditional musicians and bands had the chance to shine at one of the biggest festivals in the Celtic music calendar…and shine they did! Audiences were blown away by the quality of music that was being performed for a week across various venues. Fortunately for us, we were there with a camera crew to capture some of these magnificent moments, as well as the incredible carnival atmosphere of the entire city.
Presented by Julie Fowlis and Allan MacDonald, the series will air on BBC ALBA in December, featuring plenty of gig footage, behind the scenes interviews, pop-up performances, experiences of Breton culture and of course the sound of the bagad!
