Thanks to the Malcolm Scott Dickinson Trust, a recently commissioned work celebrating Celtic music, song, language and dance, will be premiered at the Island’s annual inter-Celtic festival Yn Chruinnaght later this month at the Centenary Centre in Peel.
David says: “It is an honour to have been supported by the Malcolm Scott Dickinson Trust, and for the opportunity to bring this commission to Yn Chruinnaght & Festival Interceltique de Lorient for the Year of the Isle of Man and Cornwall. The piece explores the rich cultural intrigue within the Isle of Man and hopefully captures the spirit of the Manx appetite for embracing Celtic music, dance, language & culture whenever they touch our shores”.
Tickets for the concert featuring the Manx premiere, with additional sets from renowned Breton duo Landat-Moisson with visiting Cornish dancers and singers, are available online at www.ynchruinnaght.com or from the usual outlets – Celtic Gold (Peel), Shakti Man (Ramsey), Peter Norris Music (Douglas) and Thompson Travel (Port Erin).
