Celtic Music

Listen to cuts from some great traditional Celtic music. You will need the RealAudio plug-in at 28.8 to hear these clips. For those of you at 14.4, sorry. It’s just that I didn’t think that the sound of someone simultaneously gargling a fiddle and scrubbing out a toilet made for much in the way of listening.

Julia Delaney’s (69K)
This is Eileen Ivers playing a traditional Irish tune in a not so traditional way. It is from her first solo album entitled simply Eileen Ivers, Traditional Irish Music. She is an incredibly hot player and this is a great album. Not for strict traditionalists though. Check it out.

Pigeon on the Gate (144K)
The legendary Kevin Burke playing a great old standard unaccompanied. This is from a live recording called The Celtic Fiddle Festival which also features Johnny Cunningham and Christian Lemaitre. More great fiddling than you can shake a stick at.

Schottisch du Stockfisch (141K)
From Ad Vielle Que Pourra’s first album, New French Folk Music. Traditional instruments used to play new folk songs in non-traditional settings. Hurdy gurdy, bouzouki, bombardes, Flemish pipes and on. Unique Breton sounds from this Canadian group.

An Grianán/Horse with a Heart (153K)
From Altan’s 1989 album Horse with a Heart. One of my favorite groups.

Tommy Peoples/The Windmill/Fintan McManus's (189K)
Altan again. From their album Island Angel. This is a great set.

All these albums and artists are put out by Green Linnet Records.
