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!
THIS WEEK ON CELTIC CONNECTIONS
Sat, Oct. 22 & Sun, Oct. 23
In the midst of the autumn harvest, we look back to "field" recordings
from around the middle of the 20th century and earlier, in an attempt to
harvest some of the most enduring vocal and instrumental performances
by legendary and mostly non-professional sources of many of today's
recording and performing repertoire.
NEXT WEEK'S EPISODE (10/29 & 10/30)
Program Topic: #16-43: Best of 1976
This week we look back 40 years ago to recordings produced in 1976.
