Celtic musical traditions continue to evolve in Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, England, Wales and in North America. This evolution is the raw material from which Fiona Ritchie produced her weekly program of music and cultural heritage from studios at the foothills of the Scottish highlands.

November 1
Brittany
Intoxicating melodies from Brittany fill the air this week, with Breton bands Kornog and Skolvan, vocalist Annie Ebrel, and the father of contemporary Celtic music in Brittany, Alan Stivell.

November 8
Jazz
Luka Bloom and Karan Casey are best known for traditional and contemporary folk song. Hear them and others working with jazz artists to craft a different style of music.

November 15
Islanders
From Shetland and Orkney, to the Hebrides, the Isle of Man and Rathlin Island, this week's diverse choice of music is far from insular.

November 22
Dance Time
The rhythms of Celtic music work their way down into your feet; before you know it, you're dancing. Limber up and tune into this hour of music featuring Alasdair Fraser, Trian, and a pair of traditional dance bands from Ireland and Scotland.

November 29
Dream Time
There's more to this roots music business than high-energy dance tunes. Kick back with some soothing voices (Maire Brennan, Dougie MacLean, Karen Matheson) and some free-spirited instrumentals (Davy Spillane, William Jackson, Michael McGoldrick).

December 6
Music Migration
Fiona recalls the connections that captured her attention when she first travelled in the U.S. in the early 1980s by exploring what ties her world to the music of the Southern Mountains.

December 13
Alan Reid
Three decades after her journey into national radio started, Fiona meets up with the man who was her very first interview: Alan Reid, known for his long career with the legendary Battlefield Band.

December 20
Nollaig
Hear traditional carols, along with seasonal favorites, dance tunes and verses as Fiona celebrates the traditional Celtic Christmastide.

December 27
Midwinter Musing
Travel into the traditions of midwinter through some spellbinding music of the season.
