Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Ethereal-voiced alternative pop versions of traditional material
Most recent release, Innocence Is Not a Crime (2001)
Ashley MacIsaac is the only person whose sensibility is even close to this. (Neile)
Own and cowritten songs and arrangements of traditional material
It's great fun (in small doses). Reminds me of Ashley MacIsaac but instead of alternaCeltic it's bopCeltic/triphopCeltic. NOT for the purist traditional music lovers but nonetheless delightful. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Brigid Boden is the only one we've heard
1996—A&M Records (U.S.)—31454-0439-2
Recommended if the idea of TripHopCeltic music sounds good to you
This does a pretty intriguing meld of celtic music with trip-hop. I find it a little tiresome over the course of an album, but great in the cd shuffle or on sampler tapes. (neal)
