Celtic Music at the Boston Public Library

January 20, 2009 at 1:01 am Leave a comment

Now that you know where in Boston and from whom you can hear great live Celtic music, I am here to point out one place where you can listen to great recorded music as well … and best of all, all of it, for free! The BPL has quite an extensive collection and you can access it in person or very conveniently from the comfort of your own home via our online catalog

In order to bring you the most exposure to this genre from the widest perspective, I have chosen to list those recordings which showcase the talents of more than just one performer or group. If you want to get more specific, I encourage you to explore further on your own. Here is just a sampling of what we have to offer:

1. Rough Guide to Celtic Music

2. Putumayo Presents Celtic tides

3. Absolutely Irish

4. Celtic Harpestry

5. Singing the Mother Countries – Celtic folk songs and ballads

6. Dublin to Dakar – Celtic music from around the world

7. Holding Up Half the Sky (Vol. 1) & (Vol. 2) – Celtic folk songs sung by women

8. Celtic Spirit – Sacred Celtic music

9. Celtic Women (no sound links available at this time) – Irish folk songs

10. Irish Pub Songs (no sound links available at this time)
