Presenters Sandy Semeonoff of Planet Waves and Gordon Hotchkiss with his Hotchpotch will celebrate May Day this coming week.
Tuesday 1 May is ‘May Day’ and at Celtic Music Radio we will reflect on this by playing a range of protest and workers songs throughout the day.
International Workers’ Day which is also known as May Day, is a celebration of the international labour movement and left-wing movements. It commonly sees organised street demonstrations and marches by working people and their labour unions throughout most of the world.
May 1 is a national holiday in more than 80 countries. It is also celebrated unofficially in many other countries.
May Day is also related to the Celtic festival of Beltane and the Germanic festival of Walpurgis Night.
The May Spring bank holiday is on Monday 7 May.
