Today’s show is concerned mostly with the Celtic-Bluegrass connection. The original Scots-Irish immigrants to the Appalachians formed the overall shape of bluegrass music, including love of melody, for example. But a lot has happened over the hundreds of years that have gone by, and so today Celtic and Appalachian forms are quite different. However, they are similar enough to bring about interesting musical fusions.
