Generally nothing, but, and it's company dependant, I do like real music :)
I have camped with friends who play fiddles, flutes, bodhrans, etc., and who have singing voices that are so much a part of the whole 'sitting around a fire' rightness, that it greatly adds to the pleasure of the evening.

I have to agree with Toddy - an evening around the fire with friends can be enhanced with a bit of live music - but no canned stuff please!

Four minutes and fifty-five seconds of silence. :D or whatever the composer called it.
I do have a wee radio/MP3 player and it's good for the weather forecast and Sailing By before the Shipping Forecast is always nice. Mainly audiobooks on the MP 3 player though. Generally I listen to the crackle of the fire and nature settling down/gearing up for the night shift. And in really quiet places my own heartbeat and breathing.
My usual camping partner suffers from tinnitus so usually has a wee wireless playing quietly afore he nods off to block the ringing in his lugs. He keeps it quiet though and our shelters are far enough apart for it not to be a problem.
Some music can enhance a place & time, others are best served by silence, it's up to the individual and as long as we don't annoy each other then all's good.

If no one else is about i'll normally stick the radio on. Radio 1 gets a good reception pretty much everywhere up here.

The very worst is when some talentless nerk tries to inflict their (lack of) music talent on me. If you are good enough to play professionally, well, do that. If not, have the decency to practice where others don't have to hear it!

Bushcrafter (boy, I've got a lot to say!)
At about two this morning I was looking after some badgers in a field in Gloucestershire.

Picture it - frosted grass, tranquility, the milky way, more than just the odd shooting star.

A couple turned up to help. They brought sandwiches, and a radio.

Totally ruined my last night of the year in Gloucestershire.

Clannad sounds interesting...
Had a thing for All about Eve many years ago for nighttime lullabies. Out in the field I've been partial to a bit of radio 4 on occasion but on the whole, natures 'music' is plenty enough.
I also agree with having a few round a campfire with a few good folk instruments is pleasing to the mood and ears!
