Today on Radio Riel we present a pro­gramme of music from the Celtic lands, with a bias towards Scot­land and par­tic­u­lar­ly towards, but not exclu­sive­ly, pieces in the Gael­ic tongue. In par­tic­u­lar, we’ll be cel­e­brat­ing the musi­cal lega­cy of the Scot­tish band Run­rig. In 2016, the band announced that it would retire from stu­dio record­ing after the release of its 14th stu­dio album, The Sto­ry, and announced their final tour The Last Mile in 2017, cul­mi­nat­ing in a final con­cert in Stir­ling on the 18th of August 2018 titled The Last Dance.

In addi­tion to Run­rig, keep your ears open today for artists such as Dougie MacLean, Julie Fowlis, Altan, Karen Math­e­son, Shooglenifty and many more.
