The phenomenally successful Lorient Inter-Celtic Festival will burst into life at the beginning of this month to entertain an audience of almost one million people, with an increased Manx presence and the ever popular Manx pavilion ready to welcome those who pour into the port of Lorient, Brittany.

Manx music is an important element of the Lorient Festival, with a cross-section of some of our most talented musicians heading to Europe, including Manx Gaelic singer Ruth Keggin, who will perform with her trio and in concert with Celtic music legends Julie Fowlis and Mary Black. Ruth will also be joined by fellow members of the exciting Norwegian Manx Project, fiddle maestro Tom Callister, keyboard wizard David Kilgallon and their Norwegian counterparts, Hardanger fiddler Erlend Apneseth and singer Margit Myhr, to bring their unique Celtic/Norse musical fusion to a wider audience.
