(See box.)

Ritchie was born and raised in Scotland, where she went to the University of Stirling for her undergraduate education. While there, she was invited to spend one semester in North Carolina in the United States, where she first heard NPR radio. After graduating in Scotland she returned to North Carolina and, although initially pursuing post-graduate research, was hired by WFAE FM, the NPR station in Charlotte, to oversee fundraising and promotion efforts.

WFAE was a new station open to new ideas and in 1981 Ritchie began a weekly hour of Celtic music for its local audience. The Thistle & Shamrock was picked up for national broadcast less in less than two years! The program’s national following grew quickly and it was soon established as one of NPR’s most widely heard and best-loved music offerings. During her years based in North Carolina, Ritchie visited radio stations coast-to-coast across the US, presenting live broadcasts and events, and in 1989 and 1990, traveled to 22 US cities with The Thistle & Shamrock Concert Tour.

Fiona Ritchie has presented numerous programs for BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 2, launching the Radio Scotland world music series “Celtic Connections” in 1993. She has produced and presented many live concert performances and broadcasts, including a musical event for HRH Prince Charles in 2001 at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, and has acted in an advisory capacity for arts organizations in the US and UK, including serving on the Scottish advisory committee for the British Council.

The Celtic Universe Show @ KWMR.ORG

Live or Recorded Streaming Shows!

On KWMR, West Marin, CA, ‘The Celtic Universe‘ has been bringing listeners this wonderful music since late 2000. Hosts Loretta Farley and Lyons Filmer highlight music from all over the Celtic diaspora: Ireland, Wales, Scotland, England, Brittany, Galicia, Cape Breton, Newfoundland, Quebec, the U.S. Recently, they’ve also included Nordic folk music.

Loretta and Lyons love to hear from listeners! During the live show on Saturdays, 6-8 pm Pacific time, you can call in comments and requests: 415-663-8492.

Lyons is also program director for KWMR; you can reach her at programming@kwmr.org

Loretta and Lyons bring musicians on-air, both in-studio and on the phone, and love to feature Bay Area performers and the venues that host them – but it doesn’t stop there – calls come from Cape Breton, Ireland, even southeast Asia.

The idea for ‘The Celtic Universe‘ began when Loretta presented a special on KWMR about Irish women and Irish history, using music, spoken word, and her own research and writing. Lyons was impressed, and suggested the two of them share hosting a Celtic music show. Happily the KWMR schedule had room! Generally Loretta and Lyons alternate weeks, and are backed up by Ken Eichstaedt and Greg DeMascio (known as McMascio when subbing).

Initially, Lyons suggested the alliterative ‘Celtic Kingdom’ for the name. Loretta, feminist and democrat, countered with ‘Celtic Universe.’ Sold! Their music tastes differ and overlap; some listeners claim they can tell who’s hosting within the first 30 seconds by the music (having missed the intro, of course!). During ‘The Celtic Universe’ you will hear female and male singers in Scots Gaelic, Breton, Irish, English, Manx, Welsh ballad, love song, tragedy, humor, and beauty, waltzes (a Loretta favorite), jigs and reels, airs, strathspeys (a Lyons favorite), polkas, barndances the occasional electric guitar, pipes of all stripes, fiddle, mandolin, bodhrán, banjo, whistle, flute, accordions and concertinas, harp, harmonica, a keyboard or two.

Folk Music & Beyond Radio Show produced in San Francisco by volunteers JoAnn Mar and Bob Campbell every Saturday afternoon on FM 91.7 MHz from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM Pacific Time.

Their program comes to you on NPR public radio station at KALW FM. Their live Streaming, live broadcasting on 91.7 FM from San Francisco as well as On Demand services bring you some of the best in contemporary folk, traditional, and original music from America, England, Ireland, Scotland, and other parts of the world at your convenience.

JoAnn Mar and Bob Campbell started the show in 1988 in response to the lack of alternative folk/acoustic-based music on the commercial and noncommercial airwaves. This was at a time when KALW had very few live music shows and their mission was and remains to inform as well as to entertain, to challenge people’s common assumptions, reclaiming and redefining the term “folk music” taking pride in its legacy, and broadening its definition.
