What is it that makes this music so appealing? What are your favorite groups and songs? Is everyone REALLY Irish on St. Paddy's day? lol

Well, I enjoy the music but haven't really gotten into it, so if you have some recommendations, I'll at it to my "I'll procrastinate this forever but eventually I'll buy it" list....

go to playlist.com and search Celtic music...should give you a nice list of music. Also...a search of youtube? I listen to Clannad, Enya, Celtic Women, Celtic Thunder. Oh...go listen to the song on my Yuwie profile...it's Afro/Celtic something or nother..with Sinnead O'Conner....I stumbled on it and loved it. Celtic music is a broad range of styles...and instruments. YOu will find something that appeals to you. Also..isn't there a guy on Yuwie...Celturian? He's magnificent on the guitar! Happy Music hunting. Find your JOY ;)

OK, I'll do that. And nope, haven't met Celturian or even seen him around that I recall...

I grew up with parents who let the Celtic music flow. Two of my grandmothers immigrated here one form Ireland the other (in utero) from Scotland. We have a love of the music and dance and for years now my girls have taken Irish Step. I too love Celtic Thunder but must say that their music like most Celtic music is far better in person then on a recording. Not to mention you just don't get that Irish sense of humor on a recording like you do in person. As for the comments about the Native Americans mixing with the Irish/Scots you may want to look up a spot in Connecticut where there is a standing stone circle that dates back way further then Europeans on the continent. I do not remember the name but will find it and post it later.

You can go to www.neara.org to find out more info and visitation information about Vermont's standing stones also there are a couple books, Vermont's Stone Chambers by Giovanna Neudorfer, and American B.C. by Barry Fell. I believe the town they are near is Called South Woodstock but please do not quote me on that one. I hope you find this as interesting as I do.
