Not sure if any here have heard of an Italian band called The Sidh. They are a new Genre of Irish Music, I’d be tempted to call it Electro/Folk or even Dance music. They don’t seem to have broken into the UK market yet and that is a crying shame as they are very, very good.
Now, before the ‘Trad’ fanatics start screaming, let me say one thing - they are NOT trad, they play many so called Trad tunes but in a new way. Iain Marr, the whistle player/piper is very good at what he does, as are the rest of the band.
They play music that appeals to younger musicians/fans (heaven knows why I’m listening to it then).
You might want to check out their latest single release - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wieACidHuNM&list=FLt0uHCQ8sZMwnJGsXwzdSKw&index=1.
I just thought I’d let you know about this great band from Italy, sorry if it doesn’t appeal to you. But take time to listen and I’m sure you’ll love them.
