A Celtic music newbie would no doubt be enchanted by all this, but would glean relatively little about the incomparably rich cultural history behind these styles, despite admirably informative liner notes by Fiona Ritchie and Caitlin Ni Bheagain. Another sticking point is that compilations of music by women have become a tiresome concept, flagrant attempts to milk a marketing concept for all it's worth, whether or not they make any sense or even belittle the artists they are meant to promote. This set was one of the first such and the producers meant no harm, but these talented women can.

Brilliant compilation album, by far the best of Putumayo's several Celtic collections. The album's only weakness is the dismaying lack of representation by United States artists (and they are out there, folks). This bias is unfortunately short-sighted, because much of the new direction of Celtic music is coming from North America and the States in particular. I was given a copy of this CD several years ago and it instantly became my favourite cd-it far outstrips the original Celtic Women of the World collection. A wide range of styles are represented, from traditional gaelic to folk, and even though my gaelic isn't strong enough to interpret the all gaelic selections, I appreciate them for their oftentimes haunting beaty.

The talent is first-rate

Like its predecessor, Putumayo Presents Women of the World: Celtic, this superb compilation boasts a variety of Celtic and Celtic-influenced folk by female singers. This is hardly a CD for purists; rather, its focus is artists who provide a contemporary approach to the music of Ireland and Scotland. Not all of the 12 artists heard are from those countries - Natalie MacMaster, Pamela Morgan and Mary Jane Lamond are Canadian, while Eileen Ivers was born in the Bronx
