A Music That Arises from the Land: Experience the Vitality and Spirit of the Celts
Forest Halls Celtic airs 12-1pm PST live on 1st and 3rd Sundays and with encore airings 2nd and 4th Sundays, 12-1PM PST. Catch the show via streaming on VoiceofVashon.org or locally on 101.9fm. Each show is available for two weeks for on-demand listening. Our first show aired Sunday, April 3, 2016.
This show is a fun and refreshing mix of mostly contemporary and traditional Celtic music, with forays into folk, World, medieval, and Renaissance music. Along the way we enjoy a snippet or two of poetry, myth, herbal lore, or other greenwood magic. We feature Celtic and historical harp – particularly the wire-strung harp – in every show.
In addition to regularly playing music from the Celtic lands (Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, and so on) we also highlight Celtic and Celtic-inspired music by Pacific Northwest and northern California artists.
Hosted by Jane Valencia – Bardic harper and storyteller.
