Description

Caelidh was commissioned by Robert and Lorraine Childs and given to their son David as an eighteenth birthday present.  Composed by Rodney Newton in 1999 it was first performed by David with Brighouse and Rastrick Band in Huddersfield Town Hall later that year.  Caelidh (Ceilidh) is a traditional Gaelic social dance and, following a brief lament, flies into Gaelic dance mode quickening in tempo right to the finish!

Caelidh can be heard on the CD Celtic Charm (CD 24901) on which the performers are David Childs and Cory Band.
