Home About Host Playlists Album of the Year Stations Press
 

Starting in 1996, the first Celtic Connections program of each year has offered a review of the best Celtic albums of the previous year, culminating in host Bryan Kelso Crow's selection of "Celtic Connections Album of the Year." For the program's 10th anniversary show in February 2001, he went back and selected a winning album for each year since the program started locally in southern Illinois in 1991. The complete list is provided here and will be updated each year.
