AllMusic Review by

This simple, sparse, and lovely collection of traditional and original Celtic folk tunes is the perfect accompaniment to a bright Sunday morning or a fireplace-lit evening. Guitarist Allan Alexander coaxes 31 songs out of his gut-stringed classical guitar that range from wistful and sad ("Mrs. O'Neil of Carlane") to amiable and jaunty ("Carolan's Quarrel with the Landlady"). Fans of the genre who are looking for music without all of the bells and whistles that drive today's contemporary Celtic music would do well to pick up Celtic Music for Guitar.
