We launched a brand new campaign on Kickstarter. The goal is to fund a new Album Pin for The Secret World of Celtic Rock. This is a compilation CD we originally released in 2005 featuring some of the best Celtic Rock of the time. And the album is timeless.

You can own an enamel pin with this year’s beautiful Celtic Earth Knotwork. Or you can own a physical copy of the CD. Plus there are many more rewards.

Go that’ll take you straight over to our Kickstarter page where you can support Celtic culture through music.


This is our way of finding the best songs and artists each year. You can vote for as many songs and tunes that inspire you in each episode. Your vote helps me create next year's Best Celtic music of 2023 episode.  Vote Now!

Two weeks after the episode is launched, I compile your votes to update a playlist on Spotify and YouTube. These are the results of your voting. You can help these artists out by following the playlists and adding tracks you love to your playlists. Follow us on Facebook to find out who is added each week.
