The Flag of Scotland

Aug 28, 2013

Some listeners of this weekly addition to Celtic Faire may know that the researcher for the topics is very proud of her Irish heritage. However, to bring awareness to the fullness of all Celtic nations celebrated by the Celtic Cultural Alliance, today’s spot features information about the Flag of Scotland., we’ll be covering flags from the other Celtic nations in subsequent broadcasts.

The Rob Roy is a cocktail created in 1894 by a bartender at the Waldorf Astoria New York. The drink was named in honor of the premiere of the operetta, Rob Roy by composer Reginald De Koven and lyricist Harry B. Smith loosely based upon Scottish folk hero Robert Roy MacGregor. If you’d like to see a more accessible story of this historic figure, the 1995 film of the same name starring Liam Neeson and Jessica Lang is worth a rental.

The Potato

Aug 28, 2013

It is one of the strangest twists of fate that Ireland will forever be associated with the potato, an alien vegetable that was adopted as a staple food within fifty years after it was introduced to the land. This humble vegetable was eventually to become a great influence in the course of Ireland's history.

Today, we share a few Celtic Wedding traditions. The feast was one of the most important aspects of a Celtic wedding. Unlike today where the ceremony and reception are viewed separately, traditional Celtic weddings incorporated everything into one big ceremony. The families and friends of both the bride and groom were there along with members of the community. The Celtic bride was very important. The term bride is Celtic in origin and refers to Brigid (or Bríd) , an exalted goddess of Celtic lore. The veil is a very old tradition. Before the bride is veiled she is a maiden.

If you have ever heard of the word Lughnasa, you are either a student of ancient Celtic customs, a fan of Tony award-winning Broadway plays, or a devoted member of an ancient Celtic worship community. The average person has probably never even heard the word Lughnasa, even in Ireland where in modern Gaelic it is often called Lúnasa, meaning the month of August.

Annie:  My guest today is Ed Perry.  He is the outreach coordinator for the National Wildlife Federation’s climate change campaign.  He is here in Bethlehem to arrange for a roundtable discussion about how climate change is affecting wildlife, natural systems and public health.  Ed, could you tell us about the upcoming event and what it is about?

One of the goals of the Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild is to inform the public and teachers on the use of story in education. To that end, we host the Pennsylvania Youth Storytelling Showcase, an annual competition of young storytellers. This completion will be held at the Northampton Community College on April 26th in 2014. Students who compete may also enter into the pool of candidates for the National Youth Storytelling Showcase, hosted by the Timpanogos Storytelling Conference in Orem, Utah in March of 2015.
