Indy Lass May I ask a question . . . (41) RE: May I ask a question . . . 21 Aug 99

This is an interesting question. I think 'celtic' music (which I'll term as traditional music from countries with a celtic history-Spain, England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Brittany...) is where our american folk music originated--where else? I've listenend to american folk all my life and now I enjoy discovering new genres of music. I'm a history-geography-music-folklore buff and thanks to bands like The Chieftans and others popularising this traditional music of Spain, Ireland, Scotland, etc., I have a new collection of music to discover. I like the combination of instruments--particularly pipes and harp; the cadence of the music and lyrics; the history, lore and stories in the ballads...I also like the contemporary music coming out of this part of the world. And I'm gaining an appreciation of 'world music' in general.
