I’m American and fascinated by Irish and Scottish culture. I’m not sure which country draws me more.
I have the rare situation of being a dual American-EU citizen, and my grandfather was born in England, so I think I think I could also apply for U.K. citizenship.
I know I have to visit again before I die (have only been there once), and I’m considering a long stay, long enough to immerse myself a bit in the culture. Maybe 6 months initially. In particular, I’m interested in Celtic music and language. I’m a cellist—not a very Celtic instrument, but I can play some Celtic tunes on it. Wherever I go, I need to be involved with music somehow.
I am near retirement age and am fairly flexible.
I really don’t know what my next step should be, apart from talking with people who know more than I do or who share my interests.
Looking for any and all feedback.
