Celtic Around The World (3/9/15 – 3/15/15)

12 Mar

This week, we’re going to explore one of the worlds most enduring and popular musical genres: Celtic music. The influence of harps and pipes and jigs and reels is felt far beyond their roots in the British Isles and Northern Europe. We’ll traverse most of the Seven Celtic Nations and venture beyond, for music with that Celtic lilt, from Africa, Italy, Canada, and Spain.
