Celtic Songlines October 19th 2021

The Celts, as with other cultures, believe this time of year is when the veil between the world of the living and those who have passed is thinnest. This week on Celtic Songlines KDRT 95.7FM the playlist is reflective.

The world of traditional Irish music lost a giant this past week with the passing of Paddy Moloney. Closer to home, my father also passed within the past week. The Chieftains are featured and I include several pieces which were favorites of my father.

This week's songs and tunes are often played to honor the dead within Ireland and the UK, we hear from Dervish w/ Abigail Washburn the Celtic Fiddle Festival (Johnny Cunningham, Kevin Burke, Christian Lemaître), Robert Burns as read by Gordon Kennedy, Enya, the Lone Piper and Clannad Irish Band.

The term "Celtic" is thrown around a bit to describe a mostly traditional form of music. That said, musicians have always experimented and pushed the boundaries of music. This week on Celtic Songlines we explore music under the banner of a more recent label: Neo-traditional Celtic. Featured on the program is music from Goitse, Socks in the Frying Pan, Cúig, Kasír, Caitlín & Ciarán, Athrú, Brian Finnegan, Salt House and Annwn.
