"Celtic Tides is the first book to tell the story of this Celtic invasion through profiles of the traditional music scene in the old world and the new. The book features extensive interviews with the most influential Celtic artists, the first comprehensive discography of Celtic music, a complete guide to international Celtic music festivals, and forty pages of photographs. For fans of contemporary music and popular culture, "Celtic Tides is indispensable.
