Celtic Moods

Today’s pro­gramme takes anoth­er look at the expan­sion of Celtic music and themes into sev­er­al dif­fer­ent gen­res of music.

Here we are fea­tur­ing musi­cians and music that start from the Celtic tra­di­tion and take it for­ward into oth­er realms, from Joanie Mad­den to Mendelssohn to Ger­al­do and his Orches­tra; from thun­der­ous­ly spec­tac­u­lar orches­tral arrange­ments (you’ll hear sev­er­al of those today) in the wake of River­dance, to inspir­ing music for a small Celtic ensem­ble and organ, played in the largest Goth­ic space in the world.

Music of Ireland

It’s March 17, St Patrick­’s Day, and today we have a pro­gramme of pri­mar­i­ly (but not exclu­sive­ly) tra­di­tion­al music for you from the Emer­ald Isle.

It’s also the pre­miere of the lat­est edi­tion of Where’ve You Been? — our twice-a-month fea­ture on things to do and places to see around the Sec­ond Life Grid. Tune in at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic Time — this week, that’s 19:00 and 23:00 UTC. For details, see the arti­cle here.

You can also catch Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity, from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hous­ton, every four hours from 4am Pacific.
