The Wide Water

A Celtic Music Celebration

Alan Stivell's 1971 'Renaissance of the Celtic Harp' was for many the all-time definitive Celtic Album still as evocative and superbly rendered today as it was in 1971 when such mucis was rarely heard.

Starting from that album this playlist charts the 40 year flow of Celtic music through the musical consciousness of Eire, Scotland, England, France, America, Canada and Japan.

You can discover Tobias Soutcott's deep homage to Alan Stivell on Harp Portrait Celtic in 2004 but also numerous other harpists including Cynthia Wyatt, Soazig, the Celtic Traditional Orchestra, Janet Harbison, Derek Bell, Siobhan McDonnell, John Billing and Maire Ni Chatasaigh.

Via Danu, Deanta, An Dochas, Dun a Doras and Dab Ar Bras the river of haunting Celtic airs and ballads flows to the present day.

Some of the artists you will expect: the Chieftains of course, Steeleye Span, The Corrs, Planxty, Boys of the Lough, Capercaillie.

More surprising are Yo-Yo Ma and Julian Lloyd Weber.

I hope you will enjoy as I have some relatively unknown artists who give their own twist to traditional tunes:

The Rentones singing Star of The County Down is fresh and uncluttered, Miriam Stockley's version is fine as well. In total there are 4 versions Star of The County Down, 5 versions 'The Water is Wide', 7 versions of 'The Blacksmith'. 5 versions 'She Moved through the Fair'. 5 versions of of O'Carolan's'Planxty Irwin'. 5 versions of 'Lord Franklin'. 5 versions of 'Down by the Sally Gardens'

The Voice Squad singing the Parting Glass, Sue Mogan-Mattison singing the Famine Song, Wendy Beckerman singing the Water is Wide are spare and unadorned but all the better for that.
