St. Patrick's Day Internet Festival Starts This Weekend
St. Patrick's Day is less than two weeks away. That means, it's time to start promoting the 2nd annual St. Patrick's Day Internet Music Festival!
The goal of the festival is to bring Celtic music fans some of the best indie Celtic music performed LIVE for your pleasure during St. Patrick's Week. Nearly every day running up to March 17th, you'll enjoy live performances on Concert Window and YouTube.
To that end, I've booked six awesome artists (and me) for the festival. Here's the line up:Sunday, March 8, 3 PM EST - Burning Bridget Cleary at Concert Window
Saturday, March 14
Sunday, March 15
Tuesday, March 17 - St. Patrick's Day!!!!
On St. Patrick's Day, I hope to release a bunch of live performances on March 16th so you'll have more shows to watch live on the actual day. Subscribe to our playlist to watch videos as they go live!
Oh! And don't forget. It's #CelticThursday. Tell people to go to stpatricksdayparty.net/festival to join this year's St. Patrick's Day Internet Music Festival.
PS. Every year, I publish an article called "17 Free Celtic Music Downloads for St. Patrick's Day". As a subscriber to this magazine, you will be the FIRST to download these awesome songs and tunes! Stay subscribed!
THIS WEEK ON THE PODCAST SHOW
People often associate St. Patrick’s Day as a time for Irish drinking songs and green beer. However, it all starts as a kid. I recorded an album of St. Patrick’s Day Songs for Kids because I wanted to celebrate the children who find their love of Celtic music through the holiday.
This week, I’m gonna share my new album of Celtic kids songs in its entirety, plus a great Irish Celtic songs and tunes from Keltic Kudzu, Sharon Shannon, Nancy Daily Green, Culann’s Hounds, Sarah Dinan, FiddleSticks, and Ed Miller.
Listen and share at celticmusicpodcast.com/198.

The Elf King's Horn CD Project. The album offers 16 tracks, including 5 new instrumentals. Every track is an original composition, with styles ranging from Celtic to Folk and New Age with an underlying mystical tone. Each tune tells a story. There are magical "come-hithers," forest encounters with the wee folk, songs of journeys and of home and instrumentals that will have your heart dancing. You might say that some of the tunes were whispered in my ear by the Fairies themselves!
... and of course, I have a new album on Kickstarter. It's more Sea Shanty with a Steampunk feel than Celtic, but it's a FUN album project.
Dragons vs. Pirates, New Steampunk Album by Marc Gunn by Marc Gunn. Steampunk album by Marc Gunn with lyrics by Rie Sheridan Rose telling the horrific story of Capt Black Jack Murphy. #SaveTheDragons
