The definition of Celtic music has changed over the last fifty years. It could easily be defined as the traditional music of Ireland and Scotland. That definition no longer works. "Traditional Irish music" is a subset of Celtic music, just like "traditional Scottish music". And "Irish music" does not automatically equal Celtic music. So what is Celtic music the 21st century?
