This is the 1997 CD release of the self titled from Maritime Canadian Celtic Folk group KILT. 12 tracks of energetic toe-tapping tunes. CD is a mix of traditional songs, originals and some unusual (but sorta cool!!) covers. The odd cover choices include "I Was Made For Loving You" (yep - the Kiss song) and "Come On Eileen" originally by Irish rockers Dexy's Midnight Runners.
"Founded on three East Coast traditions…….. Music, Dancing, and Having a Good Time, Halifax based Kilt consists of five very talented and energetic musicians who are certainly on the rise. Kilt is lead by lead vocalist Tony Ronalds, Brennan MacDonald, Bonnie Jean MacDonald, Brian Buckle and Scott MacFarlane. They have been tearing up towns across the country."
Kilt's rendition of the Kiss song "I Was Made for Loving You" is my favourite celtic cover tunes of a rock song. Play it at your wedding and watch everybody put their hands together and dance. I am sure these guys have played this at the Red Shoe Pub in Mabou. What a site that would be.
