This resource offers an opportunity to reflect critically on some of the insistent 'othering' that has accompanied much cultural production in and on the Celtic World, and that have prohibited serious critical engagement with what are sometimes described as the 'traditional' and 'folk' music of Europe.

...the collection is necessary for academic consideration of the Celtic genre and is consequently thought-provoking-strikingly so on the issues of commercialism and the integration of "innovation" into "tradition." Music Research Forum The book certainly raises questions, and avoids the pat answers to questions of identity and location provided by the growing number of popularisations of the field currently available... Popular Music Celtic Modern creates a sense of dialogue across disciplines, ethnicities, and generations...the book has value for ethnomusicologists, folklorists, and participants involved with many musics. -- vol. 61 Notes: The Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association, DECEMBER 2004 Sophisticated and valuable essays...The collection is significant for its substantive content and because of the special role that the phenomenon of Celtic music has played in the rethinking of fundamental ideas about the place of music in contemporary culture.
