    Great Band: They have a Christmas Song called Gaudete that the harmonies shine on it.

    Another amazing band. I think my favorite song by them is Thomas The Rhymer.

    Steeleye Span is another underrated Celtic Folk Rock band somewhat because a lot of these bands are compared to Fairport Convention. They had one hell of a fiddle player in Peter Knight and another beautiful vocalist in Maddy Prior. My favorite song by them is All Around My Hat which is probably there most famous song as well.

    A lot of this style of music is compared to the success that Fairport Convention has had and no Celtic Folk Rock band can live up to that, but Steeleye Span and bands like Pentangle have put out some great stuff.
