The music of The Nashville Celts, led by musician, songwriter, and producer Rick Blair, is uniquely original. Blair credits the group’s popularity to their melding of modern American hit songs and sounds with organic Celtic instruments as well as the success of their PBS-TV specials.
That hybrid sound and historical evolutionary process from the roots of Celtic-American immigrants to today’s most popular music is also fully depicted in the band’s new production entitled Roots of Great American Music. This high energy production demonstrates how Irish music influenced the development of American bluegrass, country, and pop music.
