Zaqarbal- Clannad are one of my favourite bands!! They're hauntingly beautiful.

Irish music is one of my favourite music genres. This is a gorgeous Irish song that reminds me of the many happy times I've spent in Ireland.

It could be interesting to open a more general Celtic music thread.

That would be a good idea. BTW, I guess we'll need a "Breton connection" and a "Galician connection". So..... two members will be entrusted with it.

Shhhhhhh! Cacofonix mustn't play a single f***ing note.

Anyway, I didn't forget the Gauls: Brittany is in Armorica.

Default Duke Special

Hi guys, being from Ireland, Irish music is always something I listen to a lot and have good time for. For me, Duke Special is most definitely up there with the top Irish acts. This guy uses a great range of instrumentation, he has some absolutely beautiful melodies and writes music in a very original way. I recommend checking out his stuff, particularly the first album 'Songs From the Deep Forest'. Also, Villagers are a fantastic Irish group. I wasn't a massive fan of them, and ended up with a ticket to their Marley Park show in Dublin last summer. I didn't have the album prior to this, though knew a hand full of songs. The show was magnificent, Conor O'Brien, the main songwriter and vocalist/guitarist/etc has such a unique voice, one that is really beautiful. He hits a lovely range in a number of tracks. I highly recommend their album 'Becoming a Jackal', and the stand out tracks being 'Twenty Seven Strangers', 'The Pact', 'Becoming a Jackal', 'I Saw the Dead' and 'Pieces'. But listen to the whole album. Also The Coronas are another wonderful Irish band, they're really making a name for themselves. A big breakthrough is well deserved, I saw them in Marley Park as well last summer and it was utterly brilliant. Great band, great performers. Bell X-1 are an Irish band that I listen to very regularly. They have some great individual tracks, and have some superb lyrics. I recommend watching their performance of the song 'Velcro' on the Late Late Show (RTÉ) from 2011. It is wonderful.
Expect more posts haha, cheers guys!!

I mean, ask most people what irish music is and they'll either name someone like Daniel O'Donnell and some tweedledeedee fiddle stuff, or bands like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, most of whom are actually american. As a country, you really might as well say "Here's a thread for all British influenced music" for how well it defines a genre. We've already had Thin Lizzy, and some of the Irish trad stuff on guitar, and trad stuff on violin. Then you have bands like U2, The Chieftans/The Dubliners.

Then there's stuff like this little gem by Stoat, which is unfortunately isn't one of their best songs (the range on youtube is limited), but it gives you an idea of the kind of music they do.




What something a little less odd and a bit more amusing? The illustrious Dead Cat Bounce are one of the best bands in the comedic business, if you ask me:




I guess what I'm trying to say is, if you're looking for music that is influence by Irish Traditional Music, then that's great, it is a genre with a great culture and background, but please make the distinction. It's a little insulting to Irish musicians to assume that that's all the entire country has to offer
Sure, I can make it more defined. I wasn't trying to insult anyone. I browsed the forums and there wasn't anything really for Irish music in general, and I just wanted some suggestions of any sort of music that is:

- Made by Irish musicians whether in Ireland or not
- Influenced by Irish style, traditional songs etc
- Celtic
- Traditional
- Modern
- Fusion eg. Afro Celt Sound System
- Appreciation in general of this music

Sorry if I offended anyone. Hope this makes it more clear for anyone who has issues with this thread.

The Cranberries are obviously my favourite. I don't think I need to post videos, people should know their music. I adored them live, Delores still has the same powerful voice that she had in the 90's.
