I don’t understand people who don’t like Celtic music. Like, honestly, what’s not to love? I do understand people who can’t stand New Age music, because I’m one of them. And it’s New Age music that gives regular traditional Celtic music a bad name, because it steals, whitewashes and castrates so much from it. You have to give Clannad and Moya Brennan laurels for being on the forefront of the Celtic music revival in the sixties and seventies. But then you also have to give them a little kick in the butt for being at the forefront of New Age in the eighties. On the other hand, a lot of things sucked in the 80′s – not even David Bowie was immune to sucking in the 80′s. So you can’t blame Moya Brennan for having a period of 80′s and 90′s New Agey suckness. She’s gone back to more traditional roots in recent years, and as you can plainly hear, her voice has lost none of its angelic lustre.
