John Fleagle - Doon da Rooth

I'm not quite sure whether this is a traditional Irish jig / reel, but it sure sounds like it is...

Shira Kammen - The Wren in the Hurze

Cactus Wren

While this song can be found on Shira Kammen's "The Castle of the Holly King" album, she is definately not the one who sings in "The Wren in the Hurze" ;-) This is a great celtic song featuring fast, mind-boggling lyrics (think tongue-twister) and impressive percussions. I think a Bodhrán is used, but don't quote me on that.
