Our Irish and Celtic Music Picks Are Getting Some Attention
In the last few months, Kerry Dexter has told us about Three Irish & Celtic Albums You Should Experience and Three MORE Irish & Celtic Albums You Should Experience.
Clearly, she’s got an ear for great music because several of her picks have gotten some big attention recently.
Dual with Julie Fowlis and Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh’s is up for a Scots Trad Award. This is a notable honor, and you can help choose the winner. See all the nominees and vote at www.handsupfortrad.co.uk/tradmusicawards/nominations2009_info.htm.
Word also has it that Tommy Sands‘ Let the Circle Be Wide is on the shortlist for a Grammy nomination! You can listen to an interview with Tommy over at www.EngagingIreland.com.
While we’re at it… I should mention that the 2010 Songwriter’s Market: Where & How to Market Your Songs includes interviews with Cathie Ryan and Matt and Shannon Heaton… they were on Kerry’s recommendations as well!
Keep up the good work, Kerry!
