A person could spend a fortune acquiring all of the excellent Celtic compilations that came out in the 1990s. Celtic music comes primarily from Ireland and Scotland, but most of the artists heard on this eclectic CD (which spans 1996-98) aren't Irish or Scottish.

Putumayo Presents: Celtic Tides. Now Putumayo offers the compelling collection Dublin to Dakar, a veritable feast of worldwide Celtic music, accompanied by excellent liner notes detailing the migration-derived legacy of the Celts. Featuring multilingual artists from Italy, France, Spain, and Guinea, among other countries, the compilation is an exciting blend of tradition and startling innovation, ranging from slightly precious elfin sounds to reggae-inflected dance music and emotive balladry to a gypsy-inspired reel. As someone with a deep interest in Celtic cultures, I did not find this album to be representative of either Celtic music or of the Odyssey idea Putumayo was trying to promote with this album. Not to say it's all bad: the Modena City Ramblers song, the Alan Stivell/Youssou N'Dour collaboration and the Cheb Mami song were all good choices and good songs.
