Galicia is in the north of Spain, not to be confused with another Galicia
which is in Poland. Although not classed with the Celtic countries on linguistic
grounds, the culture there seems to have some relationship to some of the
Celtic countries. Apparently the Iberian peninsula may have been partially
inhabited by Celtic-speaking peoples in pre-Roman times. At any rate, Galicia
has some very nice music, and there is a page called
A Música Folk e Tradicional da Galiza
describing it. However, the page appears to be written in Galician. You can
more or less puzzle it out if you know some other Romance language. Let me
see, I bet the title means "Folk and traditional music of Galicia".
(What's the difference between folk and traditional, I wonder?) I tried
the Altavista language translator on this page and discovered that Portuguese works
better than Spanish. But neither of them works all that well.
Folksy Links page
attempts to list all folk artists in every European country, including many
from minority language groups that don't have their own spot on the map
(but he has a flag for each one!). Some non-European as well.
Check out the links page for additional references.
