With Matt & Maureen

Celtic Music Show. Jigs, reels, strathspeys and polkas. Old tunes and new compositions in the Celtic tradition. Join us as we explore Celtic music in all its flavors. Slainte

For two hours every Sunday afternoon you can hear Celtic tunes and ballads. Rotating hosts Kathleen Rybarz, Brian Conklin-Powers, Pepin Mittelhauser, Matt Murphy and Maureen Foye, each cook up a slightly different blend of acoustic Celtic music with a different twist here or there. Each of them mix it up with ballads, jigs, reels, waltzes, polkas and strathspays. Irish, Scottish, Galacian, Breton, Welsh, Acadian and Cape Breton and more traditional musical flavors find their way into the pot. We spice the show with some local weather and concert information for flavor. A hearty meal for all interested in Celtic music.
