Celtic Music:

Bhi Beo

Gaelic rocks!  This North Uist band has a wide range of music – all in the gaelic language, from haunting ballads to party pieces..

No Celtic Boundaries

Broadcasting from the Shores of Lochbroom in the Highland Fishing village of Ullapool. Dedicated to Celtic Music, Charles and Gemma, with the help of the Show’s
producer, Mr Tony Henk, have devoted a lot of time and energy to bringing the listening public a vast selection of Celtic music from around the world. Celtic music is well worth exploring. Try this for a sample (Deirdre Shannon).
