View Full Version : British Isles music

Jun-25-2004, 7:35am
I was watching the film Master and Commander last night, and interspersed within there are some really cool jigs/horpipes that sounded "not Irish, but British"...sounded to me like flute and fiddle music, with some rudamentary percussion...made me inspired to look further into this area of traditional music.

Anyone have any good recorded sources for some instrumental music of this type...want to get some traditional stuff, as opposed to any progressive off-shoots.

(If you've seen the movie, I'm talking about the music that the crewman play...not the stuff that the doctor and Captain play).
