Na Casadigh

Post by thehackercat » Fri Aug 26, 2011 22:00

I rarely post in this section, but I thought I'd share with you an Irish group I discovered called Na Casadigh (The Cassidys).

Their music is a pretty cool mix of traditional Celtic and modern instrumentation. Check it out:

And, probably my favorite, Óró Bog Liom Ã￾: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcD6bU4T ... re=related

Lá maith, everybody! :celtic

Na Casaidigh - an idle Irishman's comment.

I think this is my first PCKF post ever (i'm more of a keenmodding.org guy) but i logged in to pass comment, I used to listen to these on a cassette a lot... I used to sing 'an bhfaca tú mo Shéamuisín ' and the other two a lot in school, great simple little tunes! I was (even in my single-digit years) a little cynical of their modern instrumentation, but they're not bad really!

have you ever listened to the Dubliners? or Planxty? strongly recommended!

more rough and ready than n Casaidigh, but a more authentic sound too!!!

on a slight self-promotional tangent (i hope this isnt forbidden), have you ever played 'Bunny Basher 2'?

I absolutely love traditional Irish music. I am half-Irish, and my wife is half-Irish, half-Scottish. We have some CD's of the Dubliners, as well as some lesser known artists... and I downloaded an enormous torrent of Celtic music. :D

Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed the tracks.
