Tonight's Music



Two from Camercaillie's CD Beautiful Wasteland, one of their best.

However their fan base disagreed. The band's willingness to go beyond the traditional Celtic mold and incorporate other musical styles into their music infuriated many of their most loyal fans. After this CD the band retreated into more traditional Celtic musical forms, even titling their next all original CD NĂ durra , (Naturally, for its reliance upon traditional instruments, rhythms, ect.).

Although the band's later work has been excellent it has never matched what it could have been had they continued to expand their horizons and blend the best of what the rest of the world had to offer with their traditional Celtic sound.
