There are so many types of Irish music out there now, which do you perfer: Celtic Traditional or Celtic Rock? Why? Ever heard Celtic Blues?

I'd have to say both. I like hearing new stuff, but I also like hearing "Scotland The Brave" and "Whiskey in the Jar".

I prefer to hear traditional Celtic reels and jigs. With that said...
If it wasn't for the Celtic Rock bands, we would not be doing the business we are!!!

I don't mind going to Irish Pubs with traditional music, but going and acting-up with the Celtic Rock bands is unparalelled!!! The Hooligans, Blackthorn, The Real McKenzies, Wicked Tinkers, Stone Soup, The Dicey Riley Band, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, The Pubcrawlers, Bogside Rogues... all are friends of ours who really know how to carry on the Celtic music tradition through their own ways.

I like both. That being said, I would sometimes love to be able to do 100% trad. in my group. But, with there only being 2 of us...( that is impossible) it has morfed into a weird not 100% trad, not quite "rock" ( no distortion) . But VERY up beat. We do the old standards "BLACK VELVET BAND", I'll Tell me Ma"... and do the heavier "Follow me up to Carlow", or "The night that Paddy Murphy died".... I have noticed that the 100% Trad is nice, but people grow tired of it fairly quickly in pubs. The focus is not totally on whoever is playing. But, if you kick things up and drive it hard and fast 90% of the night. You'll have them up dancing all night. And that becomes a real PARTY! wink.gif thumbs_up.gif

I have seen a Celtic Blues group locally THE FLOCK. They are very good! But, with it having that slow blues drive, again I have seen people lose interest. It's great to listen to. But, if I'm going somewhere to listen to a group I want to be entertained. And that is my mindset when I play out. What would I think is fun, and keep me staying until the pub closes? So far, everyone at the live shows has agreed with what I think is fun. smile.gif

I've only been playing Celtic music a little over 2 years. I've been listening for years and years. But, my musical back round is Heavy metal and Classical. So I guess that's why I want to kick everything into 5th gear....LOL!

Cheers!

There is an old Celtic Blues group called Pentangle. Good group. Some may find them a bit odd. If I remeber the liner notes, they were out late 69's to mid 70's. You can find there stuff on Shanachie records web site.

here is a link to a web page about them

I like a little bit of both. If I'm studying, I stick to traditional, but if I'm cleaning the dorm room up (on the odd and rare occassion that that happens) or if my roommates and I decide to have a little dance party in our rooms, I break out the rock.
It blows me away how popular both styles of music have become here lately. I've had friends that I would never have thought would have even heard of any Celtic music period tell me they love that style of music and I saw a music video for Dropkick Murphys the other day on CNT (College Network Television), which is like MTV. Now if I could just get the music store here in my hole-in-the-wall town to carry a decent supply of Celtic cds . . .

Being that I didn't grow up with it, I prefer to hear the rock side. But I am listening more and more to the traditional, especially through this website. And to quote Cailiosa, there is not alot of Celtic tradition and culture around this area. I have to get most of it off of this site. We had a store in the local mall at one time that carried some Celtic music, but of course they closed it down after I bought the first two CD's. (Both Steve McDonald).

Nobody around where I live carries celtic c.ds, rock or traditional.. Although a lot of my friends like this type of music and a store could earn a lot of money selling those c.ds here, but no one had taken the clue. I prefer traditional, mainly, at times though I can prefer rock....
It almost always depends on the mood I'm in.. as macfive said

I like classic music and traditional pubs type that is loud and fast and I like the Celtic Rock but I'm not to fond of those irish tenors and Lancelot and Guenivere stuff. I'm sure Heather Dale is a wonderful girl I just feel like she wishes she was back in the middle ages.

I like both =)
Celtic Rock is great for kick **** partying, and keeping up the "I'l do it *MY* way" type mood, traditional works wonders pretty much anywhere else, while both do great for that middle ground.

I like traditional tunes, especially if it has pipes. But some of the Celtic Rock stuff really sounds great. I'd never imagined hearing bagpipes along with heavy rock drums and electric guitar but it can really be pulled off well!

It gets me pumped up to go out and play hockey. Of course, the teammates hate it. Guess it may have to be in your blood.

Try listening to OFFKILTER. www.offkilter.net (I think). I guess they play at Epcot Center at Disney World, FLA. in the Canadian Pavilian year round. Friends that traveled there told me about them and I found one of their CD's at a highland games. I wish they were on highlander radio.

I think I am more open on style
like traditional (the Chieftains, the Tannahill Weavers, Dougie MacLean)
like rock style (Seven nations, The Wolfstone, earlier time U2)
like new age (Clannad, Enya, Sinead O'Connor, Ronan Hardiman)
like new style (Loreena McKennitt, Anuna, Steve McDonald)
no matter from Scotland, Ireland, England, USA, Canada, Australia/New Zealand

I like it all! To quote BB King,"There are 2 kinds of music, the good kind and the bad kind, I like the good kind."

I started playing Celtic music in 1999 and started doing some traditional pieces in 2000. The more that I get into the traditional the more I like it, but I usually like to play it in a non-traditional way. I listen to a lot of Bluegrass also which has it's roots in Celtic music.

We coined the term Neo-Celtic for our band when we started our website in 1999 and have since defined that in a broader sense as music done by Celtic people i.e. The Cranberries, U-2, The Corrs, Van Morrison. I realize that many who would fall into this catagory do not necesarily Celtic sounding, yet that is how we define the term. I did see Nazareth (from Scotland) do an interesting rendition of Hair of the Dog with Dan McCafferty playing the Scottish national anthem during the Bag pipe break. It was so cool that I suggested to their manager that it might behoove them to explore the possibility of exploiting their nationality and do more stuff like that.

My background is in Folk and Gothic as a musician previous to starting the Neo-Celtic thing. We have since redefined what we personally do as Celtic-Fusion. We now fuse traditional Celtic and Modern Pop sounds. A good example of how we do that would be either our original song Dreams or the 12th century Celtic piece that we do A Soulin. Plus we now can perform about 24 traditional Celtic pieces.


Peace

Mikel
