Celtic song lyrics by Charlie And The Bhoys and as sung around the pubs and clubs before and after Celtic football matches. Although Charlie And The Bhoys sang much more than whats on this page, their rebel songs can be found mostly in the Wolfe Tones section. I hope to build on what songs I have here, so if you have Celtic songs for guitar you would like to share, please send them to me. People from outside Ireland and Britain sometimes refair to ''Celtic Music'' as folk music, if it's general folk music you want try the A-Z sections as most songs in the section are related to the Celtic football club.

Sometimes people have mixed ethnicity; Scots-Italian, Asian-Scots, Polish-Irish, Irish-English and Irish-Scottish-Italian are some of those common in Scotland: a multi-cultural country because, particularly since the mid 19th century, it has become home to numerous peoples’ that originate from other countries: the Irish, particularly from 1845, the Lithuanians at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, the Italians likewise, the Chinese after the Second World War and similarly people from Pakistan, India, and more recently Poland. There are hundreds of thousands of English born people in Scotland too.


For different reasons many of Scotland’s immigrants have endeavoured to assimilate and conform to wider social, cultural and symbolic ‘norms’ (as sometimes they do in other countries). This in often an attempt to be tolerated and accepted in the face of disadvantage and prejudice: in this case sometimes people hide or disguise their ethnic origins (religion, surnames, culture, etc) so as to be seen as authentically Scottish or British. Others integrate into Scottish and British societies while retaining features and practices associated with their ethnic heritage and background: sometimes evident via choice of music, food, cultural habits, pubs visited, songs, sport, preference regarding holiday destination, their religion and of course in their surnames and forenames which are often obvious markers of ethnic and cultural distinctiveness.


With regards those from an Irish background that make up Scotland’s largest ethnic minority community, many are proud of their Irish heritage and expressions of this emerge in the use of Irish forenames, enjoying Irish dance, playing and liking Irish music and singing Irish songs, supporting Gaelic sport, visiting Ireland, political and cultural interests, reading Irish newspapers and magazines, listening to Irish radio, participating in St Patrick’s Day celebrations, and supporting Celtic Football Club, an institution founded within and largely championed by Scotland’s historic Irish community.
