Celtic & Nearly Celtic Music

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, April 23, 2006

There’s an hour of Celtic and nearly-Celtic music on this edition of New Sounds, featuring Mozaik, a Celtic band with Balkan, Romanian, Macedonian and klezmer leanings in their tunes. Also, hear the lush vocals, innovative arrangements and masterful instrumental playing of the all-female band The Poozies. Then there’s the relentless sounds of jigs, reels, slides and polkas, skillfully delivered by the acoustic traditional Celtic band Bohola, plus the Celtic-flavored folk of Fairport Convention. Music by the English zither player Andrew Cronshaw rounds out the show.
