I wish I had come back here sooner. Thats a great idea, RebbecaAnn! Of course I haven't looked to see if there is that type of forum already etarted, but I don''t remember coming across anything when I was exploring. I don't know many people who don't have a least 1 Celtic ancestor. My informal polling of friends & neighbors found a large number of Irish/German & Irish/Italian mixes. I have always felt more connected to my Irish side and would love to learn more about the history of their music. Maybe someone will run with this.....I hope!

There is a wonderful movie called The Songcatcher, it is a must see.
It explains the Celtic influence in Mountain music.

Songcatcher - yes, a good movie!

The history of folk and country music is far more detailed and nuanced than most people would assume.

From Ireland and Scotland, influenced by African slaves and customized by immigrants, songs morphed as they migrated west.

Is the movie Songcatcher based on the book with the same name by Sharyn McCrumb?
She's one of my favorite author's and her books are based in Appalachia and the people that settled there.

When I first started listening to Celtic music, it was a lot of traditional psalms and intrumental pieces. Celtic rock came next, then the cross overs like Celtic Thunder came onto the scene. I like these radio stations a lot because of the variety smile.gif I listen to it whenever I am working at a computor. My roommate is even slowly starting to get interested in the music! (She's still on the dark side concerning bagpipes, but it's only a matter of time wink.gif )

You know, it's amazing to think of all of the sub-genres of Celtic Music. The Dark side of bagpipes - try out some of those German Bavarian pipe bands and you will be in for a surprise!

I think the movie is based on works by Olive Dame CAmpbell.

She collected songs and started a school of some kind in North Carolina.

Songcatcher is a good movie somewhat marred by the Hollywood lesbian love affair and the ensuing violence. It would have been much better if they had just stuck to the music but then nobody would have watched it I guess.

I listen to both Highlander and Celtic Radio on a regular basis and rarely hear something that I don't like. If not for the variety I would not listen very long.

I am now listining the the Celtic Chrismas music on Highlander and enjoy it sooo much. I was listening to the local FM station nonstop Christmas music and had to turn it off after hearing Rockin around the Christmas Tree and Holly Jolly Christmas for the 37the time...

Our "A Celtic Christmas" broadcast seems to be really taking off this season. We had to purchase additional slots for we were running out of listener slots.

We also have had ALOT of Christmas CDs submitted to us since November. Do not remember having that many submissions, so I guess the word is out.

I do like to hear the standard Christmas songs when I am out driving around, but when I come home and put a fire in the place, turn the Christmas light on and lower the lighting - there is nothing more perfect than "A Celtic Christmas"

Thanks for everyones kind comments this year!
