Celtic Rover

​​​​​​​​​​Become a Celtic Rover and help support Celtic Connections

Celtic Rover members help support our award winning Education Programme; a series of concerts and workshops designed to engage children and young people with traditional music and culture.

“Yet again my little ones had a ball and we had too many parent volunteers this year because they had heard how much we'd enjoyed last year's gig. We all appreciate the generosity of everyone who makes it possible for these shows to happen and look forward to next year.”
Nursery Teacher, East Kilbride
