(p.246) 13 Some Reflections on “Celtic” Music
Transatlantic Roots Music

Duck Baker

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter presents the reflections on Celtic music of Duck Baker, an American musician living in Britain who plays both U.S. and British roots music and fusions of the two. In so doing, Baker joins the other writers in the preceding chapters in debating the central issue of authenticity. The chapter shows that this issue is bound up with an honest desire on the part of roots musicians to value and nurture tradition from whenever and wherever that tradition comes. That is, after all, how and why the music survives.

Keywords:   Celtic music, American musicians, roots music, authenticity
