HISTORY OF THE MAUI CELTIC RADIO SHOW


Hot Maui Celtic Radio Show news - the last couple of years of the The Maui Celtic Show are now available to listen at http://www.mixcloud.com/mauiceltic/. Easy to sign up, and free. A treat for yer Celtic lugs!

For a list of past shows please scroll to the bottom of the page.

THE MAUI CELTIC RADIO SHOW is a Celtic music show that first started on the non-profit and volunteer staffed Mana'o Radio 91.5 fm KEAO-LP Wailuku, Maui, later changed to KMNO on 91.7fm. Hamish Burgess of Maui Celtic started his own show, at first with good friend John Grant, guesting with various Mana'o DJs in 2003.
Initially with 'Sleepy John', and Sandra Lee Akaka, he later joined Tony Clifford on 'Sunday Solstice' from 8-10am in 2004.

Hamish took over the show solo in 2006, and the Maui Celtic Radio Show became an international success via the internet. As he travels a lot for the show internationally, visiting festivals and interviewing musicians, Joel Agnew or Daniel Vicars would stand in hosting if Hamish was away.

After Mana'o Radio had a change of management in April 2014, the new station emerged as Mana'o Hana Hou Radio, and the show was ironically cancelled in May by program director Tony Clifford, before the station came back on air. Hamish would like to thank the founders of the old Mana'o Radio, Kathy Collins and the late Barry Shannon, for 10 great fun years on local Maui radio.

Within 5 minutes of a public internet post to notify listeners of his absence, Hamish received a message from Stevie Connor, CEO of Blues & Roots Radio in Ontario, Canada: "I want your show!". The Maui Celtic Radio Show first streamed on Blues & Roots Radio on July 13th 2014, at first streaming 3 days a week at www.bluesandrootsradio.com. With great listener figures, and his international connections, Hamish Burgess was made their Head of Operations for the Pacific & West Coast, spreading the word on Blues & Roots Radio for several years.

During a visit to Scotland in the summer of 2014, Hamish visited Celtic Music Radio 95fm in Glasgow, where he had been a regular guest on various DJs programmes over the years. During a live broadcast from their studios, he was asked to join their roster of hosts by director Ross Macfadyen. The Maui Celtic Radio Show first broadcast across Glasgow August 12th 2014, and is on air and online Tuesdays 12 noon-2pm at www.celticmusicradio.net, 95fm across Glasgow, with repeats now on Thursday 10pm-midnight, and Friday 4-6 am.

The Maui Celtic Radio Show with Hamish Burgess returned to the Maui airwaves on Sunday September 20th 2015 at 8-10am - old time slot, but a new station - on the dial at KAKU 88.5 FM Maui (KAKU885FM on facebook). Mahalo to all at Akaku Maui Community Media, especially Shaggy Jenkins and Joel Agnew. https://www.akaku.org/kaku-88-5-fm/. The show repeats Sundays 5-7pm.

The Maui Celtic Radio Show was taken off the Blues & Roots Radio roster just over 4 years after the start date, on July 15th 2018, having been on their new Discover channel for syndicated shows for the last year. The station is heading towrds all exclusive shows, and Hamish still wanted to be played on his home island of Maui, and over in Scotland. Hamish: "Thanks to Stevie & Anne Connor for four great years broadcasting with Blues and Roots Radio. I'm grateful for the fantastic venue for my show, and wish you both all the very best personally, and continued success with Blues and Roots Radio."

Hamish travels to many countries interviewing musicians for the program, and often has interview clips with special guests such as the late Liam Clancy, George Millar, Paddy Moloney, Michael Black, Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas, Joanie Madden, Robbie O'Connell and Ed Miller to name but a few.........he often does themed shows, where he talks about the traditions of the Celtic people and the music. These have included themes on the Celtic festivals of Samhain, Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasadh, the Summer Solstice and the Winter Solstice. Also modern themes of Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, St.Patrick's Day, Valentines Day, Easter, and Canada Day and Independence Day. Other subjects have included Robert Burns, Sea Shanties, Celtic Emigration, and Irish Rebel Songs, and a musical tour of the Celtic Lands. He has even done some Celtic Rock Shows.

 



HOST & PRODUCER HAMISH BURGESS


A British citizen of Scottish parents, Hamish Douglas Burgess, also known as Seumas (or even Jim by old friends), is now also a U.S. citizen living on the island of Maui, in the Hawaiian Islands, where he has promoted Celtic culture for the last 15 years.

