I’ve recently discovered a podcast called The Wandering Bard and recommend it for anyone interested in learning a bit about Celtic fiddle tunes, their history, and their composers.

The host, Brandon Kennedy, is a fiddler himself and has spent a lot of time researching his subjects and traveling to gather local stories. He has said that he intends to expand the scope of the podcast as it continues, but there’s already plenty of great content.

I’ve been listening to it in my workshop as I work and thoroughly enjoying it. It’s a good thing to listen to during this time of quarantine. 

Here’s his site:

I listened to the first one and it was interesting. Never really thought about all the kings of the faeries.

All the episodes are quite interesting. I especially enjoyed the story behind “Calum’s Road.”
