Default Re: Your favorite Celtic rock/pop band?

I also found this "girl band" on a youtube channel for "The Snake Charmer". She plays Redpipes and the other two I'm not sure. My kids at school thought they were the bomb!! (that means good I was told...)
They're not quite a "band" in the traditional sense. Archy Jay ("The Snake Charmer") is a solo piper who's been making inroads on YouTube by playing covers of various songs/TV/movie themes. She collaborated with Jane Espie of Celtica and Chelsea Joy, formerly of The Angry Brians, on their "Shipping up to Boston" video over St. Patrick's Day weekend. I'd LOVE to see Celtica sometime!
