awww it has to be Capercaillie at the moment followed closely by our local bands - Celtic Plus and The Jimmies.
We have these dances down at the local hall during the winter months. They're great and have a real old time U.K. feel about it. It's so good for us to get back to our roots particularly when you are 5 generations away from the 'homeland' and not allowed to return to the land of our forefathers, except for holidays so we make our own bit of home with the music which does nicely thank you.
And now I will find some more with this super site.

I like The Crossing, Clannad,....
Who else is there? [Pooh]Think, think, think[/Pooh]
I've heard just enough Connie Dover & Mary Black to know that I like them, but not enough to know how much.
Bunch of other people that I can't of off the top of my head as well.
The McKrells are a pretty cool Bluegrass band with Celtic influences.

FloweroftheWest, The Song of Albion trilogy is an excellent series. smile.gif I've read it about 3-4 times.
The first book is The Paradise War, and yes, the second & thrid are The Silver Hand, & The Endless Knot.

My Da used to have a tape of music inspired by The Paradise War, but he gave it to a friend of his years ago & I've not seen it since. sad.gif

You're right about how well researched he is. I first read them before I knew anything about Celtic mytholgy and was surprised as I went along just how many things I recognised from the boks. smile.gif

I'm rambling aren't I? heh.............

We now return you to your regulary scheduled thread

I listen to just about everything. If we're talking Celtic though - Dougie MacLean, Ed Miller, Alasdair Fraser, Capercaille (did I spell that right?), Corsairs (not totally Celtic, but they've got some great songs including Hielan' Laddie), and Old Blind Dogs.

We need some rating in between "like it" and "Love it!" LOL Could we get an "I'm really fond of this song, and would like to listen to it more, but it's not the top on my list because I haven't heard it enough?"

Hi all. I am new to Celtic music (from the US) and new to this site. We have recently lucky enough to go see The Old Blind Dogs. I think they are fantastic. I don't hear too much about them on this forum.

Can anyone give me an overall view of how OBD fits into the Celtic music scene?

I'm new to this forum and new to the site (although i'vbe been listening to it for a few years now). I may be off here, but the first celtic CD I ever bought is still my favorite- Sons of Somerled. Steve McDonald does awesome work. His music is haunting and uplifting at the same time. He also throws in quite a bit of a history lesson when he can. I also like Gary Stadler-although he may be considered new age he is played on this site. He is one to listen to when you go to bed at night or just want to relax. Steve McDonald is who you listen to anytime you need an emotional jarring around, or just want to sit around and tip a few. I also listen to him to get me all worked up before soccer games and search warrants. angel_not.gif beer_mug.gif beer_mug.gif

At the moment I am in a Christy Moore mood, though I've only found one station online that plays his music and I haven't been able to find any of his cds in the US. I also like Connie Dover, Sean and Dolores Keane, Capercaille, Solas, Gaelic Storm, Great Big Sea, Seven Nations . . . the list could go on and on.

I really like Heather Dale. I have 2 of her CD's - she has a great voice. "What's up yours?" is hilarious! "Highway Man" by Loreena McKinnet is great and one of my favorites.

Wicked Tinkers are BADASS live! Tempest is very good, Cuillin (not around anymore), Shooglenifty rocks Celt style, Seven Nations, Black 47 is good pub music.
I'm also very eclectic, anything but rap and "light rock".

I like just about every kind of Celtic music, whether it is trad. or not. Great Big Sea has been my favorite since 6th grade - I'm a freshman in college now. The Cottars are a really good new - and very young - group. I saw them during the summer. Basically, my CD collection consists of a lot of Celtic music with a sprinkling of some other stuff.

One of my Favorite Songs that I have not been able to find here is "RAGLAN ROAD" sung by Fair Isle Folk.

I found this and other good song by sung by:

Barleycorn, Dublin City Ramblers, Mary Black, Paddy Reilly, De Danann, Makem & Clancy, Johnny McEvoy and Brian Byrne.

This is a cassette GOLDEN SOUNDS OF IRISH FOLK produced in association with Dolphin Traders Ltd., 56 Moore Street, Dublin 1

New here, since I finally got a connection fast enough to use Itunes on the better stations. Some of my favorite Celtic and celtic influenced bands are Steeleye Span, Clam Chowder, Tears for Beers(OK their german but I love their version of Raggle taggle gypsy and Step it out Mary), tempest, Dust Rhinos and Anwwn(Shame aboutt them breaking up).
