Interesting, I find that two of those CDs have been in my collection for some time. I picked up a copy of Karen Casy's Distant Shore in a Galway music store, and had ordered Déanta's Whisper of a Secret and Ready for the Storm some time way back. There's some good music there.
My favorite tracks from Distant Shore:
The Ballad of Tim Evans
Bata os Bóthar
The Four Loom Weaver
The Jute-Mill Song
Poet and seeker of knowledgeMountain Legacy
-- Born in the isles, raised in Appalachia
