Celtic Music - A Global Phenomenon
When you hear Celtic, you probably automatically think of Ireland. In a broad sense, you are right. While the Irish are the main producers of Celtic music, Celtic music can be anything related to the Celtic Nation, which includes Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall, Isle of Man and Brittany. One hallmark of Celtic music are the narrative lyrics, which often tells a story with a beginning, middle and end. Key instruments to Celtic music are the fiddle, flute, bodhran, and harp. While they may share certain characteristics, over the years Celtic music has evolved from traditional Irish dance music and acapella narrative songs to include other subgenres, which include Celtic punk, Celtic new age and Celtic rock. Because of its charm and beauty, Celtic music, which was once limited to the western isles and Europe, has become a global phenomenon with musicians spanning to other parts of the world.
