Celtic festival in Gijzegem on 30 April

I learned a lot of new things this Friday! For instance, I now can point out the hamlet called “Gijzegem” on the map of Belgium. Moreover, I learned that Gijzegem has a great taste in music, as the local school organised a wonderful folk festival featuring Failte, Aedo, Helen Flaherty together with Daithi Rua and Aidan Burke and, as top of the bill, Kadril.

On the road to Gijzegem, I feared the worst, for it started pouring with rain. I was already considering a potential caption for this article: “Failte festival: four-hour shower of folk music”. At that point, I didn’t know yet that it wouldn’t be the small-scale open-air festival that I thought it would be.

The concerts took place in a tent, and a considerable one, too! Moreover, on the green pasture, there were a couple of booths selling food, clothes, etc. In short, Gijzegem was very well prepared!
