I saw them live at the De La Warr Pavillion in Bexhill on Sea last night.

Brilliant and very talented! Any other fans in UKC?

A brilliant group. Another one you may like is Earth Affair, an Icelandic group that has I think actually has some of the Afro Celt members contributing.

Yep. Never seen them live, but I have four of their albums and listen to them fairly regularly. Good music for coding when I don't need to think too hard and need some momentum. I bought Sound Magic unheared from a record shop in Galway in '98 and I still think its their best album - especially the two versions of Whirl-y-Reel. When You're Falling and The Silken Whip from Further in Time are other faves.

If you like them then you might like the Peatbog Faeries too.

They've definitely changed over the years and morphed. Their last album felt like it was going back to their earlier work. Shooglenifty are another one who have at times gone with a similar, if less worldy sound. Solar Shears was probably the closest they got to the Afro Celt electronic vibe.

Yep, stumbled across them playing in a wood at Boomtown a few years ago. They were ruddy brilliant.

I'm a big fan. Seen them live a number of times, (once at Cambridge Folk Festival!)

I've got that CD of their that you can do a track remix with on your computer.

Fab stuff.
