Madame Angela submits this, a favorite of hers, and I find it pretty good as well. The band is Emerald Rose, from Georgia (which seems kind of strange when one hears the variety of music they perform), and consist of Brian Sullivan (Logan), Larry Morris, Arthur Hinds and Clyde Gilbert. They play a mix of Pagan, folk, and Celtic tunes.
This "Bending Tradtion" is the second of their several albums....the sound here is basically heavied-up folk, maybe something along the lines of Skyclad (a good thing!), and they blend the "heavy-folk" with traditional jigs and the like. Might be worth your time to check this out.
