Very interesting question TrueNarnian, I looked up the definition, and this is what it brought me to;


Celtic music. Fanciful term which expresses a world-view or record-shelf category rather than actual links between music genres.

1. Indicates 'Irish' or 'Scottish' musics, but is increasingly used in Britain and the US to denote 'Irish', this suggesting discomfort with 'Irishness'. In Europe it may denote Breton or Galician music in addition to Irish, Scottish and Welsh. The music of Brittany is different to Irish music, but is within the playing and listening experience of many Irish traditional musicians. Isle of Man, England and Wales are connected cultures, but Scotland has particularly strong linguistic and music links with Ireland, as has the Scots-Irish diaspora in Canada (Cape Breton, Newfoundland, etc.)


2. More superficially the term 'Celtic' has come to apply to an easy-listening, 'mood' music with dreamy, non-specific but Irish/Scots flavour, marketed as 'relaxing', 'evocative', etc. Such albums are legion, and enjoy a large sale in the US where the Narada company produces many compilation and re-licensed collections—including the playing of such as Máire Ní Chathasaigh, John Whelan and Joanie Madden—while the Mercury label's 'Secret Garden' features Davy Spillane. Traditional players sometimes use the term also, probably to appeal to the pre-formed audience. (Seán O'Driscoll's solo album is titled Celtic Music, Shanachie's 90 per cent Irish song collection is Celtic Love Songs, Green Linnet's, with similar composition, is Celtic Women in Music and Song), but few players would describe themselves as playing anything other than 'traditional' or 'Irish' music.
(From StandingStones.com)

Or as Wikipedia defines it;

Celtic music is a broad grouping of musical genres that evolved out of the folk musical traditions of the Celtic peoples of Western Europe. The term Celtic music may refer to both orally-transmitted traditional music and recorded popular music with only a superficial resemblance to folk styles of the Celtic peoples.



It's a very broad category of music, just like the varieties of rock and other forms of music. It can range from traditional Strathspeys of Scotland to The Pogues or Flogging Molly. However, it's hard to catergorize because of the dispute of what exactly is celtic music. Personally, Celtic Music is...well...Celtic Music. :teehee:

IF he you have time, I highly suggest everyone to watch Fiona Ritchie on NPR's program "All songs considered", she talks about history, samplings and other stuff from Celtic/Gaelic history.....etc...

http://www.npr.org/programs/asc/features/ritchie/

After watching that, I just remembered another Band I LOVE, Capercaille!!! Fwee!

I'm trying to find a song.....I've heard it a lot, but I don't know the name. It sounds sort of like this, but it stays simple.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-JAP7Kf1cI

Do any of you know what I may be talking about?

Sidawethiel, thank you for putting together the different definitions of Celtic... it was interesting.
I have a question... how is Celtic pronounced?
The first C is pronounced like an s, right? Like Cycle.

Quote:
The pronunciation of the ancient Greek word does not determine how the modern English word is pronounced. The word was copied in English from either the Latin "celticus" or the French "celtique" which in its turn came from the Latin. The Latin word is believed to have been copied from the Greek.

Both the Greek and the Latin words were pronounced with the "k" sound, the French with the "s" sound. The regular English pronunciation of "ce-" words derived from French or Latin is with the "s" sound. This word, at least outside Scotland, was predominantly pronounced with the "s" sound as recently as the 1960s but there has been a movement towards the "k" sound except for the Scottish soccer team which is always pronounced with the "s". The Concise Oxford Dictionary has changed its first preference from the "s" sound to the "k" sound in recent editions.

If you want to know what the dominant pronunciation is where you are, the best you can do is listen to what people say. The "correct" pronunciation is the one that is used.


Hmmm well I suppose "Seltic' and "Keltic" are both valid pronunciations :) I'm more used tae "Keltic" though.

Thank you for Googling it or Wiki-ing it or what you did. :P

A Movement towards the "k" sound? That's really funny!
And if the well-respected Oxford Dictionary can't even make up its mind, lol

But thanks to the laconic logic of the source you found... we just need to listen to what other people say... but how do they know what's right...? Hehe, so funny! :-)

Yay! I just MB and I just got back from the Loreena McKennitt concert, it was amazing, if you guys think the cds are amazing, she's even better in concert! And! MB and I both got to meet her after the show, I sort of made a fool of myself, but in a good way, instead of gushing, all I could say was "Hi!! How are you!?" It was silly. Anyways. I'm sure MB or I will post pictures!

You MET Loreena McKennit?????????????????? *faints*

Oh how I wish....

About the Keltic/Seltic pronunciation...
The name Celt came from the Greek word Keltoi, meaning hidden people... therefore I think it would be pronounced Celt.

That was not from a rumor or internet, it was from a history lecture.
