Attention Celtic Music Fans! Tune in To WGBH on Saturday Afternoons
While we’re on the subject of Brian O’Donovan’s great productions, I wanted make certain to mention his wonderful music program, A Celtic Sojourn, which airs Saturday afternoons from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. on WGBH radio. Tune in to 89.7 FM to enjoy folk and contemporary music of Celtic nations and Great Britain as well. O’Donovan is a native of Ireland and has gained such a following with his radio show that it has been expanded into the production of cds, DVDs, TV specials, and the very popular annual holiday concert event A Christmas Celtic Sojourn (see previous post).
There are also two more Celtic music programs on WGBH which air on a less regular basis. A Celtic Sojourn Presents: The Boston Sessions is designed to give the listener the impression of attending an informal jam session in a local pub. Featuring both local and international guest stars, this program airs in front of a live audience and entertains its listeners from a truly unique perspective. Celtic Performances: From Our Studios features live in house sessions with some of Celtic music’s top stars and includes interviews conducted by Brian O’Donovan.
