It is the time to celebrate Mabon, the Autumn Equinox, and honor the seasonal changes and celebrate the harvest. This is a time of giving thanks for the things we have, whether it is abundant crops or other blessings. It's a time of plenty, of gratitude, and of sharing our abundance with those less fortunate.
This week's program will feature artists Lisa Thiel, Lúnasa, Malinky, Jenna Greene, Libana, two selections from the just released album "Wrackline" by Folkworks: Fay Hield, Omnia, the Afro-Celt Sound System, FAUN and Northern Ireland's Déanta.
Join host David Reynolds each week to celebrate the songs, holidays and bardic traditions of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and other Celtic lands. As long as Dave can remember he's been fascinated with the sound of Celtic music which, when he was younger, was focused on the very traditional. The evolution of our understanding of Celtic culture and the music has progressed bringing new sounds to appreciate with artists from the UK and Ireland as well as Cape Breton and the US.
