Patrick O. (Shaun) Young, ... aka "Shaun That KelticDead Guy"
A musician and an audio-visual engineer who has been creating "folk-based" sheet music arrangements and stories of traditional and made-public Celtic, Folk, Old-Time, and Sea-Faring music for over 40 years. After retirement as a systems engineer, he began creating the KelticDead Music initiative as a web-based, music-education hobby. As a "studio" musician he likes to play the Celtic whistles, the GDAD-tuned Bouzouki, and the bodhran, as well as diatonic harmonicas from time to time, as live audio music support within the stories that he also creates as video-based, movie selections with the music projects.
KelticDead Music is a WEB-based initiative with a mission to find interesting stories, tunes, and songs that are in the traditions of Celtic, Folk, Old-Time, and Sea-Faring music that are now found throughout the world and in every culture.
The main focus of the KDM is to find and arrange the tunes for easy play with live instruments like Celtic, six-hole whistles and other acoustic folk instruments and to provide stories about those tunes and songs into "BROADSIDES" that give insight about why the tunes and songs may have been created, or just provide fun facts about the tune or song.
Celtic-Folk Music is the heart and soul
of the history in which mankind has lived.
As part of the KelticDead Music initiative other music contributors join in to help create the projects presented in the KDM videos. They will be individually cited in each KDM Video Broadside they help to create.
It's all free and all fun. Be sure to check out the latest free video-album collection at
