Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.
– Celtic blessing –

Enjoyed an evening of folk music, Celtic harp and British story telling. A bit of simple, and still so powerful, old folklore is nice in the middle of all the modern electric buzz.

163/2011 evening in the highlands



163/2011 evening in the highlands, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Our journey continued north, to the highlands of Scotland. During our evening in Inverness, we came across a live music pub, the Hootananny, were a traditional Scottish ‘ceilidh’, ie live folk music and dancing, was going on.

In addition to the more common instruments, such as the guitar and accordeon, naturally there were different Scottish bagpipes, too. What a warm and cheerful atmosphere on a cold and rainy evening!
