My alltime favorite Celtic CDs are the CDs that you can find in random stands in stores like Walmart or something like that. I buy them all, my favorites are Celtic Nights, Celtic Dance, Bagpipes, and Celtic Sounds. I love them!
My sister makes a lot of mix CDs and I have about three of them and it's all a bunch of different irish folk songs. Those are really good too.
Also, recently my older sister and two of my younger brothers and sisters put an album together. Gwen played guitar, Steph and Anna sang, Becket plated banjo and guitar, and Andrew played tin whistle and recorder. I was asked to be in the band but I didn't have time. I was taking summer school and working. So it's kind of a bummer that I am not on the album but oh well. I sent one of my whistle to Andrew and whole bunch of music and instructions and since he knew recorder he was able to pick up the whistle pretty fast, so I guess you can say that that was my contribution to the album. Anyway, my point is is that I really like that CD too. Maybe I'll get Gwen's permission to give a copy of it to Macfive and maybe it can be on the playlist. Who knows.
There's a dear little plant that grows in our Isle
Twas St . Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun of his labour with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the
Mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.
