Fest-noz in New York, 20th November 2010

Dematt d'an Holl,
I'm very proud to launch the first newsletter of Bagad New York announcing our 1st event.
About year ago, we first "officially" met to draw this big project, and now here we are, the "Grande Première" of the bagad is on the agenda. Emotion, passion, music, all of this is what we do want to share.
I'm defining breton music to people as a median between scottish music and Balkan dancing, as breton music and breton dance are inseparable, we play music for dancers.
So please read below and join us in the circle!
-- Yoann Le Goff / President

Bagad New York will hold a traditional breton party to celebrate its first anniversary in New York City.

The purpose of this event is to raise money in order to furnish the band with proper instruments and tuition. If you are considering a donation, please contact us. We are a not-for-profit organization under the section 501(c)3, so any donation is tax-deductable.
