Please consider putting some Irish traditional styles in your next style sets. I am looking for styles that fit old Irish Folk Songs like: The Sally Gardens, Red is the Rose, The Wild Rover, The Butcher Boy, Londonderry Air, etc..

To the OP, note that there are some MIDI Irish styles. I don't recall how many, just that they're there.

I'd like to see more contemporary Celtic styles as well. Enya, Afro-Celt Sound System, others.

some of the Irish styles are just too cluttered. There's Clancy, Irish slip jig, but to name a few. That's one of the points that I've made in the past. There's a lot of Celtic styles but most are far too busy and often spoil the main melody

I'd certainly like a few more variations on some of the Celtic Real Tracks. Many of the folk styles will work for specific Irish songs, though.
