It all began when I started to listen to alot of different moviescores around the time the Lord of the Rings movies came to the cinema. It soon opened my eyes to celtic music, and I started it all by buying the Celtic Cirle cd's. From that time on, the celtic music has been a part of me ever since. You can't really talk about this kind of music without mentioning Lorrena McKennitt. So the rest of this entry I will dedicate to some good McKennitt songs. Even if this is not your cup of tea, I still recommend you take a look and also listen to the amazing stories.
