Traditional Celtic Music: The phrase “celtic music” has many different meanings to many different people. At it’s core, “celtic music’ could be defined as the traditional music of the Celts who settled in Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall, Wales, Galacia, Brittany, Nova Scotia, and the Isle of Man. But during the last thirty years or so the term “celtic music” has undergone a transformation.
Traditional Celtic Music
Thirty years ago, “celtic music” referred almost exclusively to the traditional music of Ireland. The now-dormant website Ceolas defines “celtic music” in terms of their website as traditional Irish and Scottish music. They make the supposition that most Celtic musicians are bound to play those styles of music if they play traditional Celtic music no matter where they are from.
We introduced a “TRAD” Tent to the Highland Games in 2017, to support this traditional celtic music. It was extremely successful to our guests and we received many compliments. This year’s (2018) lineup will be announced very soon.
