Musical Genres: Celtic

What is Celtic music?  To most people, it's Irish music. Traditionally, there are seven Celtic lands: Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Cornwall, Brittany (in France), and Galicia (in Spain). To D'n'A, Celtic music also includes the Scandinavian countries, more regions of France, and the new cultures in English-speaking and French-speaking North America (Québec, Acadia, Appalachia and Louisiana).

The official flag of the seven Celtic nations. 

Celtic music in the D'n'A repertoire includes:

  • Scottish music 
  • Irish music
  • Scandinavian music
  • French music
  • French-Canadian music
  • Appalachian music 
  • Cajun music 

For every performance, D'n'A select music appropriate for the event. They also offer educational programs, where they take the audience on a musical journey through all the Celtic lands, showing
Their first album, Genetic Threads, showcased all the Celtic styles they play, and simulated that journey.
