Have you never heard the song 'Molly Malone'? Now that is a folk song if ever there was one. I love Celtic/Irish folk music. My father played guitar and banjo and often sang Irish folk songs to us. When I started playing guitar the first songs I learned were Celtic folk songs. I played guitar, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, and autoharp in a folk group for several years. I really miss those times. Our audiences really got lively every time we played a Celtic song -- Irish Rover, Molly Malone, The Rose of Allendale, Danny Boy, oh, so many -- makes me wish I still had my string instruments.
Has anyone here performed at Renaissance Faires? That can be so fun!
I enjoy the Celtic folk-rock music of Pentangle, Steeleye Span, and Fairport Convention.
