Here's a most enjoyable singer I found last week: Brian O hEadhra (there is a fada over the O, but my computer isn't letting me paste in the right character this afternoon). He's Irish, as the name suggests, but lives in Inverness, and sings in Scots Gaelic, Irish and English--and makes all of it sound quite good. He offers a whole seven songs on that MySpace page, so you get a fair sampling, to say the least. In case that isn't enough, he also performs with the trio MacGregor, Brechin & O hEadhra (yes, there's a fada in that too) and with the band Anam.
