Shit, that (above) misfired. I'll try again.

Fluffy Arabian Cat Disease proves a persistent earworm after hearing it at a gig (with concertina player Cormac Begley) yesterday.

I am always moved by her singing either Eithne Ni Uallachain - Babóg na Bealtaine or The Turn of the Road will have to do here. Darkness into light!

Could mention more but will look up the links later.

Some nice comments and a nice performance from Will.
That's the thing about folk music it does create a bond between performer and audience, and also between performers, as can be seen in many of these videos. This music touches and inspires our emotional side more than any other with the exception perhaps of classical music.

Will,

I came across your video of Midnight on the Water when I was learning to play it.

I must confess that I occasionally ruin your performance by accompanying you on my fiddle (that's something you will never have to suffer) but most times I just sit and listen.

It is lovely; to my ears, nigh-on perfect.

And that smile at the end?

Thank you!

Harry

Tony is the God of Irish traditional music in my view Stu.
There is a lovely documentary on the tube which explores his views on the music......a bulwark against creeping fusion and dilution.
Gettin' back to American music, one of my favourite writers and performers is Iris Dement, this song is a heartbreaker and a stern warning to the elites social and political. easy's gettin harder every day.

I don't believe some of the sound effects are real :-) But this version of Ievan Polkka by The Lumberjack Band is now a favourite. I came across it recently. For those who want to know how I came across it, I was looking for the version made famous by Loituma.

Enjoy.

And look at the equally great Paddy Keenan looking like he was sculpted from granite just for this song.

There are actually a good selection of Youtube performances and whole series of them like the Tiny Desk Concerts; Songs From The Shed Sessions and Narrowboat Sessions. Plus lots of individual performances from especially younger performers. Here are two that always brighten up my day

I always think this live performance is better than Paulo's official video

And if you're feeling down the sheer exuberance of this is sure to lift the mood

There are very few genuine You Tube performances, in the sense that the musicians specifically arranged for themselves to be filmed for this purpose.
So, mostly, we're discussing performances from live gigs, CD TRACKS and so on.

I'd much rather discuss my favourite gig highlights and favourite COS.
