Staying true to the roots while having a firm grip on the present!
Céad mile fáilte !
With the growing frustration in the music industry, I decided to create my own website where I can talk about my kind of music. It is not often that Celtic music is well represented in the popular media. Not everyone knows the extent of the net that genre aficionados cast when they coin the term Celtic music. After all we don’t really know what kind of music the ancient Celts made way back. Yet they left and echo. ..an atmosphere that resonates in the kind of music featured in this website.
My aim is not only to reach listeners all over the world but also a way to feature artists who are just starting out in the business. Once in a while I come up with big names from major labels but this website celebrates the spirit of independent music. I think artists can only come up with something really pure when there is no intervention from money wagging executives.
You have seen the growth of this website from being a mere blog from wordpress into something that is becoming into a E magazine. This is my vision for the future. To my readers, happy browsing and blogging. May you find happiness in whatever that inspires you and gives you passion.
With music we build bridges!
Apart from blogging I am also an online DJ on www.radiohappy.eu. My show is from 3 to 6 pm German time. If you you have requests relation to the genre I play feel free to message me and the email is on this page.
I am also writing for Goth magazine Subkulture covering bands in the darkwave, postpunk,industrial and death rock genre: http://subkulture.net/index.php/sk-magazine.html

The goal of The Celtic Music Fan:
This is the website that bridges artists, musicians, events organizers AND FANS. I try my best to cover as many terrains as possible. The news is just within reach. Musicians who are traveling to another country will find this as a good source of info if they are looking for other musicians to jam with. Readers who are searching for Celtic bands can always find music of their choice here. All in all I am just here to provide trivia, amusement, reflection, artist interview and album reviews.
1. We now have the Featured Artist of the Week in place of Interviews. I was thinking that everyone who appeared in that section through the years did have my respect and admiration and I think it is only fitting to change the name. Please take note that the artist of the week gets updated every Tuesday.
2. I own another site called Sphere Music. Although it is somewhat different from this one, it still has something great in terms of music to offer. Please check it out too.
3. All the mp3 downloads featured in this website are all approved by the artists themselves and are done out of their generosity to help this site and to give the readers a sampler of their music. I would however encourage everyone to buy songs from the artists. It is through your generosity that the musical culture continues to thrive. Thank you so much for those who have helped. Threefold karma to you all. Remember, without music buyers, audience for the concerts the music will not survive. We are counting on you to buy the songs to help our Celtic artists.
