The growth of Celtic spiritual communities amongst the Bretons, Cornish, Welsh, Irish, Manx, Scottish and English peoples developed in the vacuum left by the retreating Roman occupation of Europe.
 
When the Romans abandoned their European territories early in the 5th century, they left behind a remnant of the Christian faith which they had brought with them. This faith blossomed and grew into the early Celtic spiritual way of life, and was further fuelled by the arrival in 597 AD of Augustine, on his mission to evangelise the tribes of Britain.
 
Pre-Christian and early Christian Celts had little interest in writing. They were referred to as 'Keltoi' the secret people. Their culture and philosophy was kept alive by oral tradition only. As the early Celtic Christian communities flourished, they became both great lovers of art and creators of art. They taught by means of stories, poems, pictures and songs. We see examples of this in the Book of Kells and the Lindisfarne Gospels.
 
These early Celtic communities were characterised by a radical commitment to the poor, to God, and to the natural created world. With the new spiritual awakening came new music, together with adaptations of existing folk styles. It was an expression of faith, and of a way of life, in music and song. Early settlers to America took their music with them, and the influence of European Celtic music is evident in much of American folk music, particularly the music of Appalachia.
