Bard music on the radio

The bard music genre is rooted in medieval European traditions and has been associated with minstrels or wandering poets who sang and played instruments to entertain and tell stories. The genre experienced a revival in the 20th century, with musicians adopting the bardic style to create music that evokes a sense of nostalgia and folklore.

Some of the most popular artists in this genre include Loreena McKennitt, Clannad, and Enya. Loreena McKennitt is known for blending Celtic, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean influences into her music. Clannad, a band from Ireland, incorporates traditional Irish instruments and Gaelic lyrics into their music. Enya, also from Ireland, has created a unique sound that blends new age and Celtic elements.

There are not many dedicated radio stations for bard music, but some stations that play this genre include Radio Rivendell, which specializes in fantasy and medieval-inspired music, and Folk Radio UK, which features a mix of traditional and contemporary folk music. In addition, streaming services like Spotify and Pandora offer playlists and radio stations dedicated to bard music.
