Celtic Connections (Series)

Produced by WSIU

Most recent piece in this series:

The Best of Celtic Connections 1952

From WSIU | Part of the Celtic Connections series | 58:29


Brian Kelso Crow first visited Ireland 40 years ago and first experienced live performances by many legendary Celtic musicians. As we remember the life of Brian Kelso Crow we come full circle to the time that was such a great influence on him as he shares excerpts from his travel journal and the experiences that ultimately resulted in 25 years of Celtic Connections.

Celtic Connections offers radio listeners a wide variety of traditional and contemporary music associated with the western European lands occupied at one time or another by people of the Celtic tribes and their descendants, including Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Man, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, and Galicia, as well as Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and other parts of North America where the Celtic influence has been felt.

Most recent piece in this series:

21-15: Ellis Marsalis Remembered: Family Memories & Music with Branford, Wynton, Delfeayo and Jason Marsalis, 4/14/2021

From American Routes | Part of the American Routes series | 01:59:00


There is no more recognizable family name in jazz from New Orleans and beyond than: Marsalis. We’re paying tribute to the late pianist Ellis Marsalis Jr. who passed of Covid-19 in April 2020, and to his musical sons Branford (saxophone), Wynton (trumpet), Delfeayo (trombone) and Jason (drums and vibraphone). The conversation ranges from coming of age in a family of musicians, with expectations of performing at the highest level, to the interplay of traditional and modern jazz in New Orleans. Previously unheard are Wynton’s remarkable memorial oration and a live set with youngest son Jason Marsalis playing the music of his late father. It’s the enduring and thriving musical legacy of the Marsalis family this week on American Routes.

Burning Man — Archiving the Ephemeral

From The Kitchen Sisters | Part of the Fugitive Waves series | 18:58


On the night of Summer Solstice 1986, Larry Harvey and Jerry James built and burned an eight-foot wooden figure on San Francisco's Baker Beach surrounded by a handful of friends. Burning Man was born. 
This weekend, the 34th annual Burning Man gathering begins to assemble on a vast dry lake bed in Nevada's Black Rock Desert, the nomadic ritual's home since 1990. An estimated 80,000 people will come.   
How do you archive an event when one of it's driving principles is "leave no trace?" Where The Burning Man is in fact burned? What is being kept and who is keeping it? The Kitchen Sisters take a journey into the archives of this legendary gathering to find out.

The first starts in 1969 with the Who and ends up in 1974 with a classic King Crimson track, while the second runs from 1968 to 1971. As a bonus we have the unique Alan Douglas mix of Jimi Hendrix's Angel from the long out-of-print Voodoo Soup album to finish out the hour.

From WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour | Part of the WoodSongs series | 59:02


DOYLE LAWSON & QUICKSILVER is celebrating his 50th anniversary in bluegrass music this year. Doyle and the boys have multiple Grammy, Dove, ICM, IBMA and SPBGMA Award nominations, and are seven-time winners of IBMA’s Vocal Group of the Year Award. Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver are the reigning Inspirational Country Music Association Vocal Group of the Year, on the heels of Lawson’s induction into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame last year. We are proud to have this incredible bluegrass legend back on WoodSongs! 

LAKE STREET DIVE is a quirky northeastern quartet that has become known for their irreverent brand of pop which blends classic soul and R&B, jazz, and British invasion. Combine this with the unstoppable joy of their live shows and near viral collection of YouTube videos, and you get the sum of the Lake Street Dive equation: pure pop music fun. Knock-your-socks-off vocals and virtuosic instrumentals top it all off. The band is garnering a growing fan base in and beyond their native East Coast.
