Alaska Links

  • If you are looking for Celtic bands and performers in Alaska.

  • If you are looking for other than Celtic bands and performers in Alaska.
  • Not strictly folk, but the Alaska Harp Webpage is dedicated to that many stringed, yet ever so tasteful instrument.

    NOTE: I do not generally list commercial links for free, unless I believe they provide some free resources that further the folk tradition.
