If it's on CD, try SlowBast! (http://www.slowgold.com/) or look for free alternatives online.

And this a great wee YouTube for learning to sing along to a Gaelic song sung by Kathleen MacInnes:

Hmmm ... strange that you couldn't see it. I actually watched it, and thought it was really great. Then I watched several more videos of hers ... and before I knew it, I was watching dozens of videos from all sorts of Celtic singers.

Nice way to spend a couple of hours - I didn't even notice how much time had passed until I looked at the clock. It was a bit startling. But I guess that's how it goes, when you're enjoying yourself!

It may only be visible to youtube members, because I could not see it either. :(

No kidding? I'm not a YouTube member ... didn't even know you were supposed to be, in order to watch their videos. I just went there and clicked on the arrow and she started singing.

Maybe it has more to do with your security settings? I dunno - I'm certainly no whiz when it comes to knowing such things. But maybe someone else can weigh in?

I can tell you that it was a really nice clip ... :)

it's private and can only be viewed by people invited to do so by the uploader, it is a choice s/he made while uploading

Well, now I'm really confused - because she didn't invite me to watch it. I'd never even heard of her before. So that's quite strange - and yet another mystery to ponder in my life!

Hmmmm .....

... so I'm not ... special? See - and I was starting to feel exceptional, and now I'm back to being ordinary again. I blame it all on YouTube ... stupid YouTube geeks! I may need therapy now...

She took it off. Something to do with the launch of Seinn Thu Fhèin.

Oh, that helps me so much ... thank you for the hug! The single most effective therapeutic agent known to humankind, don't you think?

I'm feeling much better now - I'm special again. :P
