“They (VICA) have an incredible grasp of the Celtic culture and have established a network of teachers, numerous historical artifacts, and a strong desire to share their knowledge and passion of the Celtic arts. The time has come to establish a place where people can learn and experience the many aspects of the Celtic culture”. –Greg MacDonald, Catamount Arts Board Member
