A Little Celtic Music For You…

Welcome to Rudan Thursdays where we talk about…things! Anything from books and movies, to blog posts and authors, to food and drink.

Today, I’d like to share a little music with you all. Like many people, I enjoy a good tune. While Country music is my favorite, I’m also a fan of hard rock, metal, alternative, and classic rock. It may shock you to learn, though I’ve always been somewhat obsessed with the Celtic culture and traditions, I’d never listened to Celtic music. I know, I know. Ok…stop. I know!

Anyway, I discovered this Celtic band a little over a year ago, and immediately fell fast and hard. They are some of the most talented musicians I’ve had the pleasure to experience. Their name is Albannach, which means “Scotsman,” or “Scottish.” They have a fire and genuine passion that you don’t see too often in bands anymore ~ not only for their music but also for their country.

I give you Jamesie, Donnie, Jacquie, Aya, and Colin ~ Albannach:

So talk to me. What did you think? Do you like Celtic music? Every time I listen to Celtic music, and Albannach especially, I become inspired and exhilarated. What music or band does this for you?

  1. LOVE Celtic music, but I haven’t heard these guys, thanks! But, yeah, they get my blood going. Both the modern Celtic bands like The Pogues, and the traditional ones.

    Another thing I love: Bagpipes. They melt me….

  2. Is it bad that the initial drums reminded me of “Beautiful People,” especially the Marilyn Mason version? I love Celtic music (Aine Minogue, Loreena Mckennitt, Secret Garden) but this is much more native (and by that I mean authentic) than anything I’ve ever heard.
