I am a semi-retired pastor as well as a husband, father and grandfather. I love Celtic music and its offshoot, American bluegrass. I love singers/harpists Aine Minogue and Orla Fallon and wish they would collaborate. Their differing spiritual perceptions and musical approaches would complement each other beautifully.

Have a great day, all

Howdy, Rogrev, from the great Navajo Nation in Northern Arizona where I have the privilege of serving as a missionary. Hope you are enjoying all you see and hear on the site. Feel free to post often and get to know the folks that inhabit these forums.

Welcome aboard and have a great day!

Thank you all for your welcome to me. Haynes9, are you Navajo yourself? I am part Huron (a Canadian nation, ethnically related to the Iroquois and known in the US as the Wendat or Wyandot) on my father's side. The Canadian Huron today live primarily in Quebec and the American Wendats in Kansas and Oklahoma. I grew up in Vermont, where my Dad's family moved from Canada in the late 19th century.

I detect some similarities between Celtic and Native American spirituality. Are you familiar with Loreena McKennitt's song, the Huron Beltane Fire Dance?

More later.

No, I'm not Navajo. I have a bit of Cherokee and my wife has some Choctaw and maybe some Comanche. Our Navajo friends say that we are so white that all of our Indian blood must have drained out tongue.gif !

Your Native heritage sounds fascinating. I have spent some time on the Six Nations Reserve in Ontario. I have Mohawk friends there. I'm not familiar with the song Huron Beltane Fire Dance, but now I'll have to listen to it! I play a Native American Flute and the sound does put you in a Celtic state of mind. R. Carlos Nakai is the best (part Navajo) and Mary Youngblood and Travis Terry are good, too.

Look forward to hearing more! Take care!

I hope my dialogue with haynes9 isn't boring everyone else. I am really excited about the connections I discern between Celtic and some Native American (or "First Nations") music. I am familiar with R. Carlos Nakai and Mary Youngblood because they both appeared on a peace album with two wonderful singers, Joanne Shenandoah and Lawrence Laughing. And I'm sure that Loreena McKennitt, who has recorded her musical impressions of many cultures, would say that there is indeed a spiritual connection between herself and those artists, just as Orla Fallon would likely acknowledge a profound connection between her music and the American bluegrass music of Nashville. (Orla has recorded two songs made famous by Alison Krauss, "Simple Love" and "Down to the River to Pray."

Us? Bore people? Naahhh! Not a couple of exciting guys like us tongue.gif !

Hey, all kinds of good conversation going on here! Orla's version of "Down to the River to Pray" was indeed really good! Thoroughly enjoyed it.

One of the first Native American flute players I came in contact with was Tom Ware (Comanche). If you can ever find one of his projects, it would be well worth a listen!
