Our monthly sample of songs and tunes from new and recent releases. Won't you join us?
Music of Northern Ireland
This week we feature bands, singers, and instrumentalists from Northern Ireland, including current-day performers as well as legendary performers of the past.
Songs of the Sea
We explore music inspired by seafaring ships, and by life in and around the sea.
We start the month of May with music from new and recent releases from both sides of the Atlantic.
Calhoun Sings Burns
This week's special edition of Celtic Connections features a studio visit from Chicago singer Andrew Calhoun, who will share the fruits of his research on the original melodies by which Robert Burns intended his songs to be sung.
Since the Celtic albums of 2015 are no longer new enough to be included in our monthly New Releases programs, we will feature some previously unheard tracks from albums released that year in this week's program.
Tune in this week to hear some of the leading bands from wherever Celtic music is played and heard.
We are happy to bring you some of the great new recordings by Celtic musicians in this week's program.
This week we raid the record shelves for songs and tunes from the past five decades, from albums that still inspire today.
Spotlight on Six
This week we look back to music released just 3 years ago and catch up with some songs and tunes that haven't been played on the program until now.
Music of the Civil War Era
Irish and Scottish immigrants played a significant role in the American Civil War, both as soldiers and as songwriters. This week we feature music of the Civil War era, including songs by America's first commercially successful songwriter, Stephen Foster.
