Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.
Dubliners, especially Barneys banjo playing
In my book, it's The Chieftains all the way! I also like Great Big Sea, the Irish Rovers/Will Millar, and lots more, but The Chieftains reign supreme.
My favorite Irish group is the Wolfe Tones
Personally I love the chieftains, but the clancy brothers, the dubliners and the pogues (though being from newfoundland) r pretty awsome too
Planxty,The Bothy Band,The Woods Band,Sweeneys Men and The Wolfe Tones.
Not bad! Spencer the Rover is really lovely by him! :-)
Dervish is number one for me. I have heard them twice here in California, and both concerts were superb. Close contenders are Altan and Solas. In addition, I listen to a lot of Loreena McKennitt, Lunasa, and the Corrs when they do the more traditional material - especially the live acoustic versions.
Brigids Cross (Ohio) Flatfoot 56(Chicago),Enya and Celtic Women !
