Yes !!…...Derek    Mc Cormack....he died very  young.....but a great singing voice..as you said, Ian

John McDermott   is actually  Scottish born....with Irish roots......and sings with a couple of other  Irish Tenors...good stuff...possibly not to the liking of the "long haired music (??)  boys " on here though....:rolleyes:....just the old "different  strokes  for different folks" thing......:)

It only takes a bit of Celtic heritage.

School our boys went to has a pipe band and a bloody good one.  Speech nights were awesome.  The then student pipe major was a serious competition threat to older ones on the circuit.

BTW I'd have to check but IIRC Kate Wolf had a song about Eric Bogle

That was fantastic, Waters and Gilmour worked together writing that one and later confirmed it was done in tribute to Syd Barrett , who had been booted from the band because he was popping drugs like M&Ms, some years before, but whose cheese was sliding farther and farther off his cracker. It was a good album and an even better song but really wasn’t one of their more popular releases, at least at the time. 

Sid went on to try to do some solo stuff but really couldn’t get his crap together and I think after 2 flop albums he went and hid in his  house till he died in the early 2000s its a shame because real real early Floyd was pretty darn cool.

Some make take offense to this because she isn't singin in Eing-Lish.

LR has stated that growing as as an American whose Mexican family came to America that peeps "sang in Spanish and spoke in English".

A voice of all-time that never will be equaled, in no matter the language.

I don’t know about anyone else but anymore I like more of what pandora digs up versus the radio... Tyler Childers, Turnpike Troubadours, Cody Jinks, Sturgill Simpson are ringing bells. I like songs that have a meaning in the lyrics

Agree. Those are all good to listen to. Colter Wall and BlackBerry Smoke are two more with little or no radio play.

This is pretty funny.  If you are a rodeo fan the last 10 seconds of the video will really make you laugh. Saw Randy Rogers along with Whiskey Myers, and Casey Donahew in STL a few years ago. That’s a fun crowd that plays some pretty good music.

Same here. That's all I listen to at work. Got a local red dirt country station that plays a lot of those guys. Never had listened to Cody jinks other than what radio played but I really like his music. Since I got Pandora I listen to alot of his stuff. Also like it cause I got southern rock and classic rock stuff set on it. Plug it in by my computer and I can just reach over and tap like or dislike as the songs come up.

Music is one of those things... pure taste. There's no rhyme or reason to what one person likes relative to another. I can't stand this version; I couldn't even finish watching it. I love Floyd. A very special chapter in the story of my life would be played with a Pink Floyd soundtrack. And this sounds all wrong to me. Not nitpicking, mostly just remarking that's it's funny how one thing sounds good to one person and another, with similar tastes, may despise it. It's interesting to say the least.

Turnpike Troubadours, Sturgill Simpson and Jason Isbell. I really like them all musically, but lyrics matter too and they're all great poets. I think that gets lost in all the pageantry in "music". Maybe it's because I like the english language and I utterly suck at anything musical, personally. I don't know.

Very true on the lyrics. I like skynyrd alot and while probably not the best music they had as far as instrumentally. Curtis loew is my favorite by them. It just tells the story and I like that.

I should contribute. Or, I want to contribute.

Jason Isbell wrote this song when he was with the Drive By Truckers. I figured it was just a great song about a young man and his conflicted feeling for his murdered father's memory. Then on a whim (or because I couldn't understand one of the lines, I don't remember), I looked it up online and I'll be darned if it isn't a true story! So here's a great example of fine musicianship and fine lyric-writing.
