Picking one favorite Celtic CD?? Why don't you ask me to talk about your age or weight while I'm at it.  Losing battle either way.  Soo so very many excellent CDs.  I've started thinking of the following answer to the question:

www.celticradio.net

I have several favorite Celtic CDs
on the other hand, I buy it once I like it (dled mp3s)
I have over 40 Celtic CDs, and I like them all
it's IMPOSSIBLE to pick up the best

REMOVED OFFENSIVE POST

I can dl the stream
but use this way ONLY for offline listening (e.g. subway), and delete it after listening
there're several CDs I ordered after I'd listened here
once I like it, I buy it

that's it

My favorite cd's are all of the ones by Celtic Soul. I bought them at a local Celtic shop and at their live performances (those are autographed). And I like Aine Minogue, I have Celtic Moon. Since I've been listening to Celtic Radio, I like Noiseful Joy and The Brobdingnagian Bards.

My favourite cd of the moment would have to be Ar Mhuin na Muice by ehrm, myself. Well it cost me 20,000 big ones, so I'd better bleedin' like it, innit? Luckily, the reviewers seem to like it too. "Bewitching" is what Hotpress Magazine in Dublin wrote.

If you'd like to listen for yourself, please visit my website: Bríd Ní Mhaoileoin. You can also have a look at my "Cd Grand Tally"
(remember savekaryn.com?).

Thanks for reading!
Slán,
Bríd

The sound link on her site smile.gif Think I'll sample some smile.gif


nice smile.gif I perticularly like
"Bídeach na gCarad" and "Green Grows the Laurel". I think I'll like "Caidé sin don tsé sin?" as well, but I've got to either turn up the volume to load it into a wav editor and increase the level on it first, so I can hear it better smile.gif

ok smile.gif May have another CD for my to-buy list smile.gif Still deciding, but promising smile.gif I like what I hear in the samples. "Caidé sin don tsé sin?" is a little weak on balancing the vocals, but I guess that's permissable for a demo recording. Sounds like it's got a good rythem to it. And I do like the vocals. Just think they should be brought to the front a bit more smile.gif

I really like David Arkenstone's Celtic CD's. I like the new age sound he adds to the music.

Thanks! I'm glad you like them. The demo version of "Caidé sin don tsé sin?" in my samples is very badly mixed. It was recorded with Antonio Breschi (really worth checking out www.ethnicpiano.com) and unfortunately we let Antonio too close to the mixing table! rolleyes.gif laugh.gif The melody on the demo is the most common melody sung to this song. I recorded the song on my cd to another tune and with only bodhrán accompaniment. The melody I used is a very rare one brought to light by Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh of Altan and recorded on their album "Runaway Sunday".

Slán,

The Rankin Family's first 3 cds are prime - The Rankin Family
Fare Thee Well
North Country
I also love Capercaillie's Sidewaulk cd and Altan's Harvest Storm is great.

Finally, a must have is the Barra MacNeil's Christmas cd. It may sound weird to recommend a Christmas cd in this poll, but anyone who has heard it will know what I am talking about - from the kicking instrumentals to the deeply moving carols in Gaelic and English. It rocks!

I love older Seven Nations. I just discovered Clann An Drumma at the Glasgow,Ky games. They are great! Also like Loreena McKennitt, especially Book of Secrets. I've got to agree. Choosing one is impossible note.gif

I most definitely agree with the older Seven Nations stuff. Actually, I like their newer stuff as well, but it's a different sound: much less Celtic.

My favorite Celtic CD is Big Dog by Seven Nations, and a close second is Rain and Thunder, also by Seven Nations.

For the person who heard that Wolfstone has broken up, that's not true. I heard them for the first time this past Labor Day weekend and thoroughly enjoyed them. I look forward to getting a few of their CD's (hopefully) in the near future.

Celtic Rose, as others have said, you ask a hard thing.

Lately I've been enjoying (apart from Highlander Radio) Karen Matheson (Capercaille), Dochas (my son brought the CD back from Scotland), and Mark Saul (first heard here, CD on order.
