Celtic music continues to evolve and the Celtic Songline library continues to grow. This week we feature a few bands new to our playlist such as Iona, a progressive Celtic rock band from the United Kingdom, which was formed by lead vocalist Joanne Hogg and multi-instrumentalists David Fitzgerald and Dave Bainbridge. Another new addition is Ye Vagabonds, brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn – who hail from the town of Carlow, south-west of Dublin. Also featured this week are the German band Faun and another addition is Pagan Folk, a collective of stellar musicians. Rounding out the program are the always amazing Old Blind Dogs, from San Francisco is the band The Fire, Irish piper Tommy Martin with Seamus Thompson, The Fureys, Capercaillie and Altan.
