Celtic Spirit Around The World


I love Celtic music. In fact, I love all things Celtic. Over the past few months I’ve really been hooked on this Irish folk/rock group called the Orthodox Celts. They’ve been around for years (since 1992 specifically), but they have been playing under the radar. In 2007 they released their latest album, One Two Five.

Also, I should mention that although, they toss out some great variations on traditional Irish music they are not actually Irish. They are native to Belgrade….yes we're talkin Serbia. How F’NG cool is that? Ever since I laid eyes on Serbian tennis superstar, Ana Ivanovic, I have been in love with everything Serbian. So this is like my dream come true. Serbian musicians performing Celtic music. HOT STUFF!

For more info on Orthodox Celts here is their website.

Speaking of Celtic influences in music. Here are some other good artists in the Celtic Metal genre….and yes you can have Celtic Metal. I only say that because some people in the past did not believe that Celtic Metal was real. Well, it is.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
