That American Fake "Auld Eireland" music gets on my tits though, sorry
You should be.sorry
As I said, if you read it all, I totally agree with the sentiment and thought it was a great advert.

mudhooks said:Celtic music has been alive and well in Maritime Canada from its settling... circa 1600s. Early French inhabitants, as well as the Irish, Scottish and English fishermen and settlers brought their music with them.... so it is as "traditional" as the Celtic music of Ireland, today.
Totally agree with with mudhooks, some of the French trekked to the southern states of the USA and integrated their music with native forms to produce cajun in its various genres.
The Cape Breton area of Canada is rich in Celtic roots music and has produced many fine bands and solo artists. The gaelic language is alive and well over there and has not been bastardised over the years.
The Celtic music of this area should not be confused with the Paddys Day Parade stuff of other areas.
