Celtic Music on NPR

Tonight I was able to listen to one of my favorite programs on NPR. The Thistle and Shamrock program is one of NPR's most interesting music programs and is aired on the weekends in most locations.

It is also one of the best Celtic Music programs on the radio. The show is hosted every week by Fiona Ritchie.

Tonight's show featured some field recordings from the early 20th Century including artists such as Michael Coleman and James Morrison. Next week's show will feature the different kinds of pipes. An index of playlists and upcoming shows can be found here.

Their website also has a good selection of links including some of my favorite artists such as the Chieftains, Dougie Maclean, Niamh Parsons, and Kate Rusby.

Fiona Ritchie has also written a listener's guide to Celtic Music that can be purchased here.
