Notable Celtic Releases List

Sure I have been away from the computer most of the time but not on my music player;) These are the list of artists I would suggest you listen to if you are looking for authentic Celtic stuff:

1. Connie Dover-The Border of Heaven conniedover2

The “voice so pure, so captivating, that it tells you: this is how to sing a song” artist released this wonderful album in 2001. My choice picks are: I Am Going to the West, Brother Green , My Dearest Dear and The Water is Wide. Visit her official homepage.

2. Cecile Corbel-Song Book vol. 2cecile-corbel-song-book2-nov2008

If you haven’t picked up Cecile Corbel’s latest recording yet, then I recommend you give her a listen. This Breton artist has already established herself as one of the formidable forces in the Celtic arena. Visit the official website.

3. Jenny Mulvey-Suirimulveycd01

Beautiful singing, eclectic approach to traditional material-these are what you can expect from this Irish singer. You can listen here.

4. Dom Duff-E Unanpochette_Dom_Duff

This 2008 release by this Breton recording artist is a good introduction to his earlier releases. If you like your Celtic music invading the festive barracks of the Gypsy Kings and moving a few degrees into the realm of Sting then Dom Duff is for you. More sound samples here.

5. Sue Aston-Sacred Landscapessueaston

This pro violinist from Cornwall has all the chops to charm her way into the hearts of her listeners. If you like your music with a mellow waltz of Secret Garden and the mysticism of Cornwall then ms Aston will light your way. Samples can be heard here.

More to come…..

  1. Connie Dover has a similar sound (and look!) to Loreena McKennitt from the pieces I’ve heard. Nice to have another beautiful voice on the Celtic music scene.

    Suiri’s music I have come to love on MySpace.

    The others I will definitely have to explore!
