Hi there. green ldy!
I have not done an in-depth study on the subject, but I have always regarded the Celtic Music forum as a place to discuss the music of professional artists, while the Minstrel's Gallery seems to be a place for amateur musicians to post and talk with each either, discuss lyrics, insturments, etc. etc. I could be entirely out in left field on this, but that's my take.
