    Celtic Connections offers radio listeners a wide variety of traditional and contemporary music associated with the western European lands occupied at one time or another by people of the Celtic tribes and their descendants, including Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Man, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, and Galicia, as well as Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and other parts of North America where the Celtic influence has been felt.

    The program's host, Bryan Kelso Crow, also brings you great music from England and from Scandinavia and other European regions, all of which have connections with a Celtic past.

    Each week on Celtic Connections, you can count on hearing the finest selections from new releases as well as from Celtic classics. We also offer occasional concert performances, recorded exclusively for Celtic Connections, along with original interviews with some of the top names in the Celtic music world.

    Celtic Connections is syndicated to stations across the U.S. If it is not available on your local public radio station, contact them about your interest in the program, with the reminder that it is available absolutely FREE!

    Program Topic:
    #18-42: Tribute to Tommy Peoples

    Tommy Peoples, the great Donegal fiddle player, died on August 4th of this year. This week, we pay tribute to his music, from recordings with the original Bothy Band, to duo and solo work over the years.

    (10/27 & 10/28)

    #18-43: Samhain Celebration

    The traditional Celtic holiday of Samhain was the source of what many people these days celebrate as Halloween. We celebrate both traditions this week with music for the holiday, a time when the ghosts of the dead were most likely to mingle with the living.
