While Instrumental Irish Folk Music is common finding it can be hard as you will often be lead down a road of traditional Irish songs in the Irish language so to find the best type of traditional Irish Music without words it would be best to start with Cheile music properly know as (Ceol na Chéile) in the Irish language is generally an Instrumental Music Genre and a typical Instrumental Irish folk Music genere . I am sort of ashamed to say it as someone from Ireland I know little about this music and since I spent most of my youth just trying to get the hell out of Ireland I never did have much Interest in this type of music mostly because I associated most Irish folk music it with old people and found it boring.
Besides just trying to find Cheile music try looking into Jigs, Reels, Tin whistel music, Irish harp music there are many styles of Irish folk music that is Instrumental and discovering the Instrumental folk music genres of Ireland can be hard since many Irish peoplle do not use the language outside of school and the Irish language taught in school is really just for people with an interest in perusing a career in the civil service and teaches little about everyday language and expression.
This piece of Instrumental Irish Folk was the best example I could find since it is an old video of people playing music in a bar in Ireland maybe it’s not a bar but there is sure to be drink involved somewhere the music is played without singing also without a harp actually I never met anyone that could afford a harp in Ireland. How about you do you know a better instrumental folk example from Ireland, Maybe you play this Irish folk music and would like to tell the readers more about it and how they can find even more Irish folk and give them more direction when searching for Instrumental Irish Folk Music without being directed to vocal music of Ireland. I know the cheiftens made some instrumental albums but that is the only traditional Irish Instrumental group that comes to mind easily since they once won a Grammy and made the Irish folk music scene popular around the world but do not know if many are making Instrumental Irish Folk Music now that the Celtic tiger is dead it is not cool enough I guess
