New or more obscure ITM bands/artists?
I host a brief weekly Celtic music program at a local campus radio station here in southern British Columbia, Canada. I’m constantly trying to find ITM artists whose music I might like, and thought I’d see if anyone has any suggestions for me. I play the more well known names (e.g. Patrick Street, The Bothy Band, Planxty, Danu, Lunasa, Dervish, early The Chieftains, etc., etc.) on a regular-ish basis, but try to liberally include less well-known groups as well.
With very limited exceptions I do NOT like:
* Celtic rock
* Any sort of Celtic fusion
* Many folk songs; I usually stick to instrumental only.
Other than that I try to include a wide range of sounds and styles within the Celtic traditional/folk music genre, including ITM, Scottish trad, and derivatives such as Canadian fiddle music. So, suggestions anyone?
Thanks in advance!
