High Country Celtic Radio

Series produced by High Country Celtic Radio

Series image

From Nevada’s high desert to the mighty Sierra, Katie and Joe journey across the world of Celtic Traditional and Contemporary music.

High Country Celtic Radio focuses on the Traditional music and trad-based music of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, Wales, and northern Spain, performed by musicians across the world. This is (mostly) about traditional songs and acoustic music, featuring traditional instruments.

"Celtic Music" conjures up different concepts of musical styles depending on whom you ask, for it encompasses a huge variety of music, from New Age, through Traditional, to rock. As denizens of Northern Nevada, hosts Joe Bly and Katie Marie may not be in one of the epicenters of Traditional Music like Boston, County Clare, or Chicago, but they are working, trad musicians that share their enjoyment of all things Trad.

For stations, we also offer FTP downloads and personalized evergreen and weekly promos.

Many of our episodes are tied to specific dates or seasons, but the "free-for-all" and "raggle-taggle" pieces are pretty sure to be evergreen. Prior to episode 34, we ran two-hour episodes, but each segment can be easily run as an hour. Hide full description
