Have Pub, Will Travel!


There’s something about a tiny bar that makes the drinking experience that much more fulfilling. Cram a couple taps into what amounts to a glorified broom closet, add a couple strangers and some live music, and you’re in for a memorable round (or five).

About The Celtic Highlander

So, you might be wondering now how did Celtic Radio come to be? What is our inspiration?

Listen to your local AM or FM band and chances are you will not find many Celtic music stations, if you find any at all! How then can the devoted musicians that play at the Irish Festivals and Highland Games ever get heard beyond that venue? How can people discover Celtic music if there is no place to listen? Hence was born the idea of a free 24 hour Celtic Radio station available on the World Wide Web for all to enjoy.
