Celtic folk bands Calan and Jamie Smith’s Mabon will headline the Wales’ Inter-Celtic Festival in Porthcawl this year.

The bands will join other artists to perform at Porthcawl’s Grand Pavilion on March 10-12 in the annual festival that features music and dance from the Celtic nations.

For a whole weekend, visitors will be able to enjoy performances, workshops, street dancing as well as watch the Wales vs. Ireland Six Nations rugby match live on a big screen – all for £25.

Young Welsh folk band, Calan, have made a name for themselves in the British folk scene as well as abroad. They will begin their international tour promoting their new album ‘Solomon’ soon.

Tickets for the evening concerts as well as weekend tickets are available on the Grand Pavilion’s website.
