Thistle and Shamrock
One of NPR's most popular music programs is created in the foothills of the Scottish Highlands. When you turn your radio on, you're there too.
On The Thistle & Shamrock®, award-winning radio host Fiona Ritchie 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.
Musicians have always delivered exclusive content to Fiona's radio programs, including NPR’s first mp3 music download, live festival recordings, and world premiere performances. Join us to find out what will be next.
