A while back i had the privelige to go see one of the most tallented irish bands that i know of. No, not the High Kings, but Gaelic storm. these guies...

http://www.gaelicstorm.com/welcome.html

They focus on irish sounding music, but they are anything but classic. their music blends a rock and roll sound into the classic irish songs, as well as creating an all new kind of music in itself. check them out, and tell me what you think!

I like Irish music, or Celtic/Folk/Rock style music. I myself had the pleasure of seeing CelticWoman. Very lovely show it was.

In fact no matter what music, as long as good to listen to, as long as someone appreciate it, the music will be very deserved.
People can't get complacent, only if you study hard can you continued progress, also is mini laser stage lighting.

I do enjoy Celtic music.

Pandy, I am jealous. I would love to go to see Celtic Woman in concert.

Tonight there is a Celtic Woman special on APT. I am recording it so I can watch it tomorrow.

One of my favorite singers is Loreena McKennitt who is influenced by Celtic music and Celtic history.

Celtic music is a form of music that comes from the regions of Ireland and Scotland. It consists of bands like The Chieftains, The Cranberries, The Pogues, and of course Celtic Woman,




Some of the instruments they use are explained here.

I think my favorite instrument is the bodhran, (pronounced Bah-ran. I also like the bagpipes, or less commonly called Irish Warpipes.

Thanks for your explain Pandy.

The Bodhran call we in Europe the tambourine .
About the Bagpipes, that is a difficult device, I suppose.
But, when someone controll the Bagpipes, than get you very beautifull sound, I have heared very often the Bagpipes and I enjoy of that sound.
My favorite instruments is the Drum and electrical Guitar also Keyboard( not the keyboard from the Computer.)

@HonestAbe



When a post is interesting, than get you a lot of replies.

There are a lot of people they have their own sound; the one loves te sound of Irish music and than is there also a group they do love the sound of Scottish.
I suppose that the most people loves the sound of Bagpipes.
Now is every instrument difficult for playing, but I think that Bagpipes is the most different instrument what there is.

Your post is interesting, so now do you know what the reason is, that you get a lot of replies on your topic.

I have heared now Celtic music and I must to say: I don't like that music, ladies.
Queen-Evie dear lady, thank you for the link to Celtic music.


:trumpet: That instrument is nice too with the right player.
When Marty with his Golden Trumpet played; than is the sound good.
Marty is a German.

My part-Irish aunt gave me a couple of Irish folk music CDs for Christmas a year or two ago. The Dubliners and somebody else. I thought it was alright. Not quite my cup of tea, but okay. All my friends though, are born and raised on hip hop. Or actually, what they listen to is radio hip pop.

So whenever I drove, I made sure to blast those CDs.

Drove them crazy. They don't let me drive anymore.

Da'yer kin, me contree's music drives al'the wee lads and lasses from me yard.

I listen to National Public Radio exclusively.
As far as I am concerned, there is nothing else worth listening to on the radio.

They play Celtic music on Sunday afternoons for a couple of hours and I really like it.
It is the forerunner of what we now know as bluegrass and I like that a lot too!

For our foreign friends, National Public Radio in the United States is not funded by the government.
In fact, funding has been dramatically reduced by the Federal Government.
The people readily and generously contribute every year to fund drives to keep NPR going across the nation.

One thing that is cool is that it is national.
You can pretty much tune your car radio to the far left FM stations on the dial and get it just about anywhere in the US.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Well, what I can saying about music is, everyone has his own taste on music.
The one like Celtic music, the other do like Russian music and than have we a group people they like German music etc.
It is in fact difficult for to say: You must listen to Celtic music, it is so beautifull, we have all our taste.
Also is it important in what for mood you are.
Example: You had a busy day and that day was not so pretty.
I think that when you listen to that music, that you do like that music.
Example again: I do like Bolero from Maurice Ravell, I can for hours and hours listen to that music, but just like every people have I also days that I say, **** now I don't like this at this moment.
So what can we saying all: We can now saying, the mood and taste from people is very important.
