The Chieftains had released one or more explicite Christmas-CDs too. These must be still available. If you check out the web for them there are shown some more Christmas-CDs by other Irish / Celtic artists as well.

Re: NEW: Seydel All Minor

Yesterday at the festival I had been told in the Seydel factory, that it has been sold out again before the festival had started. Not even 1 piece left to try out. It will come again once more. Not exactly known when.
