let's talk about Irish music

U2 of course
Damien Rice
Van Morrison
The Pogues/Shane MacGowan
Ash
The Frames
Stiff Little Fingers
The Undertones
Bell X1
Gemma Hayes
Mundy
Adrian Crowley
Flogging Molly (OK they're technically from California but Dave King is from Ireland)

Not huge fans of all, and for some I only know one or two songs, but I'm really bored so I thought I'd start a new thread.

Oh and I forgot Westlife.

I love Van Morrison and I'd also like to add The Corrs. I also really like traditional Irish music, such as Brian McNamara, the McNamara family, and Brendan Lynch.

I listen to Sinead O'Connor,Clannad, Christy Moore and Luka Bloom..a lot. I once saw a concert on TV from the Point Theatre in Dublin, a bit of a who's who of Irish music at the time( U2 weren't there). Just brilliant it was, Mary Black, Issac Issacson, Altan, a woman who ripped on accordian...so many I can't recall.
Brian Kennedy's performance at that show is etched in my mind. So much heart and enjoyment in what he was doing
My son has music by a heavy Irish band called One Minute's Silence.My mum has the hots for Val Doonican and has a lot of tenors on vinyl and CD. I have a Val vinyl called "some of my best friends are songs" I LOVE that title.
I use to be part of the celtic folk club around here and learned Irish and Scottish dances...gosh it was fun..energetic but fun. There is a group of very dedicated traditional musicians here, one of them makes the most beautiful harps.( he'll probably dress up to go the ROTK premiere too) Their band is called called Gaelforce Erin and they have regular ceildhs( I've forgotten how to spell it, I haven't been along for ages) So I love the traditional stuff too.

And then there's pennyblack a rock band that play around here. Their publicity always mentions the fact they are Irish..the Ponsonby Bros.
Today's banner at Yahoo mail says "you don't have to have the luck of the Irish to live like a king...win an Irish castle"
Do they have to?

and that other little 4 piece band...?? quite nice boys, good looking..????

that's it!!!

U2

oh yes...this will probaly put me in the musical sin bin for even longer.
I loved that song Ronan Keating sang for the movie "Notting Hill" and he reduced me to big salt tears one morning, the first time I saw/heard one of the film clips to a new song of his.( can't recall the title)

sure if I had the wings of a swallow...........
