Created in the foothills of the Scottish Highlands by Fiona Ritchie, The Thistle & Shamrock explores evolving music from Celtic roots in Europe and North America. You'll hear well-established and newly emerging recording artists along with in-studio guests, all surveying familiar territory and leading you to more distant landscapes and genres.
Thistle is your weekly bridge between the established architects of Celtic roots music and the rising generation of musicians. Fiona is fascinated by the place where this music meets the world, so you can expect to hear her investigate its influences in World and contemporary music too. Beyond that, have no expectations in particular. Just wait and see where the music takes you.
