Celtic music resources
Online CD stores
Buying CDs online has become a quick, secure, and fairly cheap way to get music. The quality of
the store varies, but for celtic music, I have found that for price, coverage and quality, CD Universe seems to do a consistently very good job, and in over a year of recommending them, have had no complains.
Online Book stores
Competition is growing, but Amazon.com still has a strong lead in buying books online, and is the only store with a decent selection of celtic music titles. Recent titles include Ciaran Carson's Last Night's Fun [review], part narrative, part introduction to the traditions of Irish music; the authorised biography of the Chieftains; and Gearoid O hAllmhurain's nifty Pocket Guide to Irish Traditional Music.
Help Out Ceolas!
This site is free to you, but it costs money for me to run it. There's a very simple way that you can help Ceolas to continue as a free service without paying a penny: make bookmarks of the above Book and CD links, and use them if you want to buy books and CDs online: these merchants have agreed to pay a comission to Ceolas for any purchases made by following these links. Tell your friends too! Beware that the Amazon.com link has to be made directly (to http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect-home/theceolascelticm, since as soon as you click on it, the site redirects you to a session-specific URL).
