The Last Ship
It's about time. I'm Scottish/American and me and my boys love this type of music. We are always buying CD's from Celtic music bands we see and hear at Highland games and the like, so we can hear this type of music and discover part of our musical heritage. I'm glad that it is getting produced by a cerebral and well known artist. I hope it catches on with Celtic and non-Celtic folk and will grow a broader fan base opening the door for more Celtic music. Cheers, Andrea (Chisholm)
