Program 1577: Family Gathering (August 15, 2013)  Week  33

Some of the finest Celtic music recorded since it was so labeled has sprung from a few influential musical families.  Hear the Brennans, the O'Domhnaills (pron: O'Donnels), the Cunninghams, the Fishers, and the Lunnys.  Together and individually, they have helped shape the genre.
