Dave Page - Uillean Piper

I would like to introduce you to Mr. Dave Page, the grand-father of Gregory Page (I posted a video by Mr. Gregory Page a few days ago). Dave Page was an Uillan Piper from Ireland and I think although he died in 1987 he really deserves to be remembered.

His grand-son Gregory Page created a web site about him where you can find info about his life and free downloads as well. …

Beating the bushes for a bodhran

    I come from a long line of musicians and I am related to a bunch more. My parents both sang. My late mother played organ and piano and, when young, could also play the accordion, while my father (who is now 91) once played various kinds of horns. My grandmother played piano and both grandfathers played fiddle. Various uncles and great-uncles played fiddle, guitar and banjo, while assorted cousins (and I have a lot of cousins!) sang professionally and played various instruments. But I…

Margeson on the music, December, 2010

In what has become a yearly tradition, we here at LI give out around this time as to what are the top albums for the Christmas gift giver.
The ones with real trad taste. The gift giver who wants to give something fab---something trad. Does it shock you to find out we have recommendations? Now, it is up to you to find them. Easy. There are a couple that will require contacting the unequalled European distributor, Copperplate and Alan O’Leary directly. Also, think…

The Legendary Altan Celebrates 25 Years of Music











Unlike rock and pop bands, Celtic musicians stick around for a long time. The music is timeless and its not about attitude or fame. It’s about the love of music and the dedication to a tradition that spans thousands and thousands of years. Although the label “celtic music” only started around more than 30 years ago, it’s connection to the ancient spirit of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Isle of Man, Gallicia… Continue

new's fron sliotar

from JP:

Last night in the Leeson lounge we got our good friend Tomek "Qra" Jastrzebski to join Sliotar on the bass. He was thrown in to the deep end with less than 24 hours warning, it was sink or swim... And swim he did:-) So for the next two Mondays in the Leeson lounge, Sliotar will be performing as a four piece. Come along and let us know what you think.

Now I would like to use this opportunity to let every one know that our new website is up and running!… Continue

Celtic Music: Lenses on Squidoo - Lens of the Day!

When I got up this morning (which is the middle of the afternoon for you folks on the other side of the pond) I was just expecting to get in a new blog post about a Squidoo lens I'd published yesterday. But when I checked my email, I noticed I had a lot of comments posted somewhere on my Squidoo lenses.

Harvest Home concert tracks

Hey friends:
I asked my fellow band members if I could post the whole concert on the site and they said OK. I am fortunate and happy to know and play with these folks. This concert was pretty much a one-time thing, but we worked hard and had fun. Anyway, I'd be happy for your comments and critiques. So, eistigi 's bainigi sult as! PS -- I know I started Bean Phaidin too high and too fast -- I was nervous ;}

Maggie's Music

For the past couple of weeks I've been pretty busy developing a series of 16 Squidoo lenses for Maggie's Music, an independent label started over 20 years ago by hammered dulcimer player Maggie Sansone. The label specializes in what has been termed "chamber folk." While there are many solo recordings on the label, the artists often get together on each others' recordings as well. The music draws on Celtic traditions of Ireland, Scotland and other areas, with a good dash of American influence… Continue

Some Recent Celtic Music Squidoo Lenses

I've been pretty busy over at Squidoo.com in the past few months. I now have 35 lenses (web pages) on Celtic music, plus 15 Celtic music video showcases. The video showcase number has fallen recently as I've decided to incorporate some of the videos into the lenses themselves.



I made a lens for Celtic Christmas music by individual artists or groups and another one for Celtic Christmas music compilations. Working on the first one led me to create a lens for Bonnie Rideout, a… Continue
