Celtic or Irish Traditional?
I find myself saying Celtic a lot when describing the music I play. I'm not a strict Irish Traditional player. I play Scottish tunes, Irish tunes, and Breton tunes. I've even played the odd English tune. Heck, whistle is used in a lot of non-Celtic settings as well, such as Kwela music from Africa. But my interest is primarily Euro-Celtic, and so I call the music I pay "Celtic". There are people who turn their nose up at that, and more power to them. If you want to play strictly IR-Trad, feel free to ignore the other parts of my archive. While I have sections for religious songs, kids' tunes and the like, Celtic will remain the sites primary focus unless my interests change.
