Celtic Celebration

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.
