Blue grass has a firm rooting from Celtic linage.

I'd occasionally listen to Celtic Frost a bit back in the day.

I wonder if Tom G Warrior is still even alive today.

I love Celtic music and I think this album is one of the best I have ever heard. "Liege and Lief" by Fairport Convention with vocals by the late Sandy Denny. This band also has a long history with member of Jethro Tull over the years.

Matty Groves

Just listen to the lyrics, brings chills down my spine. If you can find it this CD is a must have IMHO for any Celtic music fan.

Good stuff. I love the fiddles and the pipes.

I switch back and forth between celtic and jazz for background music when I'm studying.

The Pogues are my favorite Celtic-flavored band, but I'll thrown in a shout out to Enya, The Corrs, and Flogging Molly too. There's a lot of great traditional stuff out there too, like the vid the OP posted.

I have been obsessed with piobaireachd for the past 13 or so years. Players like Angus MacColl is why.

Hip on Galician music as well.

Check out Molly's Revenge and the Wicked Tinkers.



They both play the usual Scottish Games circuit around the western US.
They come here every year and we spend several enjoyable hours with them.
Very good stuff.

Check out Gaelic Storm. They are a good irish band. Saw them live, and they are good.

Had a couple good threads not too long ago*

"Anyone Into Celtic?"

and I have been obsessed with Irish Folk music lately"

I just got back to the house from seeing Solas tonight. They put on a great show as usual, and we got to play a few sets of tunes in a session of sorts before the show. It was very cool.

(*not complainin', just sayin' )

Cute girls stroking a pleasing tune from their violins... How can it go wrong?

I love it as well... Love the theme from Last of the Mohicans as shown above...

Alasdair Gillies and his father are also Great... Alasdair used to do a Bit where he'd play Cabar Feidh as a March, Slow Air, Strathspey, Reel, Hornpipe and Jig. Same Tune but in different times. Good guy to drain a Pint with too.

This kraut likes it.

I like Enya and the traditional celtic...but... there is something about bagpipes in a rock band that gets me. Once in a while, I'll have a couple of beers while working in my shop and crank up some Runrig or Wolfstone...sheer bliss!

Yeah, I'm a fan of Celtic Music. :)

Some of my favorites:

Gaelic Storm (these guys kick ass)
Dougie Maclean (tends to folkie stuff)
Clannad (early stuff is fairly traditional Celtic, later stuff is new agey)
The Pogues
Flogging Molly
Ashely MacIsaac

That's just a few.
