St. Augustine Celtic Music & Heritage Festival 2019

Many found the CELT in themselves as they took in the sights, sounds and tastes of centuries of European history in the “Nation’s Oldest City” – founded in 1565 by SPANISH CELTS. Celtic Clans showed their ancestral pride, Highland Games athletes demonstrated their mind-boggling strength, vendors offered up Celtic cuisine and hand-made crafts, and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade marched through the streets of the Ancient City’s Historic District.

The Festival has been praised as “Arguably the finest collaboration of Celtic artists assembled in the United States!” Bands from Scotland, Ireland, Canada and around the U.S. played both traditional tunes and Celtic rock throughout the two-day festival. We’re talking Scots-born Albannach and Ireland’s Dublin City Ramblers just to name a few, attracting fans from throughout Florida and Georgia, all over the US, and from Canada to Scotland.

FCO Remembers Marian Anderson

First Coast Opera performed a tribute to Marian Anderson at St Cyprian Episcopal Church, March 1 & 3 and March 2 at Players by the Sea in Jacksonville Beach. Marian Anderson (February 27, 1897-April 8, 1993) was an American singer and one of the most celebrated singers of the twentieth century. Anderson became an important figure in the struggle for black artists to overcome racial prejudice in the United States during the mid-twentieth century.
In 1939, the Daughters of the American Revolution refused permission for Anderson to sing to an integrated audience in Constitution Hall. The incident placed Anderson into the spotlight of the international community on a level unusual for a classical musician. Anderson continued to break barriers for black artists in the United States, becoming the first black person, American or otherwise, to perform at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City on January 7, 1955.
