    is anyone here into celtic music? if so, who are your favorite Celtic artists?
    mine are Loreena McKennitt, Enya, Susan McKeown, maire brennan (pity her lyrics are too chriatian...), noirin ni riain, clannad, pentangle and Anuna (unbelieveable! celtic and gregorian gothic thing!).

    I'm more into Celtic Folk and Celtic Folk/Rock fusion. I dig bands like Tempest and Clandestine.

    well then, i think you should try the "afro-celt sound system" (tho i`m sure you know them) and Bad Haggis, both play cletic fusion.
    noirin ni riain is an irish artists (i`m not 100% possitivly sure bout it...), she uses some hindi music as well! and it sounds wonderful!

    Many Years ago i went to see Wolftones, bad idea it was more like an IRA rally.

    A Irish Folk/Celtic band you may wish to check out is Cruichan(i think i have spelt this wrong)

    You may like them.

    hm they probably doesn't count as celtic, but their music is related anyway (at least i think so :)).
    anyway the band i'm rambing about is dubliners, anyone else who' familiar with their music?
    they rule :)
