Scot Rocka Celtica

Dave (OnliestSmeg) -  Manchester AO


The bands/music I've posted so far have been pretty serious stuff in the main! The Hu possible being the exception.


I've been exploring fields further away, but what do I find for UK based traditional instruments/music being updated with current genre slants?

There's a fair bit of classical infused music,

But of course this also brought Bagpipes into play - leading me to Celtic Rock:


"Celtic rock is a genre of folk rock, as well as a form of Celtic fusion which incorporates Celtic music, instrumentation and themes into a rock music context. It has been extremely prolific since the early 1970s and can be seen as a key foundation of the development of highly successful mainstream Celtic bands and popular musical performers, as well as creating important derivatives through further fusions. It has played a major role in the maintenance and definition of regional and national identities and in fostering a pan-Celtic culture. It has also helped to communicate those cultures to external audiences."


Still sounding serious you may conclude!


UNTIL you start listening - then most of it isn't .... it all has a light-hearted feel (must be a consequence of imbibing all those drams :-) )

...... why not film the video in Bonny Scottyland!