Jim or Hamish Douglas Burgess

He is the owner of Maui Celtic, an import and Celtic goods retail company as well as an organization which is a is a cross-cultural link for music events, genealogy, Celtic art and heritage. His website (www.mauiceltic.com) is a resource and archive for all things Scottish and Celtic in Hawaii. He promotes Scottish and all other Celtic culture as a volunteer presenter of his popular Celtic music radio show.
Hamish was honoured to be named The Caledonian Society of Hawaii's 'Scot of the Year' for 2010, for services to the Scottish/Hawaiian community.

As Scottish Ambassador for The Princess Ka’iulani Project, Hamish also took the story of Hawaii’s most beloved Hawaii/Scot back to her father’s homeland in 2009, where he was a featured guest on BBC Scotland and Celtic Music Radio Glasgow, as well a contributor to Scottish national newspapers. He also reports freelance on Scottish events, such as The Gathering, for local Hawaii and mainland newspapers.

He has traveled the world extensively for 27 years, exploring the cultures of everywhere he lived and visited, as a professional scuba-diver at that time, and an avid surfer to this day, bringing him to Oahu for 2 years, then Maui for over almost two decades.

Previously while living in Cornwall, U.K. he was a graphic artist and screen-printer, also owning his own clothing company, before emigrating in 1992. He now focuses his artistic side on traditional and modern Celtic art in various mediums, and has been commissioned for book and album covers, and holds the State tattoo artist license. He regularly spends time in the ancient Celtic areas of Britain, Ireland and Europe, studying ancient works of Celtic art, and visiting other artists.

Hamish is also a well-known local bagpiper, a founding member of The Maui Celtic Pipes and Drums, a non-profit bagpipe band serving the Maui community, now renamed The Isle of Maui Pipe Band. He is now a solo player at 'Fleetwoods on Front St.', and plays for weddings and cultural events throughout Hawaii.

In the summer of 2000, he traveled to Scotland to represent Maui and the Hawaiian Islands in The Millennium Pipe March, where the biggest gathering of pipers ever marched through Edinburgh, and raised money for the Marie Curie Cancer Research charity.

He is also a promoter of traditional Celtic music, producing concerts on Maui with partner Jennifer MacKay Fahrni, ranging from pubs and church halls, to the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. These include the world's top Scottish fiddler, Alasdair Fraser, the late Irish singing legend Liam Clancy, Michael Black of the famous Black Family of Ireland, and World Champion Bagpiper Jack Lee, to name but a few. He has organized his own Robert Burns Night on Maui for the last 11 years.

He was honoured to be an instigator of having Douglas Herring’s now famous Hawaii Tartan actually made into kilts being worn here in Hawaii, before it was officially recognized by the State.

Songs & traditions of the ancient Celtic new year Samhain (pronounced Sow-en), the Celtic Feast of the Dead, or the feast to the dying sun, marking the beginning of Winter. In Scotland, Cailleach Bheur, goddess of winter, began her reign. The Celts believed on that night between the passing of the old year, and the arrival of the new, that the veil between our world and the Otherworld (or spirit world) was thinnest, and that spirits and faerie folk could visit the human world, and vice versa, and that you could contact your passed ancestors. That belief has continued with today's Halloween traditions of witches and ghosts, etc. The Christian church called the festival 'The Feast of all Saints', on 'All Saints' Eve' or 'All Hallows' Eve', hence the term "Hallowe'en".

Sunday October 29th - Hamish Burgess had a Samhain/Halloween special on the Maui Celtic Radio Show streaming on Blues & Roots Radio DISCOVER channel at http://www.bluesandrootsradio.com/brr-discover.html. Songs & traditions of the ancient Celtic new year Samhain (pronounced Sow-en), the Celtic Feast of the Dead, or the feast to the dying sun, marking the beginning of Winter. In Scotland, Cailleach Bheur, goddess of winter, began her reign. The Celts believed on that night between the passing of the old year, and the arrival of the new, that the veil between our world and the Otherworld (or spirit world) was thinnest, and that spirits and faerie folk could visit the human world, and vice versa, and that you could contact your passed ancestors. That belief has continued with today's Halloween traditions of witches and ghosts, etc. The Christian church called the festival 'The Feast of all Saints', on 'All Saints' Eve' or 'All Hallows' Eve', hence the term "Hallowe'en".

I learned a lot from him. We drank whisky, raised a wee bit o’hell, fought like cats & dogs, knocked down walls, built more, including a few between us, like most good Celts! The man is a legend amongst his friends, and enemies too I’m sure. The Black Bear of Maui roars no more…..except in the next place! Sean, mo chara…. you were a lot more than a friend.
