King of Celtic Radio

Proverbs of the Moment
Gaelic Proverbs come primarily from the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland, and they have a distinctly rural or agricultural flavor which reflects the society from which they were gathered. It is to be expected that many of them pertain to the weather, to the planting of crops, and to country life in general. Others reflect the Gaelic love of company and hospitality, fear of poverty and laziness.

Gaelic Proverb:
Is fheàrr teine beag a gharas na teine mòr a loisgeas.

English Translation:
The little fire that warms is better than the big fire that burns.

Few countries have a greater number of proverbs than has Scotland. Even today, everyday speech in Scotland is sprinkled with them. Scots are wonderfully given to this way of speaking, and the lovely Scots tongue loses much of its flavor when forced to translate their unqiue language. Those that appear in English have been preserved that way for at least 200 years!

Scottish Proverb:
God shapes the back for the burden.

July CD Contests

Posted on: 21-Jul-2018, 09:25 PM
Posted by: CelticRadio

We are going to try something a little different this month for our July CD contest. We have three really great CDs available which includes Saor Patrol's latest CD. Saor Patrol is headed up by Charlie Allen - you've seen him in movies such as King Arthur, Snow White and the Huntsman, Gladiator and Robin Hood and he thought enough of us to send a stash of his latest CDs for Celtic Radio listeners to enjoy. If you like bagpipes, of the rock version, you will definitely like Saor Patrol.

Here are the CDs up for grabs this month:

So, we are going to give away these CDs in a raffle, but here is the thing. You have to post a message and a picture in the Celtic Radio App Chat feature. Its our new Social place on the App and we just made some improvements to it.

Load up the App and click on the Chat Icon to access and post away. We will randomly choose the CD winners for that month from within the App.

To download the App for your mobile device, visit our mobile website here:


scroll to the bottom and choose the mobile system you have. Or just search for "Celtic Radio Network" in the store of your choice. Its Free!

Link of the Moment
Poitin-Celtic World Music

Poitín (pronounced 'patcheen') is of course that famous Irish firewater distilled from wheat and rye, but it's also a trad Celtic band from the Czech Republic not averse to a little experimentation - on their latest album they've got a didge player and a saxophonist who doubles up on low whistles and tin whistles. The band is, however, firmly grounded in the pub session tradition and like nothing better than sitting round a table in the corner of a cosy pub and bashing out old favourites about tarry sailors, merry maids and drunken nights (or is it drunken sailors, tarry maids and merry nights?!)
History: Poitín play Celtic music in all its shapes and forms from haunting Breton melodies to raunchy traditional Irish songs. They've performed at festivals across Europe in Italy, France, Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. The latest cd, ‘Hot Days’ features a daring mix of saxophone, didgeridoo and more traditional instruments to create a sparkling collection of songs and tunes, some traditional, some new, all suffused with Poitín magic. They formed in Pilsen, CZ, in 1996 and have released three albums to date on their own label and are also included on four compilation albums (two released by Popron, CZ and two by Marc Gunn in the U.S.). The first album, ‘Poitín’ was released in 2000 and featured a very traditional collection of tunes including the 'Congress Reel' and songs such as 'Spanish Lady' as well as lesser known Breton and English songs.

The second album, ‘De la Basse Bretagne’ was eventually released in 2003 and was a tribute to the talents of the band's French singer, Neige Pruvost on her return to her birthplace. It consists mainly of French and Breton songs and tunes and features Dan Eberle on double bass. There's a lovely traditional Czech folk song, 'Lida, Lidunka' at the end of the album in acknowledgement of the band's own roots. Poitín were pleased to be invited to contribute to Popron's ‘Best of Celtic Music I and II’ compilation albums and recently Marc Gunn's ‘Victims of Irish Music’ and ‘The Best of the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast’ which have had excellent reviews on CD Baby.
Review: Here's what they said about us on the Free MP3s Celtic Music Magazine (thanks, Karen J. Brady!)...
'It seems an odd combination...Celtic music from a Czech band, but it turns out that in the 1990s, the Czechs were just beginning to rediscover their Celtic roots, especially in the west, where the ruins of a Celtic fortress still remain. The history of the land is as interesting as the music of Poitin, who perform not only dreamy ballads, but also rollicking pub sing-a-longs, scintillating jigs, and thundering reels from Ireland, Scotland and England.

Since they formed, Poitin has undergone a metamorphosis as far as their sound, incorporating more progressive elements into their traditional repertoire. With their new album having caused a bit of controversy with the addition of a saxophone, the band promises something that even traditionalists will enjoy. Nothing wrong with a fresh sound. And that is precisely what Poitin brings to the world of Celtic music.'
Over the last 10 years they have played in France, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and Italy and are still going strong.

They released their first CD back in 2000, imaginatively called ‘Poitín’ , it has 17 tracks of traditional Irish, Scottish and French songs and tunes plus a bonus traditional Czech folk song, ‘Lida, Lidunka’. It features Neige Pruvost on the French and Breton songs, Jeremy King’s vocals on the Scottish and Irish numbers and Tonda Muzik on bodhran.
Their second CD was made as a farewell tribute to Neige who returned to France in 2001. It is a compilation of 12 French and Breton songs called ‘De la Basse Bretagne’ with Tyna Frankova and Neige Pruvost on vocals. It was finally released in 2003.
Their third and most recent CD was released in 2006 to mark the band's tenth anniversary and is called ‘Hot Days’. It features 13 tracks with Helena Markova on saxophone. You can hear scintillating arrangements of classic jigs, reels and songs, plus completely new compositions by Helena, Honza and Kuba, all with an unmistakable Celtic flavour.
They also feature on three compilation albums, ‘The Mystery of Celtic Music I’ and ‘The Mystery of Celtic Music II’ (released in the Czech Republic by Popron) and Marc Gunn’s compilations of Celtic music from around the world, ‘Victims of Irish Music’ and ‘The Best of the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast’ .

Poitín can be contacted by emailing Jeremy King at or through their websites

The Celtic Zodiac

The Hazel, 8/5 - 9/1

The Hazel was considered to be the Tree of Wisdom and to fell one was once a crime punishable by death. It was believed that magickal skills and knowledge could be gained from eating Hazel nuts, which are the emblems of concentrated wisdom. In Irish folklore, the Hazel tree was the home of Bile Ratha, the poetic fairy. The Hazel is also strongly associated with mediation and meditation. The Druids were the inheritors of the knowledge of measurement and calculation, skills of the earlier "dodmen" who were the prehistoric surveyors of the key lines and trackways portrayed in the ancient chalk-cut figure of the Long Man of Wilmington who is shown holding staves or rods. Also skilled in the law, the Druids were often called upon to mediate in disputes concerning property and land boundaries, in much the same way as the surveyors of modern times. Twigs of Hazel are favored by water-diviners and for other methods of divination due to the sensitive nature of the tree and its close affinity with the element of water. It was once believed that the Mushrooms which grow on a Hazel could provide an individual with the ability to relocate what he or she may have lost. The Hazel was a favored tree of the Druids, some of whom preferred its wood over that of the Oak for their staffs, given its conductive nature. This was, however, purely a matter of preference. Staffs made of Hazel were once considered as a sign of authority among the Druids. Pins made of Hazel were once used to protect houses from fire and the trees planted as shade from the Sun. Ground Hazel nuts were often employed i........ more
