I got Jose Gonzalez's album 'Veneer' for Christmas- and it's AMAZING- maybe some of you have heard the song 'Crosses'? It's acoustic folk stuff- just him and a guitar, really incredible lyrics and beautiful melodies. I'd recomend it to anyone!
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.

I picked up "The Best of Altan" by Altan yesterday. It's a very good album! I'm really liking that traditional Irish music these days! :)

I'd like to recommend 2 Japanese bands =) The first one is called UVERworld and the second one is called Sambomaster.
They're both really happy bands ^___^ If you like happy music you should check them out =)

This isn't a recommendation, its more like a query really. But i wondered if the mediaeval baebes were worth listening to. As i have been on their site etc, and visually they look great. But what about the music? Are they all eye candy, or is there some very deep and interesting music there?

I would say go and listen to them. I got introduced to them thanks to Phantas and though not every song is great, they do have a lot of good songs!
People place them in a bit of a Gothic scene but there are a lot of different genres in their songs.

Loreena McKennitt's latest offering "An Ancient Muse" is pretty cool. So is Sarah McLachlan's "Wintersong". I'm waiting hopefully for my birthday to see if Aoife's latest comes my way!

When did Loreena McKennit's newest come out? I have a few of her albums, and while she's not my absolute favorite, she's still grand.
I'd also like to recommend Runrig. They're a scottish band. Their genre's sort of folk rock. They do a kind of mix of trad Gaelic and rock. It makes for really good music. I'll warn you, though, some of their music has a distinct sixties tone to it. Most of it is quite good. I'd give you a link, but I'm not quite sure how to do that yet. :oops: :?: Maybe someone could give me a tip?

Runrig are great, although I don't have too many of their songs. My absolute favourite of theirs is "Pog aon oidhche earraich" love it!

@Chrissy: when you want to give a link, you type [ url ]link[/url ]. Leave the spaces I typed between the brackets and the url bit out and it should work. Otherwise you could just copy and paste the adress of the site and everyone interested in finding it will then have to copy it into their browser, as I'm sure they will. Hope this helps, I'm not much of an explaining person.

Stewart, CaperCaillie and Karen Matheson of course, Karan Casey, Altan, Runrig, Talitha MacKenzie, Kerine Polwart, Rod Patterson, Alasdair Fraisar *spelling*, Cathie Ryan, Connie Dover, the Tannahill Weavers, Rise, Relativity, Dick Gaughan. That's all I can think of at the moment

The new Loreena album An Ancient Muse was released just in late 2006, so it has not been available for "too long" anyway!
