Traditional Irish Music Anyone?
« on: November 14, 2003, 10:32:22 pm »

Hey! I took classical violin lessons for 6 years and the past 3 years I've used that training in just playing fiddle music, especially Iriah and Scottish. Anyone else have a story like that or interested in that type of music?

I love Irish music. It's the only thing i enjoyed playing when i played the flute. I loved celtic flute music and i wanted to become a professional celtic flute player for a while too.
  But i droped my flute, i was trained as a classical musician for 8 years, if i had been playing only celtic flute for 8 years i probablly wouldn't of droped it

Irish music is generally quite beautiful. i don't really do anything related to or involving it myself, but I've got a friend who's been doing Irish dancing for years now. it's very complicated but it looks great when she does it.

'The Corrs' are great, and 'The Cranberries' are pretty good too.

I used to play the Bodhrán but as i have no natural rhythm I stuck with the tin whistle. My friend plays the harp and the flute, damn her talent.

There's this great Irish celtic/japanese flute player named Ron Korb, whom i am a big fan of. He's from Toronto and i have three of his cds. I highly doubt it, but if you ever see one of his cds in a shop, pick it up

Check out his website: http://www.ronkorb.com/

WHOO-HOO! I love U2. Heard of Helicon or Bonnie Rideout? they are definetly my favourite folk music performers! My sister even took hamered dulcimer (its a celtic instrument) lessons from a guy in Helicon so we know them personally.
