rec. c1990?
From 5 musicians based in France incl. Iranian? Chemirani and Irish? Diarmuid Johnson.
Incl. Harp, nyckelharpa, etc.
A mixture of Scandinavian, Welsh, Irish, etc tunes delivered in a gentle (more soft-spoken than polite) but often pleasing way.
‘midwinter reverie’ describes it best perhaps.

…that’s for the Nordic picnic, all cinnamon and dill, the Irish flute tunes add a stronger clove-flavoured punch to that.
