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.
