Really loving Nancy Kerr and James Fagan's music lately. I'm hoping to find new music that is a similar style. I especially love the material from Starry Gazy Pie and Strands of Gold. The way James Fagan plays guitar/bouzouki is really fun to listen to. His strumming style and skill at creating interesting rhythms is amazing. I would love some recommendations on similar artists

I'm listening to Starry Hazy Pie and that is some monster zouk playing, in fact, I find all the instrumental and vocal work impressive. Thanks for the heads up. I can't really think of any new artists that parallel these two but you might like Solas, Malinky and Lothlorien. Also there is a fairly recent recording by Corey Purcell called Flying Solo you might be interested in with more good zouk (and other instruments played by Purcell) and singing.

Guest Evan, you've just made my day. I googled Nancy Kerr and James Fagan, and her song "Queen of Waters" came up. What a gem!

Sorry I can't help you with any new music, but thank you for pointing me to some.

Well a good place to start would be Nancy Kerr's albums with Eliza Carthy, and also with her mum, Sandra Kerr.

James Fagan's duo The James Brothers are a lot of fun, distinctly more rouguish and piratical than his duo with his missus

Hmmmm... what else...

Simply because they are a male/female partnership, reasonably 'new' and, more importantly, because they are VERY GOOD I would recommend Laura Smyth and Ted Kemp:

Well I don't speak with any authority but when you mention Nancy Kerr the voices which come to mind are of
