Listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast

In the Name of Love


It's the hopeful romantic in me, but I like making my Valentine's Day episodes of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. No. They're not all mushy romance. It's just a bunch of songs and tunes that have a love or romance feel to them. I hope you find this week's show to be worthy of your love and that you will share it with your friends.

You'll hear music from Beth Paterson, Andrew Finn Magill, Battlelegs, West of Mabou, Kilted Kings, The Sorries, Sean Orr, Ciara Considine, Nathan Gourley and Laura Feddersen, Amadan, Carbon Leaf, The Muckers, Sons of Malarkey, The Prodigals, and Jesse Ferguson.

Sharing is a huge part of any community. Communities thrive on interactions. So this week, I want to encourage you to do two things:

  1. Share the podcast today. Just tell 'em to go to to smile and tap their toes.
  2. Listen to the podcast. Find out who your favorite bands are in the show. Then share the show again, this time tell people who your favorite artist was in the latest show.

My new album with Kilted Kings climbed to #13 on the iTunes World Music Charts. Thanks to everyon who bought the album on iTunes. You can still get it there or buy it on CD Baby.

Last, I have some great news. We hit our $450 Milestone. So next week, listen for a 2-hour Celtic Music Retrospective!

Have a great week and keep sharing with your friends.
