War Pipes Coming to Barbados!
In Barbados, the CELTIC FESTIVAL is a week of celebrating the Celtic Connections between Barbados and the Celtic countries of Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
Musicians from Scotland and Ireland usually take part in some of the major events, while people of all ages, from various parts of the community participate in the events.
Did you know there was a history that connected the Celtic Countries to Barbados? It goes all the way back to the Cromwell’s time when white slaves and indentured servants were sent by ship to work in the sugar industry.
The St. Andrew’s Cross from Scotland is on the Barbados national emblem, where a slave’s hand holds two crossed canes in the shape of St. Andrews Cross.
The Celtic Festival in Barbados is a celebration of the Celtic cultures and heritage from the early Europeans (Welsh, Irish, and Scottish) in Barbados. The cultural exchanges have been the norm with folk choirs and cultural performers from Wales, Ireland and Scotland visiting Barbados every year.
