Celtic influences can be found in Canada, and more so in their music!  The Internet certainly has expanded the reach of the music which is great news.  Canadian Celtic Music is so unique and wonderful to listen to.  The purpose of this page is to spread the word about Canadian Celtic Musicians.

There are links to various artist websites, including the ones I've designed and/or maintain for The Rankins and Jackie Dunn, links to subscribe to various mailing lists to keep up to date on several Canadian Celtic artists, and also a column where I'll keep you up to date on various events in Canada such as media appearances and CD releases.

Hope you like this page and let me know if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, etc.  If you're having trouble locating a CD listed here, or would like more information on a particular item, please don't hesitate to contact me.
