Hey guys,
I want to recomend an artist called elain palmer to you guys- I bought her recent album 'waves' and it's really fantastcic- kind of acoustic folk style stuff with a real heart. I'm sure you'd all love it, well worth picking up.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

She was singing on Mike Oldfield's Art in Heaven show. She seems to have a pretty nice voice...

I would recommend:

Bridin Brennan
Ozark Henry
Jean Michel Jarre
Mike Oldfield
Stone Age (sometimes called "Stone Edge")
Claire Nicolson...

... and some french artists less known (especially outside of France :lol: ) like Femmouzes T, Daniel Balavoine, Frederick Rousseau and Pierre Esteve

I recommend some french artists:

- ZEBDA ( especially their live album"La Tawa")
These five guys create a really cool mixture of modern french pop with
arabic tunes and a little bit reaggae

- Louise Attaque
- Les Hurlements D'Leo both bands: "high speed french folk"

- France Gall with her wonderful album "Babacar" from 1987

This man is incredible ! He sings every Thursdays and Fridays in front the cathedral in Strasbourg. I looove his music ! It's from Middle-Age, but sometimes it looks like Irish dancing, or from Brittany.
Here is an extract !

No loudspeakers, can't listen to it :x !!! I love medieval music, would be great if I could hear it...

Has anyone already mentioned Mike McGoldrick on here? I skimmed through the thread and didn't find him yet. He's the flutist for Capercaillie but also has some other projects besides this. So far he's released three solo CDs and what he does is amazing. Some of it reminds me a little of Lunasa, so if you like them you've got a high chance of liking what he does as well.
