Music is holy, art is sacred, and creativity is power

Some men are drawn to oceans, they cannot breathe unless the air is scented with a salty mist. Others are drawn to land that is flat, and the air is sullen and is leaden as August. My people were drawn to mountains- Earl Hamner Jr.
The O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack had to be the grooviest I've heard from a movie in a long time!
Has anyone ever heard of the Wicked Tinkers? I've heard of them and want to buy some of their stuff but I've not heard the music yet. If you've heard their stuff then please let me know!
I saw Cherish the Ladies in March. They performed with the Houston Symphony for the Irish Pops series. I don't know her name but they have this young lady with a voice that makes you want to pack your bags and hop the next flight to Ireland. And she was born and raised in Ireland as well.
Also...check out www.arkmusic.com. They have some great Celtic tunes inspired by the books of Stephen Lawhead...quite possibly the world's best author...in this century anyway. I put him up there with Tolkien and Lewis! arkmusic.com has other Celtic tunes as well. I just bought $63 worth of CD's from them and let me tell you, it was money well spent!
Agreed on Stephen Lawhead Macrae! Brilliant read, easy style and enough knowledge to build the excellent trilogy around those two travellers between Scotland and Albion ... (fascinating read that, thoroughly inspired by Celtic mythology, forgot the title of the first two, the third one is "The endless knot", is the second one "The Silver Hand" or something like that? I 've forgotten them in Germany grr).
And Arcmusic is good I 've got some stuff from them. And the Wicked Tinkers are cool ... Thanks to Paul they' re on the Playlist
