There are artists out there like Fiach Moriarty and Michele Ann Kelly who make nice pop rock tunes but still incorporate that Irish flavor in terms of guest musicians. Traditional instruments have found their way into modern radio format more and more and I think this is further encouraged by movies. The recent movie by Colin Farell called Undine featured Sharon Shannon as a funeral musician.

I think this is great because it encourages more and more musicians playing traditional instruments to continue and to persevere. And apart from 'pop' music, there is the traditional radio stations . I have been listening to LiveIreland especially their more traditional station. You learn a lot from these playlists.

Right now I am listening to Brigid Boden. She is one of the Brennans, she is urban pop, yet there is so much of Irishness in her that can never be denied. I love the old and the new of Irish music.

Hey Baxter, I'm an Uilleann piper (wannabe anyway) in the Philippines.  I'm new to TradConnect, but it would be great to meet up to listen to some tunes and have some Guinness.  So drop me a line.
