A Celtic Music Festival

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 9 October, 2013

Welcome to a Celtic Music Festival featuring music from around the Celtic Lands, alongside music inspired by or expressing Celtic themes.

Today you’ll hear a wide variety of Celtic and Celtic-influenced material, with orchestral works like Shaun Davey’s Brendan Voyage; a wide range of performances by traditional Celtic artists; and music inspired by the Celtic heritage. There are also some large-scale performances from artists like Celtic Woman, Celtic Thunder and even the Cincinnati Pops! And listen out for some of the Celtic/Goddess themed pieces from Nashville-based artist Laura Powers’ Legends of the Goddess trilogy, along with Rutland Boughton’s seldom-heard classic, first performed in Glastonbury between the wars, The Immortal Hour.

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin. You can listen to the programme now at http://main.radioriel.org, or simply click here to start your player, if your browser is configured to do so.
