There is hardly any other musical tradition to be found than the celtic one that had such an enormous influence on fingerstyle guitar music. Scottish and irish folk tunes have always been a neverending source of inspiration for many even “classical” composers, John Dowland, for example, just to name one. Today, celtic songs are “regulars” in the repertoire of most acoustic guitarists. The two CDs “Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar” offer a very charming compilation of celtic music, presented by seven world-class guitar players from Duck Baker to Pierre Bensusan. It’s not only the remarkable collection of 40 songs that makes “Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar” such a valuable edition, moreover, these records put the listener in the happy - and rare! - position to compare these exceptional guitarists just on one CD. Technical approach, arrangement, interpretation and, last but not least, the selection of songs itself draw a detailed picture of the individual artist, as well as offering deep insight into a part of their musical roots. That makes “Ramble To Cashel” and “The Blarney Pilgrim” a highly enjoyable walk through music history - in many respects.
