Celtic Love Songs

Music in the Celtic tradition using voices and flutes to tell stories of love – romantic love, motherly love, lost love, spurned love, love of one’s country and love of life. A journey through passions and emotions as relevant today as they were centuries ago, and still as stirring, poignant and uplifting.
