I would say you're the best judge of this for yourself. Only thing to check out is if it is for a competition as opposed to a performance. Some competitions I believe specify the choreography music must have Celtic influences. That being said if you've got the imagination I'm sure you could create a choreography to any song you really enjoy.

Personally, I love the band "Great Big Sea". Choreography a dance to one of their songs is on my huge list of "Stuff I'd love to do when I actually have the time".

When I was looking for music for my choreography, my dance teacher and I first thought of our theme or what we wanted the music to sound like. Then, we went on itunes and searched our ideas and for Celtic music. Eventually, we found a peace that had perfect elements for our choreography. We then edited and cut the music to fit our specifications. Finally, we styled the dance around the music and we had a choreography. It is a lot of work, but in the end this method led us to finding great choreography music. I hope it helps you to!

The Landlord's Walk and Nelson Mandela's Welcome to the City of Glasgow by Blair Douglas are two of my favorites. MacUmba is the name of a pipe band with a Carribean flair. Don't know the song titles right off hand, but they are fun to listen to.

I love Busindre Reel by Hevia, not sure if it would work for a choreo, but worth a listen!

The band Wolfstone has a lot of great tunes, they include some rock too it's neat! I used Zeto for a small group, it was awesome :) You can download the songs off itunes for 99 cents!

Great Big Sea makes for some great music, so do the Red Hot Chili Pippers and The Wicked Tinkers!!

I agree with Felsa.

I recently did a solo choreography dance to Toss the Feathers and it went off quite well.

The music changes frequently, and opens itself up for contemporary interpretations (for example I had a bit of jazz in my dance)

Another nice one is Explosive by Bond.

Happy Choreographing :)
