Busketeer

I don't know, why I did not recognize these two musicians before. You gotta watch them play, just Bouzouki (or is it a Mandola?) and Accordion.

I just read about that tragic car crash in which two members of Asturian band Felpeyu have been killed. The band were involved in an accident on the way to a concert. The rest of the band survived with only minor injuries, but bouzouki player Ígor Medio and guitarist, bassist and vocalist Carlos Redondo were tragically killed.

I just discovered this fantastic musicians. It's a sad day for celtic music.

Here's a fantastic video of a workshop in Polonia: “Workshop” de Felpeyu en Polonia. (2004) featuring Igor Medio -vocalist and bouzouki and Carlos Redondo - vocalist and a guitar player and many more musicians.

N'Alcordanza: Gatos del Fornu - Tierra

Los Gatos del Fornu live in the Memorial concert for Igor Medio and Carlos Redondo from Asturian band Felpeyu. There are so many bands in northern Spain playing celtic music. Me, I don't like that bagpipe thing so much, but when there are vocals I love this music.

Naheba

NAHEBA is a folk music group from Cantabria (North Spain), whose work is based mainly in the composition and arrangements of Cantabria traditional music. Naheba sound is mainly acoustic,based in instruments like fiddle,flute,bagpipe,acoustic guitar,bouzouki and percussion. Our most important influences are acoustic groups like The Tannahill Weavers, LLan de Cubel, Corquieu, The Bothy Band; and irish,scottish and cantabrian music in general. The group was established by the end of 2003,when Javi,Sergio and Rafa,all of them well known folk and celtic musicians,joined together to play some of the arrangements of cantabrian tunes Javi had written.A few months later,Jose (Cambera'l Cierzu) and Esteban joined the group,but this last one left a year later due to personal reasons. Another Javi (L'Arca de Sueños) substituted him, and brought with him a personal and sparkling fiddle playing and a big amount of Campoo tunes. In March 2006 that line-up performed their first concert in Sala Eventos (Santander)

Band members:
Javi García: Bouzouki, flauta travesera de madera. Rafa Ibáñez: Guitarra acústica. Javi “el Niñu”: Violín, voz. Sergio Sordo: Gaita, Whistles. Jose Luís Rodríguez “Puma”: Bodhram, voz.
