Patrick O. (Shaun) Young, ... aka "Shaun That KelticDead Guy"
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 music cultures found throughout the world. I created the KelticDead Music initiative as a "story-music" venue. The Celtic Folk cultures include a LOT of music and songs from places found around the world, to include Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, Nova Scotia, Appalachia, Northern Europe, France, Spain, etc., and in many other formats like seafaring, Americana, and endo-European tunes and songs.
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 about fun facts around the tune or song.
