I listen to a bunch of Celtic Folk and Celtic punk. Are you looking for easy, soft listening or something with a punch?

Regardless, I'm gonna go ahead and suggest Celtic Women, The Dubliners, The Pogues, Enya, Flogging Molly, The Brobdingnagian Bards, and Dropkick Murphys. That's a healthy mix of different kinds of Celtic music.

If you're looking for more traditional Celtic, I have several. Celtic Guitar by Michael Hromeck, Celtic Treasures, and Celtic Nights are all very good albums. Very soothing, and the first two choices feature music written by the famous composer Turlough O'Carolan, who was the last great Irish bard, and wrote most of his music while blind! Legend has it that his most famous piece, She Beag, She More, was inspired while sleeping atop a fairy mound. It's featured on both of those albums, with different arrangements.

Also, anything from Lord of the Dance, Riverdance, or Feet of Flames. And Mike Oldfield's The Voyager album. Yes, the SAME Mike Oldfield who did Tubular Bells. (Track one of which is possibly better known as the original Exorcist theme.) Voyager is just beautiful.
