FiddleSticks : FiddleSticks is the Davis family folk group that performs folk songs and traditional tunes from the Celtic lands, from England, and from America.

Featured instruments include fiddle, flutes, cello, bodhran (Irish drum), guitar, and vocals.

Celtic Woman’s PBS special has also been a runaway hit, airing an incredible 3,400 times and 316 different PBS stations since its debut in March of 2005
Rebecca Fox : I am a 32 year old folk singer living in Worcester, England. I sing regularly at The Somers Traditional Folk Club which meets every Friday evening, and also at various sessions in and around Worcester. I perform mostly traditional folksongs, usually unaccompanied or with guitar.
Ramblinghouse : Ballad singer Margaret Barry rarely failed to gain attention with her gutsy voice, pronounced Cork accent and simple banjo accompaniment.She was born in Peter Street, Cork, in 1917, into a family of travellers.
Pauline Scanlon on MySpace : Deeply immersed in the tradition yet completely aware of the edgier developments in contemporary alternative music, Scanlon is capable of making the oldest ballads sound immediate and fresh while granting newer material a timeless resonance.
Abney Park : Abney Park comes from an era that never was, but one that we wish had been. An era where airships waged war in the skies, and corsets and cummerbunds were proper adventuring attire.
Sean Keane : Seán Keane from County Galway is decribed as the `greatest musical find of the 90`s` by `The London Independent`. Traditional Irish, folk and even country and blues songs all lend themselves to his unique style and unforgettable voice.
Wikipedia : Initially known as “The Ronnie Drew Group”, the founding members of The Dubliners were Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Ciaran Bourke and Barney McKenna. The change of name came about due to Drew’s unhappiness with the name, coinciding with the fact that Kelly was reading Dubliners by James Joyce at the time.
