Thread Name: Ed Sheeran and Irish Folk Songs
Subject: Review: Ed Sheeran and Irish Folk Songs
Has anyone heard of a singer known as Ed Sheeran? I saw an article headline of this man singing Irish folk songs, and his name sounded familiar. I take it he sings mainstream music as well. I'm curious about his music after coming across this article headline. I'm in Nova Scotia, and I play traditional and modern styles of Celtic music, mainly on the Scottish side influenced by artists like John Allan Cameron and Runrig. Could Ed Sheeran be a good way to introduce traditional Celtic folk music to a new demographic? What are your thoughts and does anyone have more knowledge of him?
