9. I second the recommendation for the Chieftains. I know they are not obscure enough for many people
to appreciate but they do Celtic music very well. One of my favorite Chieftains albums is Tears of Stone with Bonnie Raitt, Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Loreena McKennitt, Joan Osborne, Joni Mitchell, Sinead O'Connor, Sissell and Diana Krall whose voice will send chills down your spine when you hear her sing Danny Boy. It also includes songs by the Corrs and the rankin family. This album cayused me to go out and buy four new albums by people who I had never heard before. I can't recommend it highly enough!
