Minipost: St. Paddy’s Day

March 17, 2011

An Irish diddy, followed by a Breton droney number for good Celtic measure, to wish y’all a Happy St Patrick’s Day.

Both tracks are from the phenomenal treasure trove that is the Secret Museum of Mankind 5-volume series, edited by Pat Conte. This is to my ears the best compilation of world/folk/ethnic music out there.

    Liked the 2nd one from Brittany best, maybe because of the quality of the recording, but also because it was truely unique sounding. I remember at the place in Montmorency listening to Herve’s records of Brittany music. I guess I acquired the taste.
