I like the Saw Doctors and of course the Chieftains. There is also a new group Brigit's Fire that I saw perform but not sure if they have a cd yet.

Here are some links to websites that feature some of my favorite dance bands that have CDs available: http://www.groovemongers.com (absolutely awesome band from Rochester, NY--celtic and world music--danced to them last night and now listening to their CD "Fresh Wares") http://www.radix.net/~jmangin/mandomafia/ (a central Virginia band) http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00001XDLG/sharonsartrageou/103-9981780-7246242 (wonderful Celtic guitar with a couple of vocals) http://www.swallowtail.com/ (a great New England-based contra dance band) Also, I like Afrocelt and have played their CDs in my classroom before--interesting blend of Celtic and African instruments, rhythms and melodies. By the way, for more information about contra dancing (I know a lot of teachers who dance!) you can visit my!
website, which explains what it's like and also includes more links to great music!http://www.art-rageous.net/Contradancing.html
