Format: DVD
Awakening the spirits within the rocks and soil and sea and the ocean, this music speaks to the soul within us all and connects us to Nature and Timelessness. Based on traditional melodies, today's popular Celtic musicians and vocalists bring their personal influences and experience via instrument and voice, interpreting the music for modern times, yet maintaining a continuity of sound with the past which is undeniably beautiful. This DVD provides a glimpse into the world of Celtic music via interviews and performances by many of the best vocalists, both male and female, and modern Celtic bands who have graced the world stage

Interviews are conducted with the Chieftains, Old Blind Dogs, Karen Matheson of Capercaille, Mary Black, Maireade Ni Mhaoinaigh of Altan, Maire Brennan of Clannad, Loreena McKinnett, Seamus Egan, Dougie McLean, Natalie McMaster, Ashley MacIsaac, and John Allen Cameron, plus a few others. These performers demonstrate a wide range of Irish music and regional influence. The music originated in Ireland and Scotland and has passed around the world to Australia and Cape Breton, Canada wherever Irish and Scottish immigrants settled, usually during the 18th and 19th century. Explanations are given by the musicians and vocalists as to early influences on their music and how they developed their unique expressions and personal talent.

The Rankin sisters take the viewer to beautiful green Irish landscapes, seasides, mountains, and villages which form the backdrop to their discussions of this root music. The mysterious and magical qualities of Celtic music originates within the soul and life of the simple, everyday people of Ireland.

Though this program came out a few years ago, I recently re-acquired it on DVD, it was so good. When I first saw it, it had the effect of granting me a deeper access to the world of Celtic music. The narrators explicate the roots of the Celtic musical tradition as well as lead the viewer/listener through a wide variety of contemporary artists in the Celtic tradition. The program alludes to ancient Celtic mythology and the worldview of ancient Celtic peoples, as well as allowing you to hear how recent artists interpret their work and the tradition in which they stand. Excellent on DVD, too--the color and picture quality are very high. Beautifully filmed. I recommend this disc strongly!

never get to see a complete performance-only brief clips---"interviews" are lengthy monologues that are not all that interesting

Format: DVD
This should be subtitled A Celtic Windbaggery, as the music presented is constantly interrupted by the talking of the various artists who verbally have much less to offer than when interpreting their songs, more accurately described as neo-Celtic. I noted also the new pronunciation of Celtic as Keltic and wondered who thought this up and managed to get it propagated. Obviously, where language is concerned, imitation, repetition and mindlessness go hand in hand. The music is pleasant to listen to, and all the players/singers have something to offer, but on this recording there is no way to really enjoy the music. Unless you enjoy hearing the pompous jerks who talk, talk and then talk again on PBS, this is not for you.
