Subject: The Ultimate Celtic Trad Mix

My father and i are both big fans of Celtic trad. I want to amke him a mix tape of really good stuff. I thought it would be a great gift and also a nice chance to augment my own collection, which mostly consists of tapes and CDs from local performers and the odd Solas and requisite Chieftains (the Mark Knopfler rendition of Raglan Road is not to be missed). What songs, and by which artists, would you put on the ultimate mix tape?

I would recommend The Corries, Battlefield Band, Boys of the Lough, and most of all the Bothy Band.

Good of you to remember Old Blind Dogs!! Their newest CD-The World's Room-is really fantastic...content is still pretty traditional for the most part, but they do put a wee bit of an unusual "swing" to some of it...new members Jim Malcom (vocals& harmonica) and Rory Campbell (PIPES!!) add an interesting new dimension to OBDs sound!

My personal absolute favorite Celtic Stuff that no one has mentioned yet: SONGS: Queen of Argyll--Silly Wizard Donald Mcgillivry--Silly Wizard Erin Go Bragh--Dick Gaughan Both Sides The Tweed--Dick Gaughan (Actually the whole flippin' HANDFUL OF EARTH Cd by Dick Gaughan...) Iain Glen Cuich---Capercaille The Turning Away---Dougie MacLean Caledonia--Dougie MacLean The Collier's Recruit--Kate Rusby (from Sharpe soundtrack) John Barleycorn Must Die--Traffic (oops, that's the "classic rock" version- sorry, but most of my mixes contain a bit of militant eclecticsim anyway...) Today--Iona (from "Beyond These Shores" CD, if anyone has heard of this I'll be amazed)

TUNES: Dr Ross's Welcome to the 50th Argyllshire Gathering--Tannahill Weavers (might have #wrong, and I think the title is the main reason I like this tune, but excellent piping nonetheless!;-)) Islay Charms Set--Tannahill Weavers Onward Blindly Onward--Rare Air (Canadian pipers who really rock celtic trad, and do some weird space piper stuff as well!!)

Also Check out WOLFSTONE...some of their earlier stuff is really nice tunes-wise,pipes, whistles and great guitar work!

Of course, I have much music by the above mentioned artists too, but they're on other volumes. I love Alan Stivell! Also, check out the new Shaun Davey composition "The Pilgrim" with Rita Connelly. The last track will BLOW YOU AWAY!

There are pieces of Manx music and song available commercially, including by some of the people already mentioned. However, in addition, I can heartily recommend pieces by Caarjyn Cooidjagh, a Manx Gaelic folk choir (the name means 'Friends Together'), and The Mollag Band (a mollag is a tarred dogskin float - don't ask!), a sort of contemporary take on traditional music, with modern-day political pieces inter-meshed with tunes with a Manx provenance.

I've use the term 'Manx' - it does seem to lead to some misunderstandings! It's the adjective referring to the Isle of Man, between Ireland and England to the west and east, and between Wales and Scotland to the south and north.

I'd also point out that most people seem obsessed with Irish (particularly) with a smattering of Scottish and an acknowledgement towards Brittany (there's a whole lot more than Stivell there).

There is some great Welsh stuff, and some fine stuff coming out of Cornwall. If you want to be argumentative about it, you could also inclued Galician (not accepted by the Celtic League or the Pan-Celtic Festival, but very much a part of the Festival Interceltique in Lorient: chielfly through Carlos Nunez and groups like Milladoiro).

Shoh slaynt,

Bobby Bob
