Who are we?
We are a multi-skilled group of people sharing a passion for all things Celtic.
In our team you’ll find a range of skilled content creators, including writers, journalists, photographers, videographers and musicians.
We have digital whiz kids who know all about the clever technical stuff that goes into creating and running engaging websites and social media accounts that reach the biggest possible audience.
And we have experienced business people that know how to make it all work financially. Because at the end of the day, we all have bills to pay!
We are all different but have one thing in common; we are ambassadors for Celtic culture.
What do we do?
We believe that Celtic culture should be preserved, promoted and celebrated, and that an understanding of a shared past enriches our lives today. While that culture is built on the heritage and traditions of the past, it is not static but vibrant and ever changing
It could be musicians using centuries old instruments and styles but taking them in new and unexpected directions. Or craftsmen incorporating thousand-year old designs and motifs into contemporary objects. In all cases, the past is the inspiration for the present and a springboard into the future.
Our mission is to find these exciting developments and to show them to the global Celtic community. By doing this we support and encourage those pushing forward the frontiers of Celtic culture, connecting them with like-minded people around the world.
We also highlight important events in the Celtic calendar such as music festivals, sports events and cultural gatherings. And we are a shop-window for businesses, from travel, hotels and heritage sites to food and drink, crafts and musicians and all things Celtic.
Festivals, Events and Bands
Celtic Link will also be the most comprehensive online source of information on Celtic musicians, bands, festivals, and events. Many talented groups struggle to be heard outside their local area. We are a contacts network for the Celtic music and dance scene, making it easy for festival and event organisers to find musicians from every genre and from all over the Celtic world. Celtic Link gives artists the exposure they deserve, enabling them to showcase their talents at national and international festivals.
We believe that an understanding of Celtic culture, history and heritage immeasurably enriches our lives. Knowledge of and respect for our Celtic roots underpins everything we do.
We are open-minded. While we deeply respect history and heritage, we are not slaves to them. Anybody seeking to reinterpret, rejuvenate, innovate and push forward the boundaries of Celtic culture will find a home at Celtic Link.
We are open and inclusive. The Celtic community is vast, colourful, raw, passionate and creative. We believe that those within it are eager to engage with their overseas brothers and sisters. So we welcome contributions from anybody with something interesting and relevant to say about the Celtic world.
We are ethical. We treat our readers and our contributors with respect and hold ourselves to high standards of truth and impartiality.
We are practical and professional. It is possible – essential in fact – to balance our values with sound commercial practices. ‘Doing well by doing good’, you might say. Achieving our aim of providing world-class service to the Celtic community will only be possible if Celtic Link is on a firm financial footing, so we seek to work with businesses that share our vision.
