I'm wondering if other members can help me find artists similar to the Wicked Tinkers. I like their very traditional sound but it is upbeat and very well recorded. Some traditional music, like regimental pipers, etc. are nice but the recording quality isn't the best. I guess I just need another artist to consider when the Wicked Tinkers have already been requested recently.

I hope there are! But I'm afraid they may be a one-off. Hope someone can come up with more like them.
"Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of government. The history of liberty is the history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it."
BTW...if you are just looking for some driving traditional music that will get your toe tapping...I can't help but recommend the Bothy Band. I'd suggest either their "Best of Album" or one called "Out of the Wind and into the Sun"
I appreciate everyones input. I am basically looking for something to get in the mood to play my hockey games. Every once in a while I like to hear some pipes to get in the mindset, so it is hard to find something to listen to that isn't a jig or a reel. I almost wish there was an album out of tunes the Royal pipers would play to go into battle. I know, I am a little wierd but most goalies are.
I grew up with Regimental music. My Dad served in a Highland regiment. If you do a search for Regimental Pipe Music, I'm sure that you'd find plenty of stirring marches?
The school of Piping for the United Kingdom is based near my childhood home in Edinburgh. It used to be torture when I was a teenager, lying in bed on a non-school day after a late night... you couldn't escape the practice sessions.... Fine the first 20 times....! And when they were getting ready for the Tattoo - the volume seemed to escalate.
