What is "Celtic music"? Obviously, the term doesn't describe the music of the ancient Celts, which hasn't survived in any recognizable form to modern times. While some people use the term as a marketing tool, we prefer to employ "Celtic music" to describe the family of traditions that continues to thrive today, be it straight from Ireland or Scotland, or from any of the myriad places in the world touched by a Celtic influence.
If a band or musician isn't listed here and you think they should be, drop us a line. We'll do our best to include them in a future edition.
Celtic music is thriving and evolving at a phenomenal rate along the East Coast of Canada, where musicians have developed a style unique to that region.
The French-Celtic connection:
Celtic interactions (at times peaceful, at others violent) with the French in Europe and North America have led to the creation of a new and distinct subset of music.
