« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

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 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.
