Listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast

Together With Celtic Music


If you've been listening for a while, then you know that the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is not a show about just Irish music, Ireland or Scotland, or one of the other Celtic nations. It's about the music of ALL of the Celts. It's about the diaspora of our music around the globe. It's about the fusion and evolution of the music through different cultures.

My goal is to showcase the many different styles of Celtic music and for us all to celebrate the music, together.

This week, you'll enjoy music from Stonecircle, Solas, Blarney Castle, We Banjo 3, Ed Miller, Burning Bridget Cleary, Chris Murphy, Andrew McKee, Black Market Haggis, Battlegs, Blackstone Cuil, The Brazen Heads, Booze Brothers, The Shanties. See the complete shownotes at

I was getting ready to compile my top-played artists in 2016 when I got an email from Michael O'Byrne listing his favorites. That got me thinking--who were your favorite bands, artists, songs and albums of 2016? Post your thoughts in this poll!

Finally, the CD release of Name On My Soul by Kilted Kings is on schedule for next Thursday, Feb 2nd. If you enjoy what I do, please buy a copy of the album or pre-order on iTunes and Amazon. You can do all of that at While you're there, check out our first official video of our song "Slainte Mhaith".

Have a great week and keep sharing with your friends.
