Music festival last weekend of September, 4 days, La Veta, Walsenburg, and Gardner, September 22-25, 2016. We accept cash and checks.
The Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival celebrates its 12th anniversary in 2016. Our festival is similar to the traditional music festivals back home in Scotland.
Our smaller size allows for the artists and attendees to interact closely. Our artists perform at concerts, play at open sessions in our pubs, and teach workshops the next day!
Our festival places equal emphasis on both “entertainment” and “education,” thus the number of workshops that focus on various instruments (harp, fiddle, whistle, pipes, bodhran, etc.) as well as dancing, singing, and storytelling.
Our world-class artists are tops in their fields, coming from Scotland, Ireland, England, Spain. Over the years we've featured Martin Hayes & Dennis Cahill, Aine Minogue, The Tannahill Weavers, Jerry O′Sullivan, Maire Ni Chathasaigh, The Old Blind Dogs, Fullset, and many others. Many of our attendees come back year after year as we are quite a unique festival in a very beautiful place.
