What first comes to your mind when you think about Celtic music? Usually… ‘it’s some sort of Irish dances? Flutes and violins, and guys jumping on one leg…?’ Well let’s say that this was more or less what I was thinking (shame, shame!) when I went to see Beltaine back on a freezing December day…
Cross your legs, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and say ‘ommm’. Then clear your mind, think of nothing for 5, 10, 15 minutes. Breath in, breath out. Clear your mind, don’t think. Breath.
