Celtic Guitar - Steve Baughman and Robin Bullock - Dans Keff Avec (Brittany)

I actually don't know much about Celtic music, atleast I don't listen to that type of music much. Well It's not that I don't like it, it's more that Celtic music is not that widespread. So it's not something you come across everyday. So because of that I had never hear of these great guitar players Steve Baughman and Robin Bullock before.

So here is some background:
Steve and Robin met as instructors at the Swannanoa Gathering's Guitar Week in 2000. And later they made their duo CD Celtic Guitar Summit. It was honored by Acoustic Guitar Magazine with an "Editor's Pick" as one of the top CDs of 2003.

Steve Baughman is the author of the Mel Bay books Celtic Guitar Method, Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar Solos, An Open Tunings Christmas, and his latest, Frailing the Guitar. He has recorded three solo CDs, A Drop of the Pure, The Angels' Portion and Old World Christmas, and appears with guitar legends Pierre Bensusan, Martin Simpson and El McMeen on the Rounder Records Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar CD/Video series The Blarney Pilgrim and Ramble to Cashel. In Bensusan's words.

Three-time WAMMIE Award winner Robin Bullock is a prolific composer and virtuoso multi-instrumentalist on 6- and 12-string guitars, cittern, mandolin, piano and bass guitar. A founding member of the innovative acoustic world-music trio Helicon (winners of the Association for Independent Music's prestigious INDIE Award), Robin has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe and appeared on over fifty CDs, including four critically acclaimed solo CDs, Green Fields, Midnight Howl, Between Earth and Sky and The Lightning Field.

This is a very nice song called Dans Keff Avec by Steve Baughman and Robin Bullock. The song is a traditional dance tune from Brittany that Steve and Robin have arranged as a fingerstyle duet. This tune appears on Steve's CD, Life in Prism and Guitar Tabs for the lead guitar part (played by Steve, the guy on the right with the glasses) can be bought from

Robin is playing and Taylor Acoustic Guitar while Steve is playing an Acoustic Guitar made by John Slobod of Circa Guitars in Maine.
