I don't know of any local celtic groups though there must be one somewhere around here in the Celtic part of Oakland, California. But lesser-known musicians that I can't get enough of include:

Ian MacDougall, a Cape Breton fiddler;
Chris Sherburn & Denny Bartley, an Irish concertina and guitar duo;
Bohala, an Irish-American group from Chicago;
Noel Hill, an Irish concertina player.

My absolute favorite is Loreena McKinnett! I have every single one of her CDs. I also think The Mummer's Dance is probably one of the best song ever written! I also love Runrig, Altan. Just recently have been introduced to Capercaillie and John MacLean Allan and Slainte Mhath, who I like very well.

I love the bagpipe and drum music, especially the song Scotland the Brave. Can anyone recommend their favorite pipe music? angel_not.gif

Excellent topic. Hmm, I would have to go with Planxty, Chieftans, Tannahill Weavers, Wolfstone and the Bothy Band.

We have some excellent local Irish talent in the Philly area and my favorites are the Hooligans, Blackthorn and Drowsy Maggie.

I will listen to anything with a celtic flair, and thats why I love this site!

I have many favourite artists including Loreena McKennitt, Connie Dover, Meav, Runrig, Donnie Munro, Wolfstone, Iron Horse, Dougie MacLean, Burach, Natalie MacMaster, Irish Rovers, and many others.

Outside the Celtic genre, I'm a fan of David Arkenstone, Sarah Brightman, The Men They Couldn't Hang, Mediaeval Baebes, Dixie Chicks, Shania Twain, and one solitary Metal band, Running Wild - an awesome band from Germany and with a unique and superb sound and style (with a pirate/seafaring concept and image), the only Metal band I still support. Their music is timeless. rockon.gif

wow...so much music...so little time.
Just a quick run-down of my favs:

Irish/Scottish
Hamish Moore and Dick Lee (these guys are great!!)
Lunasa
Paddy Keenan and Emon Dillion
Liz Caroll (and Martin Hayes!)

Other Folk
BOB DYLAN!! all the way man. Blonde on Blonde is where it's at
Jerry Garcia (just got the pizza tapes a day or two ago...wow)
Woods Tea Company
Bela Fleck and the Flecktones (gotta love the hippo)

Classical
Wagner, I finally got to listen to all of Tannhauser the other day and it's one of my favorties now.
Schubert has been growing on me lately too.
Oh...and Beethoven Piano Sonatas. The Waldstein Sonata never ceases to amaze me.

Jazz
I've always been a Coltrane fan. (based on a biography I read one time....I guess Coltrane had bought a set of highland pipes and was toying them right before he died)
Cannonball Adderley is also great. I have a cut of him just rocking out on Sack-o-Woe. Good stuff.

Cheers
