While we have a steady stream of non-label music, we would like to supplement this with the latest music that we may not necessarily receive directly from the artist and is part of one of the major labels.

Our license through Live365 allows us to play all major labels, so if there is a major release by a well known artist such as Great Big Sea, Natalie MacMaster, etc. - please post it here so we can try and obtain this music ourselves. We will try and obtain a CD from the artist and if that fails we do have a small budget each month for new music.

Thanks for your help and hoping to hear about some great new releases!

Try the group "Smithfield Fair" as I haven't yet heard a piece by them on Highlander Radio - although I am relatively new. www.smithfieldfair.com

I don't see anything in here on the band, Clandestine. did I miss it? If not? You need to find out who they are and listen!. The main musician for me is piper, EJ Jones. If I am not mistaken, he founded Clandestine but then got involved with The Rogues for a few years. I discovered this very talented piper when he played with the Rogues. I had the opportunity to meet and hear him play with his once again band, Clandestine! Emily, the lead singer has one of the most beautiful voices I have heard. All musicians in this band are extremely talented! They have a new CD out called, "Red."

Just found this band tonight by the name of Brother. I haven't heard of them before but they ar from Austrailia-now in US. They have about 15 albums out.

Here is a link to the website.

http://www.brothermusic.com/

There is a media player on the left hand side were you can listen to a couple of selections by hitting the double arrows. Otherwise they just switch on their own-normal stuff Check out the Romp and Circumstance edit. (3rd selection)

I know the boys of The Fuchsia Band have got a new album in the works. I'm thinking it might be out this fall. If I hear of any others I'll certainly let you know.

Posted by: Senara 10-Jul-2009, 11:20 AM
here I was gonna edit my last post but I guess that's not the right button. Oh well.

You might want to look at the list for Rounder Records Corp. and have a listen to The Cottars. I don't know if they've got multiple albums out but I do have a copy of "Forerunner" released in 2006 and I play it often. I did have the good fortune of seeing them perform live and it was a fantastic show.

Welcome Coastychick,

My father & his family are from Portchester, though I live in Kentucky. I haven't heard of the group Coast, but Highlander Radio has 3 of their songs available for the request line. Put Coast in the search field at the very top of this website, then narrow to "artist" search.

I'm going to request them and give them a try.

Skully's music makes a perfect gift. It's like opening an endless gift box. It just keeps on giving!

Be sure to allow plenty of time for delivery. Postal service from Ireland to USA can take up to ten days.

Thanks GramPam you are so right ~ Skully's Irish Makeover has done Very well here on Celtic Radio ~

Here's a few words from Skully about this fantastic album ~

I cannot take credit for the concept here, that accolade must go to Charlie Pinder Sony/V2/Burlywood. One rainy winters night in Cork, he came up with the idea of doing Old Irish folk songs, a la Skully! And so two years ago I set to work creating Skully versions of these beautiful old Irish songs. Although very electronic (after all that is what I do!) I strove to maintain the powerful emotion that these timeless master pieces possess. The album was recorded at the beautiful Rushbrook Hotel in Cobh, where I was spoilt rotten! and at my little cottage (Seen in the photos) I would like to sincerely thank all the artists who gave me their time and talent, each adding his or her own color and style to the songs. We had great fun making it! I hope everyone supporting it here, has the same fun listening! Skully.

Band Members Skully, with guests : Annette Buckley, Kate Murphy, Myles O'Reilly, Mick Flannery and Karl Nesbitt.

I've been feeling a bit piratey lately so I wondered around trying to find some new pirate music. Pirate magazine recomends a scottish band called AleStorm. If Flogging Molly did pirate songs they would sound somewhat similar. Heavy metal Pirate tunes. I put a couple of videos on Videocelt if any one wants to check them out otherwise here is their MySpace link

Hey loving this list - especially Brother, can;t believe I have never heard of these guys, being from down under myself n all. guess they just focus on the US?

Posted by: heartsong 02-Jun-2010, 09:13 AM
The group Sephira from Ireland is great. They have 2 CD's available at CD Baby http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/Sephira or http://www.sephira.ie

Celtic Thunder also has 2 CD's that haven't been added to the database. They're called "Take Me Home" & "It's Entertainment." Adding them would allow for more variety of their music.

