What is celtic music?

Celtic music is a broad grouping of music genres that evolved out of the folk music traditions of the Celtic people of Western Europe. It refers to both orally-transmitted traditional music and recorded music and the styles vary considerably to include everything from "trad" (traditional) music to a wide range of hybrids. However, the term celtic music is widely used especially on youtube to mean quite freely a broad range of instrumental music that can actually fit to such genres as new age / fantasy music / instrumental soundtrack music / relaxing background music and so on. The main thing that combines these genres together is the use of traditional, often sampled instruments, certain kind of folk music influence and sense of medieval atmosphere. The music often resembles film music or soundtrack music while the tunes are rarely actually used on films.

Notable artists

There are quite a few well known artists especially on youtube who are known for their celtic music style. Such artists as Celestial Aeon Project, Adrian von Ziegler, Brunuhville, Matti Paalanen to name a few have gained a massive following for their music.

I'm a composer/producer from Finland and have produced mainly instrumental music since 2001. My main projects revolve around celtic music, epic music, fantasy music, dark music, film music, ambient and minimalism genres. I release my music under Creative Commons but offer commercial licences via french Jamendo.com. I specialise in free background music, hence Creative Commons. Creative Commons music is getting bigger and bigger these days and I have been one of the most licenced artists on Jamendo for three years now. I have specialized in producing instrumental music using virtual orchestra sound libraries in spirit of film music / soundtrack music. I also produce electronic ambient soundscapes and more modern crossover tunes that integrate virtual orchestra with electronic patterns and elements. Also with the Frozen Silence project I create minimalistic piano music and guitar music with instrumental, mainly melancholic atmospheres.


Some of my albums are now available on Spotify as well, feel free to tune in!
