GUEST,MacTattie BS: Does CELTIC music exist??? (49) RE: BS: Does CELTIC music exist??? 04 Feb 01


YES "Celtic" music exists. There are still boxes and boxes of the stuff lying unopened in record shops and warehouses. "Celtic" music first came to my notice with the likes of Loreena McKennit and their Disney style celtic world of fairies, elves, magical lands, strange religious conotations, cristals, miths, mists and the distinctly weerd. This fictitious mince was was quickly seized appon by many as a route to a quick buck and bands and recording companies pushed the " Corporate Celtic" tag. Never mind the style or type of music being played slap a mystical looking landscape on the cover, shove a whistle or an accordion into the final mix or better still tack on some hackneyed Irish song, and as if by magic an other addition to the "Celtic" music catalogue.

Oh yea, and lest we forget. Somewhere in in a basement in Harrogate, "CELTIC MUSIC", still exists in a distinctly weerd twilight world of his own.