Posted by: Shadows 18-Jul-2010, 07:32 AM
Heard this group last night at a local pub http://www.drymillroad.com/ .
They would go real good in our Bluegrass feed!

They have some sound bites in the web page and also have a facebook page.

If you visit them tell them Shadows sent you.

Posted by: Sekhmet 21-Aug-2010, 06:38 PM
Wylde Nept! They're a band out of Iowa, but I've seen them a few times over the years. Great pub band, I've been a fan for a good while now.

The Clanranald Trust for Scotland is a wonderful site preserving Scottish History. This band really rocks. Will get some youtubes of them as well up on www.videocelt.com. If you have a favorite feel free to suggest a video.

That goes for everyone on all these wonderful suggestions. We will look into getting what you want to hear on the site. If it hasn't been added already. There's 1000's of cd's coming in. Thanks for all your suggestions.

I have been listening a few days on the "Celtic Rock" channel. I am surprised that I have not heard any music yet from any of these bands:

Seven Nations
Brother
Prydein
Killdares
Albannach
Angus Mohr
Enter the Haggis


Maybe you long-time listeners can tell me if these bands get any air time?

Thanks,

Posted by: Rindy 21-Jan-2011, 05:06 PM
Welcome pdtj I have heard all bands with the exception of Prydein. I don't see them listed in our music. All the other bands I have heard on Highlander Radio and Celtic Rock. Keep listening I'm sure you'll here them sooner or later. Give them a request. I hope your weather's great in Co.

I'd like to recommend a group called http://www.worldofomnia.com (in the past, aslo known as Omnia Neocelt)
They're A dutch band, though the frontman Steve originates from Cornwall, and one of the guitarists (Joe Hennon) is from Ireland, though he only plays at special occasions, due to other obligations. Their performances are in english though, and they sing in english (and in gaelic, indian/pakistani (don't know which of the 2) and gibberish)
A lot of their music, especially their older pieces, is inspired by / based on celtic classics, though they give it a unique twist.

they operate/publish under their own label (PaganScum Records)

Posted by: heartsong 28-Feb-2011, 03:20 PM
Na Fianna is a great group from Ireland and sound great. Their official site is
http://www.nafiannamusic.com So far they have only released a single, but they are talented. I'm hoping to see more from them.

I recommend Ken O'Malley, especially if you like traditional Irish music. My favorite album of his is "ÓMáille" but Amazon seems to think it's "Amaille" if you're looking for the CD format. Here's a link to the MP3 album so you can preview it http://www.amazon.com/%C3%93M%C3%A1ille/dp/B001BMQAKU/ref=tmm_msc_title_0

Hello,

I recommend a new band , http://fravimalmaniac.wordpress.com/, especially if you like Irish Rock music.
This band is composed by four members and they are French and draw inspiration from "http://www.ramoneursdemenhirs.fr/" (great Irish band in France).

They have made concert in different place from Toulouse and that was pretty good.

Hope you like it.

If you are still adding bluegrass music you need to check out O.C.M.S. ( Old Crow Medicine Show )... they are from New England and have my feet tapping.

Wagon Wheel is one of my favorites from the O.C.M.S. album.

How come there is no Steeleye Span or Fairport Convention in your play list? Those two groups are what got me interested in traditional music from the isles back in the late `60's early `70's.
Could you please add some?

Posted by: haynes9 27-Sep-2014, 10:35 AM
Let me recommend a wonderful group that I have had the privilege of seeing twice. That group is Runa (www.runamusic.com). Runa consists of Shannon Lambert-Ryan, Fionán de Barra, Cheryl Prashker, Dave Curley, and Maggie Estes. They would not consider themselves strictly a Trad band, but their "roots" definitely show in their music!

Shannon is the lead singer and she has a fantastic voice. Al the group are accomplished instrumentalists in their own right. Their shows are energetic, fun, and a real joy to attend!

Runa have been winning awards and developing a solid fan base of folks who love Celtic music. If you ever get a chance to hear them, you just can't miss them!

As is typical of many groups the genre, they are readily available at shows to visit with their fans. They never get in a hurry or make you feel like you are imposing on their time. I am going to see about getting some of their projects submitted for airplay here. By the way, Dave Curley has just released a solo project and it promises to be a good one!

Give these folks a listen! You'll be hooked, I'm sure!
