hobbitwoman Define Ceili (Ceilidh) Please? (30) Define Ceili (Ceilidh) Please? 06 Jul 03


Could someone give me a definition of what qualifies as ceili or ceilidh music (dance, etc.) and what makes it different from what is commonly thought of (at least by me) as Celtic or Irish music? I seem to recall someone commenting recently that there is a difference between Celtic and Irish music, and what might that be? Am I correct in assuming Celtic might be a broad term which would encompass Scottish (or Scots - once got my head taken off for using the wrong term!) music?

Thanks! :o)
