Subject: RE: Help: Trads to recommend for singer?
You should look up recordings of Kenneth McKellar, the Scottish tenor. Practically the only classical-style song interpreter I know of that has a genuine feel for Celtic music--and I think he did a lot to preserve the repertoire during mid-century when "Brigadoon" was the unfortunate model. And they sound great with a lively piano accompaniment.
