FESTIVAL CELTIC NIGHT 2022
22. – 23. 7. 2022 camping Zralok, Plumlov
Crisp sound of the bagpipes
Cuts through the air so bright,
My horn is filled up with mead
Scottish regiment ready for fight.
The rhythms of the bodhrán
Call to dance at our camping site,
Nothing else but jig and reel
We’ll be here til the morning light.
Slavs and Celts shout – Sláinte buddy!
Ray sings Pííívo… – which means beer,
Old Viking shouts his “Hello everybody”,
For all to be sure that Celtic Night is here.
Tom Somr – The Old Viking
Hear all Celts, Vikings, Slavs, Franks, Teutons and all other pagans everywhere!
After a 2-year compulsory covid break, the International Music Festival – Celtic Night Plumlov is returning to the Czech festival scene, to the delight not only of the CN organizers, but above all (according to the great response) of all the performers and visitors of this beautiful Celtic festival, the feast of all who love this kind of culture and history of our nation from the bottom of their hearts and it is in the interest of all of us not to fall into oblivion. We are all really excited and we believe that we will find Celtic Night as beautiful this year as we left it involuntarily 2 years ago.
Celtic Night 2022 has been in the phase of intensive preparations for several months now, and this year’s program, as previously announced, with minor changes, is based primarily on the program of the planned 2020 and 2021 years.
This year’s Celtic Night will take place from 22 to 23 July 2022 – traditionally again in the Žralok car camp in the town of Plumlov. We believe that Celtic Night 2022 will be held again with the support and financial participation of the Olomouc Region, the city of Prostějov, and we hope that even under the auspices of the President of the Olomouc Region, as was the case in the past, negotiations are still ongoing.
The two-day KN 2022 program will once again feature about 150 artists and performers from many European countries. We have several novelties in the program, but also proven stars of Celtic Night, which we all love very much. The Irish group from Dublin – SLIOTAR will perform at the KN after the 18th times. There is no need to introduce this group, because it has won the hearts and admiration of all CN visitors over the years. You can also look forward to a group from Austria – CELTICA PIPES ROCK which already has a significant name around the world and will come to Celtic Night after 4 years with the new CD Celtic Spirits. The CISAL PIPERS group from Italy, which is one of the best Celtic music projects in their country, promised to take part again and in 2019 it was forever loved by both the audience and the CN organizers. Furthermore, the excellent world-famous instrumentalist RADIM ZENKL, who has lived in the USA since 1989, where he became the winner of the US National Mandolin Championship 1992, and a new style of mandolin playing – the so-called ‘zenkl style’ – is even named after him in the USA. Radim will come this year to please the audience of KN with a new line-up – together with many awards awarded by guitarist Ondra Kozák – so at KN 2022 a new line-up: Zenkl & Kozák – band. Other CN news this year will be the group: Rí-Ra, which will come with the excellent Dutch singer and instrumentalist Loes van Schaijk, as well as the group MalemIrish, which will perform during Friday’s program. Other star stars KN: TOMÁŠ KOČKO and his Orchestra awarded many awards, also no less excellent Celtic-Breton group BRAN, and excellent groups: IRISH ROSE (SK), DELORAINE, VINTAGE WINE, POITÍN, QUANTI MINORIS, GW , HAPPY TO MEET, WOLFARIAN, DÁLACH. The KN 2022 will also feature Irish dance, which will be performed by a group ERIU from Poland and DÉMÁIRT from Brno. Master AKÁDA and his party will light up their fire show on Friday midnight.
Celtic Night is not only about music and dance, but also about Celtic history and traditions. The members of the LATENART group will set up a large number of their Celtic camps this year, where they will show you Celtic crafts, and the druid Luwer will tell those interested a lot of interesting things about Celtic history and traditions. Our Celtic witch Erika will traditionally give a lecture on Celtic spirituality. Irish dances will be taught on Saturday afternoon under the baton of the DÉMÁIRT group. Workshops will also take place during Saturday’s festival day: * J.P. from Sliotar (guitar in tuning DADGAD – 2) * CISAL PIPERS (ancient flutes and bagpipes and drums) * ZENKL & KOZÁK ( mandolin and guitar). The Viking battles will be demonstrated this year by the historical group ZUBŘI. You will definitely have something to look forward to again this year and you can find out details about all the performers in the section PROGRAM.
Of course, Celtic Night must also be about a good mood and a beautiful atmosphere, and there will be good food and drink of all kinds, as well as Celtic mead, which is served to us by old Kelt Robert. Celtic Night is not a commercial festival, its main vision and mission is and will continue to remind people of the cultural interconnectedness of European countries through “Celticism”, which connects most countries of the European Union as a historical thread and has influenced the culture of many countries around the world. We also want to show that our region is an important part of this history.
We cordially invite everyone who loves Irish and Celtic music, Irish dance, real Celtic entertainment, come with us to spend a beautiful Celtic weekend in Plumlov. We look forward to you!
