About Celtic Mongrel
Like any true mongrel, the genesis for Celtic Mongrel is a mash-up of several things:
- An affinity for Celtic music, literature, history, and culture.
- Family trees dotted with Irish and Scottish ancestors - in addition to many other cultures - all tempered by a few generations in America.
- A distaste for merchandise that reduces a rich cultural heritage to insulting stereotypes. (Most apparent around St. Patrick’s Day!)
- A belief in the paradox that the most enduring traditions are those that are elastic enough to adapt to contemporary sensibilities and influences.
