High Country Celtic Radio

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

"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. Here at High Country Celtic Radio, we focus 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.

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.

If you're searching for a good two-hour St. Patrick's Day special, we reccommend our Episode 007, which has been remixed and remastered and perfect for a St. Patrick's celebration of traditional Irish music.
