I love this album because it has everything…Mostly focused on Celtic rock style and composed of bands compiled by Celtic rockster himself Larry Kirwan of Black 47. Bands like Hothouse Flowers,Peatbog Faeries, The Waterboys and much more. The thing about the label “Celtic Rock’ is that there are a LOT of those out there and it is hard to pick out the best from the bunch. It is amazing Mr Kirwan has done this task for us all, so we know only the best in genre. It is also a way to represent the bands in the field.
My journey to Celtic music was through a different vehicle. Think of World and New Age inspired Celtic music. Yeah those were my introduction. Rock music came later in life and so were the other forms of music-in this case Celtic rock. There is not much to write about these bands except what you already know. And also your personal impression of each song. When you get your hands on a copy of Celtic Invasion. First, this is a compilation.It is hard to single out which is better. Every band excels through its own style. And this is a compilation of the creme de la creme of Celtic rock. It’s like riding the kaleidoscope of sounds where everything sparks up and it is hard single out one color from the other.
Larry Kirwan’s Celtic Invasion#1 is something you should bring with you when you want to liven up a party. If you are having your own party at home then better crank this up. This is the best. You know why? Because it isn’t just rock music. It is Celtic rock music. And the C of Celtic also stands for COOL! I know rock aficionados who like to comment on guitar rifts, bass lines, drums or even the vocals. Hey Celtic rock’s got fiddle and pipes and a whole lot more! Something you can’t find in ordinary music. So….Mr Kirwan certainly compiles something awesome with Celtic Invasion#1. May we get a follow-up to this!
The album comes with the liner notes detailing introduction to every track.

Huzzah!

I had a bizarre experience reading a post by Qristina Bachand. It was  about a certain musician who cyber bullied her. The comment was directed to Qristina’s looks onstage.  I am so glad that Qristina has more class and obviously more brains to defend herself from these accusations. It is sad when oppression against women is directed not by men but by women themselves! It is ridiculous.  March is the month to show appreciation to the women in history. They were and are obviously beautiful inside and out. So what if you are blessed with both looks and talent? There is nothing wrong with that. If you have it, flaunt it. If you don’t then keep it. That simple. Ok enough of Qristina’s unquestionable looks onstage (which I say is fantastic!) and on with the music. This is together with brother Quinn:

Now, let’s go to Spain. Here’s an amazing video introduction to the Celtic inspired music from that region. The recommendation came with Spanish text so I don’t really understand it but the music is fantastic!

Here’s what it says:
