Alan Stivell
Alan Stivell may be said to have originated the concepts of Celtic Music and was undoubtedly responsible for popularising it. Nevertheless, the term remains restrictive in the eyes of the general public. Despite the wealth and breadth of "Celtic Music", which is dear to Alan's heart, it does not encompass all of the aspects of his music, for Alan Stivell is definitely an ardent believer in the power of cross-music. He is and has always been an advocate for blending cultures and musical styles. While Alan Stivell created an audience for modern Breton and Celtic music, he is also widely considered to be one of the forerunners of several musical genres known as Folk-rock or the Ambient movement and especially World Music, with his seminal album "Reflects" in 1970. This is an artist who has pioneered new frontiers across musical genres.
