From the shores of Ireland through the Isles and to the coast of Brittany, Celtic music survives in many forms and nuances. Harps, bagpipes, violins and fiddles, whistles and drums are all part of today’s music. Sometimes the music is traditional in it’s feel, sometimes it uses traditional instruments to bring out a more modern sound. Samba is not something normally associated with Celtic music, but you’ll hear it in amongst the tunes today. A rendition of Eye of the Tiger on bagpipes and a Renaissance tune on a mandolin are all included among the broad and creative forms of Celtic music on today’s programme.

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the program now at http://music.radioriel.org. Today’s music originates from the music library of Edward Pearse.

For more information on the Alexandrian Free Library, current exhibits and the work of Consortium members in general, please visit the Alexandrian Free Library website, or one of their branches in-world.
