While I'm a fan of some of the larger, more recognized bands and performers, I've also taken a liking to some smaller, more local acts. Anyone out there familiar with the Hooligans or Blackthorn from Philly?

What are you guys listening to?

This will be a heavily discussed topic. I've liked Loreena McKennitt since I saw the last two Highlander movies, which featured "Bonny Portmore". I love the Irish Rovers, especially The Unicorn Song. They played in my area back in March and I didn't even know sad.gif . A lot of people like Enya. The only song of hers I like is the Gaelic version of Silent Night. I also like hearing the bagpipes being played (especially "Amazing Grace", "Scotland the Brave", and Highland Cathedral). But that's just me. My taste in music in general ranges in just about everything from AC/DC to ZZ Top. Like right now on my computer, iTunes is playing my download of "How Great Thou Art" by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Not sure but if I must choose then perhaps my favourites are Capercaillie, The Chieftains and The Pogues.

Favourite song I have heard on Highlander Radio is Ravens by Clann An Drumma.
I'm requesting that song everytime I get the chance.

Yeah, I know. The only thing I won't listen to is Pop/Top 40. That kind of music turns my stomach. Those artists have no creative ability IMHO. That is why I will never watch the show American Idol.

I like all sorts of music - classical, jazz, R & B, really old Country Music (i.e. George Jones, Hank Williams, Sr., Charley Pride, Johnny Cash), and Rock and Roll (Beatles, collectively and as individual artists, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Rod Stewart). A lot of the Celtic Music I like reminds me of the folk songs we grew up with...my fav celtic song is The Flower of Scotland.

BTW, you know you're getting old when you know all the words to the elevator music....

I also like hearing modern versions of older songs. In fact, last night I downloaded two versions of "Whiskey in the Jar"-one by U2 recorded live in Dublin in '97, and the other is by Metallica off their Garage, Inc. album.

I like Capercaillie, Silly Wizzard and SOME of Runrig's stuff wink.gif

I really like the Scottish folk music that I grew up with, particularly the Corries - who I saw so many times that I can't count. In fact Roy Williamson was a a relief Art teacher at my school when I was in my late teens - talk about starstruck!!

Although it sounds like it is a traditional folk song from the 1700s or 1800s, in fact, Roy wrote 'O, Flower of Scotland' - I THINK in the late 60s. It was adopted as the 'national anthem' for the Scottish Rugby team in 1970 or so..... Unfortunately, poor Roy died just before he could hear the huge crowds at Murrayfield singing the song.... sad.gif

I love traditional Scottish fiddle music, Ally MacBain etc.

Hi! I've been lurking, but had to add my $.02 on this topic -- Dougie Maclean is, at least in my opinion, one of the best singer/songwriters to come out of Scotland ever. I love his music and will travel hundreds of miles to get to a concert!
