    check out Colm O'Donnell, "Farewell to Evening Dances", some of the most beautiful songs you will ever hear, one in particular made me totally lose control, "The Hill of Knocknashee"

    it's really chill music

    have been meaning to check this since you posted it. listened to a few of his songs on youtube there and ye he's good. i love traditional irish and scottish music. i listen to quite a lot of it from irish rebel music through old ballads to some more contempory stuff. at the moment these are two that i'm listening to a lot

    ignore the incredibly unfunny guy introducing it.

    the best song ever played on the bagpipes

    and lastly quite possibly my favourite song, if the lyrics in this song don't move you then in my opinion you have ice running through your veins not blood

    have you heard Sgt. MacKenzie? one of your boys wrote it to commemorate his grandfather, who died in WWI protecting one of his men in the trenches

    sadly he passed away recently, that is one stirring song, it's heavy on Scottish bagpipes, and they played it in the movie "We Were Soldiers" with Mel Gibson

    My favorite song of all-time is Whiskey in the Jar by Tin Lizzy.

    i think i'd only heard it in that film, incidentally a great film, before. its very haunting. while i love the pipes anyway its songs like this that i think bring the best out in them. just sounds so mournful on the bagpipes, its like the funeral scene at the start of braveheart when the villagers are paying tribute to wallaces dad "playing outlawed tunes on an outlawed instrument"
    do you ever listen to music in gaelic, scots or irish?
