hey this is an odd request I know but does anyone know of any particularly good celtic/norwegian folk bands?
...but if by "Celtic" you mean "Gaelic-speaking", there's a Scottish / Nova Scotian band called Daimh (pronounced like "dive", I think) who've played Green Man before. Very good live, but I've not heard their records.
older stuff like Planxty, Moving Hears, Sweeneys Men, Dervish.
As for newer stuff, try the likes of The Malkies, Sharon Shannon, Alistair Hulett.
Theres a whole load of great Celtic folk-rock too like Roaring Jack, Siobhan, Wages of Sin etc etc.
none of the above do. But good anyway.
Its weird I cant even think of one!
These guys aren't 'purely' folk, but they've got folk/alt-country vibes...Real Ones (myspace.com/realonesmusic)
