Celtic Songlines Celebrates Mabon and the Autumn Equinox - Sep 22nd, 2020

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.

Celtic Songlines Episode 3: From Scotland, Hungary, Ireland and Beyond - Sep 15th, 2020

On this week's program: Phillip Boulding's music featuring his hammered dulcimer, Old Blind Dogs from Scotland, Dervish, An Dochas, Kate Rusby Fay Hield, from Hungary The Moon & The Nightspirit, Celtic super group The Gloaming, Borun's Ghost, Dublin's Lankum and  Altan.  Altan will be streaming their first live concert since March on September 25th via their facebook page.  From the Sunday Tribune, Dublin: “The appeal of Altan centres on the fact that they see no differences or divisions in music. As such, they have managed to cross the all-important cultural barriers between folk and world and rock music.”
