Current Trend: Celtic Folk
But even listing these bands, I have only tipped the iceberg. I only got through the above 10 bands, but I have 26 on my computer, and I plan on listening to more in the coming weeks. I've got bands like Blood or Whiskey, Flatfoot 56, Great Big Sea, Roaring Jack (Australian!), and Street Dogs, all worthy of a listen, and all mentioned on various lists as being one of the best within the genre, I look forward to comparing them.
I only write this Current Trend, because I have seen my music tastes shift. From the folk Celtic of the end of last month/beginning of this month, towards classic metal (AC/DC, Iron Maiden), and I figured this was as good as a time as any for a new article. If my tastes shift back (which is more then possible to happen) then another Celtic Current Trend will be had!
