Celtic music hails from the British Isles, particularly Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Fiddles, flutes, bagpipes, harps, and dulcimers are the genreā€™s primary instruments.

Celtic music itself has experienced a surge of popularity in recent years, and can be found in most parts of the state. Claire Flemming, South Moon Under, Edward Keeney, and James Kelly are Celtic musicians in the Folklife Collection.

Interview with fiddler James Kelly

Interview with fiddler James Kelly

Date
Description
One audio cassette. Interview with Irish fiddler and master artist Kelly for the Folk Arts Apprentice Program. Held at his home in Miami Springs, Kelly discusses Irish music; his immigration from Ireland in 1976; his father, famed Irish fiddler John Kelly; learning fiddle music; Irish dancing; fiddling techniques; and his musical influences (jazz, rock and roll, and his father). Kelly served as a master artist in 1989 for Pam Carsey and Linda Gesele. For a second interview with Kelly (in 1986), see tape 11. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
