Irish Music Farewell to Erin

Celtic Music Magazine

Greetings my friends

There's a bunch of new music on last week's podcast. I had a lot of fun creating the show. There's nothing like finding and sharing new Celtic music. There some gems here you can listen to on iTunes or on our website, where you can also post comments.

Thanks for all the new reviews of the podcast on iTunes. The more, the merrier. So keep 'em coming.
