Weir Celts!

Certain music is so timeless that you can simply connect to it almost instantly – as soon as the notes hit your ears and the groove settle into your heart, you are immediately transported into a whole new dimension – a sonic world created by the artists, or better yet, channeled by the artists through the filter of their unique musicianship.

Christine Weir put together a phenomenal group of musicians in order to work on her 2nd solo album, titled “Weir Celts”. As the title of this release might suggest you, the music is heavily inspired by earthy Irish and Scottish folk influences, as Christine’s vocals shine through a constellation of blissfully arranged strings, rhythms and other instruments.

The band’s energetic modern attitude seamlessly blends in with the band’s unique feel and passion for retro aesthetic, making for a unique compromise between contemporary folk and timeless Celtic vibes. The album’s hilarious cover pokes fun at the famous Marilyn Monroe “skirt incident”…giving it an hilarious Celtic spin!

Christine and her band stand out for their authentic renditions of traditional classics, as well as inspired performances with a unique and vibrant twist. And that earns her a 5 star review from Celtic Radio!

About The Celtic Highlander

So, you might be wondering now how did Celtic Radio come to be? What is our inspiration? Celtic Radio was created to bring together a community of listeners, performers and musicians to share and converse in Celtic culture. Our inspiration for this endeavour is the music, but let’s face it, the radio waves and TV are ruled by an endless barrage of top 40 musicians and performers. 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.
