Reccomend CD’s

Reccomend CD’s

Looking for CDs with players of traditional music that is as traditional/old fashioned/vintage as possible. I prefer the older sound and instrumentation.Not just irish, but scots and welsh ect too.

Great forum here!

Forgot to mention: not just players but singers also

Re: Reccomend CD’s

I dont know how old you need things to be. But here you have two (not new) absolute favorites of mine:

The Missing Reel - Seamus McGuire & John Lee (1990)

SEAN KEANE: GUSTY’S FROLICKS (1975)

Re: Reccomend CD’s

"The WHeels Of The World" recordings.
The 4-box set "Farewell To Ireland".
You can find comments about these recordings if you search for these in the recordings section here.
There are also a lot of very old recordings available online on various websites.

Good luck. One of my all time favourites is a recording of CB fiddler Angus Chisholm. And on a similar vein there’s a fair bit of stuff by Buddy McMaster, Winston Fitzgerald around. Bobby MacLeod is well worth a listen, quite a few recordings. And that’s me just getting started …

All best,

Re: Reccomend CD’s

There’s a good discography in the back of Matt Cranitch’s fiddle tutor if you can get access to a copy. Lots of classic recordings listed, but it won’t include more recent recordings.

Re: Reccomend CD’s

Narrowing it down: CDs of players/singers active or released before 1960. Already have these CDs listed in this "recordings by year index" http://www.irishtune.info/r-year.htm but looking for more of the same vintage.

Is there an index of trad musicians by year?

Thank you,
