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: #16-49: Music of O'Carolan

Ireland's best-known classical harper, Turlough O'Carolan, lived from 1670 to 1738 and was blind for most of his adult life. His compositions survive today and continue to be recorded by not only harpers but by some of the leading bands in the Celtic music genre. We'll hear a number of O'Carolan tunes in this week's program.

NEXT WEEK'S EPISODE (12/17 & 12/18)
