About Booking Celtic Music
Most of the popular music now thought of as "Celtic" were once common in many places in Western Europe. The term Celtic Music is applied to the music of Ireland and Scotland, because both countries have produced their own unique styles of Celtic music. Sinead O'Connor has been noted as successfully infusing traditional Celtic music into her popular songs. Common instruments utilized in Celtic music are the harp, the mandolin, the fiddle, the flute and bagpipes.
Some things to consider when hiring Celtic Music are to make sure you listen to audio and watch video clips. This will ensure that you truly do book the best for your next event! Next, you want to get references. Talk to people in the area about the performer/group and get feedback. Finally, get a contract.
