Hey Nona....I saw "Pride and Glory" enjoyable....a bit predictable....but Norton, Farrell, Voight, and others were great....I really liked the soundtrack; it made the movie....Waterline by Sage Francis really interesting...reminded me of Luka Bloom.....I like edgy Irish Rock Bands.....a few come to mind...The Waterboys, Black 47, The Walls(mellow) Pugwash etc....check out utube and amazon...they are always a big help in checking out bands and video songs....plus Leyland, Volgadon and others are great resources....Have fun.....BTW He is not Irish....But.... check out Richard Thompson very edgy singer and guitar player..... he is terrific.....he made a classic album with his wife (at that time) Linda Thompson..."Shoot Out the Lights"

He's not exactly in my CD player cause I'm tuning into YouTube and MySpace at work, but Tinsley Ellis is chasing away the blues right now! Actually he's appearing in Greenville SC tonight at a bar/listening room for a benefit concert across the street from work. I'm so excited and ready to rock at this show tonight. Blues rock is a great love of mine in addition to Celt rock!

well my Gaelic Storm cds arrived yesterday so I'm listening to them, I love the song titled 'The Night I punched Russel Crowe'..lol it's a comical song! I bought Craic Wisely as well I loved their song titled 'Pride(an Irish Family)'. I've got plunty of 'pub music' as my husband says.

I did listen to some of Flogging Molly, I really liked a few of their songs, like Paddys Lament, If I Ever Leave This World Alive, Factory girls, etc.

Thompson and his wife have recorded separate tracks on Evangeline Made: A Tribute to Cajun Music that are both so beautiful. Hers is Valse de Balfa - one of my favorite Cajun trad songs.
