Celtic music artists list, including favorite Irish music bands like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good celtic bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top Celtic music bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Celtic groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all Celtic bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest Celtic music bands of all time, since the most famous Celtic artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best Celtic music.

You can click on the Celtic music band names to see more information about that particular notable Celtic music group. If they're near the top of the best Celtic music artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top Celtic music bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the Celtic music band names themselves.

This list includes Van Morrison, Ritchie Blackmore and more artists. Upvote the best artists to see them rise closer to the top of the list. Don't like Dropkick Murphys or John Butler? Give them a thumbs down.

All important, significant and iconic names in Celtic music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new Celtic music bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of Celtic music, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into Celtic music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good Celtic music bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent Celtic bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best Celtic music bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest Celtic musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular Celtic bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
