AnDro “An Dros/ The wind that shakes the Barley”
from Tribe (self) —This is a show devoted to Celtic music as the term is currently interpreted. This cut is a good example - a group of Breton dance tunes (An Dro is a dance) with an English ballad thrown in.

from The New Strung Harp (Alcazar Records 1985) —(originally on Temple records in the UK) This LP was part of the folk revival of Irish music in the 1970s and '80s and has some wonderful songs and instrumentals on it.

Bagad de Lann-Bihoué “Gavotte Aven”
from 40e Anniversaire (1952-1992) (ARfolk) —this is what traditional non-vocal Breton music sounds like. The band is called a bagad, and is made up bombardes (like the Balkan Zurna, a double reed pipe) and a type of bagpipe called a biniou, along with percussion. This dance pattern is called a ga


Ad Vielle Que Pourra “Chupad Melen/Hanterdro Tid' Poc'h”

from Premiére (Green Linnet 1984)


Bagad du Moulin Vert “Hanter Dro Et Dans Klam”
from Sonneurs Et Bagadoù De Bretagne (Versailles 1997) —another Hanter Dro; the following selection is part of a suite with this; the track markings are arbitrary.


Ad Vielle Que Pourra “An Dro Pitaouer/An Dro Evit Jakeza”
from Ad Vielle Que Pourra (Green Linnet 1989) —an unfortunate splice in the master tape for this CD makes it un-danceable in its CD form, but, otherwise, it is right on.


Bagad de Lann-Bihoué “Flac'h Ha Glav”
from 40e Anniversaire (1952-1992) (ARfolk) —a great minor-key tune


Trio Erik Marchand “Ar Gwin - Ton Berr”

Carlos Nuñez “Aires De Pontevedra”
from Mayo Longo (BMG 2000) —This is music from Galicia, in northwestern Spain - and here it all is, bagpipes, traditional percussion bands, roaring crowds, just like in Brittany


Carlos Nuñez “Vento D'as Cíes”
from Mayo Longo (BMG 2000) —well, I had to cut this one short - we will play it again next week, and get a lot more of this great northwestern Spanish music - so-called "Celtic Spain"
