More bubbling… Celtic mouth music

September 11, 2009

As a brief sequel to my earlier post on doo-wop, I should mention that like most sensible people, I do like to root around the Ubuweb archives when I fancy something tasty, and one of my recent favourites has been their mp3s of Celtic mouth music. Otherwise known as didling, lilting, puirt a beul, cheek music… some accounts speculate that this music came about following the banning of pipes after the Jacobite uprisings in 1745, which if true is testament to a certain resourcefulness.
