The Cat that Kittled in Jamie's Wig

When I can get my hands on it, I tend to like traditional Celtic music. However, despite The Thistle and Shamrock being in its 25th year, it can still be hard to locate CDs for some of the featured artists.

A track from The Thorn Tree called "The Cat that Kittled in Jamie's Wig" was featured on this past week's Thistlepod, and I could tell from just that snippet that I wanted to hear more of Gráinne Hambly's work, but I can't find any samples from the album to determine if it's just that one song that I like, or whether the whole album is worth purchasing from overseas.

Are any of you familiar with her previous work? If so, would you recommend it? Many thanks!

Hey, many thanks for that! While we're on the subject, who's your favorite artist in this genre?

Sinead O'Connor
The Pogues
Luka Bloom
Christy Moore
The Chieftains
Wolfstone
Enya

Not all of them are strictly traditional but they all do traditional Irish and Scottish music wonderfully. I know I am forgetting someone(s) but it is late and my brain is empty. I'm more for the hardcore traditional played in the pub sorta music. Irish tenors and pretty music is nice but I feel the soul of a culture is in their traditional music.

I was already missing Ireland earlier this week... *sighs*
