I have been a part of this list for about two weeks and if there is one
thing I've learned is that there is a lot of great music out there that I
know nothing about. I need some suggestions for a "Irish Trad CD Starter
Kit". What should I buy? I realise that there is a wide range of music
within the realm of Irish Trad so I'd like to tell you what I like.
I love fiddles! I love jigs and reels (although I admit that I don't know
the difference between the two!), and I love acoustic instruments.
I don't like heavy production on cds. I don't like cds that say
"traditional music" yet sounds like adult contemporary. I guess you could
say that I like the rougher stuff.
I was raised on college alternative music, but lately have been into
traditional country, folk, bluegrass, and blues. My intro to traditional
music from across the Atlantic was with the Pogues and the Chieftains.
Where do I go from here?
