WHEN IT'S ON

Saturday at 3pm on 89.7 WGBH

Featuring Jordi Savall 9/19/09

Jordi Savall is known as one of the great players and interpreters of early music and is credited largely with bringing the Viola De Gamba back into vogue. Recently, he teamed with harpist Andrew Lawrence-King to create one of the more intriguing collections of traditional Celtic music recorded in many years. Drawing from song airs of Ireland and Scotland, dance tunes from around the Celtic world, and particularly on the repertoire of the blind 17th century Irish Harper Turlough O'Carolan, this collection is featured on this edition of A Celtic Sojourn.

ABOUT A CELTIC SOJOURN

Each week, host Brian O’Donovan explores traditional and contemporary music from around the Celtic world, connecting emerging artists to their deep musical roots. A native Irishman, O’Donovan’s musical expertise and warm, affable style has become a New England tradition itself, expanding A Celtic Sojourn into CDs, DVDs, television specials, and annual holiday concerts.

“Celtic music is a living tradition. A new generation is pushing its edges in fascinating ways, incorporating jazz, classical and rock, while still keenly aware of its deep roots.” — Brian O’Donovan
