The Best of Celtic Music

>> Thursday, March 17, 2011

Happy St. Paddy's Day!
Let's celebrate with a bit of music, shall we?

Altan
A legendary band, and arguably Ireland's best traditional one.

Hayley Westenra
She has the most gorgeous voice I've ever heard.

Julie Fowlis
The only artist who sings in native Scottish Gaelic.

Natalie MacMaster
She does things with a fiddle I never thought possible.

Cherish the Ladies
A fantastic band full of the lovliest voices you'll ever hear.

Déanta
The band that introduced me to Celtic music.

Loreena McKennitt
She sings/composes both World and Celtic music in
her stunning voice.

Enya
Even though she doesn't do Celtic music,
there's no denying that Enya is the absolute best
thing to ever come out of Ireland.

WOW. I LOVE the Hayley Westenra song! It is incredibly beautiful! Thanks for sharing all these songs - they're wonderful! Most I'd never heard, so it was fun to hear them!

Happy St. Patrick's Day,

(Hey, you forgot the Chieftans!)

Awesome-filled collection of music; my friend saw Cherish the Ladies a few years back.
Wow, I'm definitely checking out Natalie MacMaster.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I Am An Otter

You're an otter, mate! Another good friend of Redwall, you are a natural swimmer and a deadly fighter especially with a long bow or javellin. Camp Willow is your home, just as Redwall is your second home. You have a good heart and a strong sense of loyalty. You absolutely love Shrimp and Hotroot soup, living by the motto "Ain't nothing 'otter for an Otter!".
