Listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast

2-Hours of St Patrick's Day Music

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I hope you have some amazing plans for St. Paddy's Day. I also hope it includes this week's 2-hour St. Patrick's Day episode of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast.

You can now download listen and share the show now. It's packed with 30 awesome songs and tunes from Garry O Meara, String Theory, Emish, Prydein, Plastic Paddy, Patrick D'Arcy, Kilrush, Andrew McKee, Beltaine, Finbar Furey, Black 47, Drone, Wild Colonial Bhoys, Thomas Patrick Kenny, Seamus Kennedy, The Muckers, Mitchell and Vincent, Abby Green, The Led Farmers, Derek Warfield & The Young Wolfetones, The Brayzen Heads, Spencer Murray & Pipeslinger, Brobdingnagian Bards, The Elders, NUA, Jim Cope, Battlelegs, Black Market Haggis, Sisters of Murphy, In For A Penny. Find links to the bands in the shownotes.

If you find music you enjoy, please look up the band on iTunes. You will find most of the bands there. I confess, I'm a bit biased since they were kind enough to feature the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast on the Podcast Homepage of iTunes.

But what's most important is that if you enjoy the music from these artists, please buy their music. Tell the bands how much you appreciate them sharing it with us.

Especially when some are SO AMAZING as to share free MP3s with you as well. If you didn't get the email yesterday, you can now download this year's "17 Free Celtic MP3s for St. Patrick's Day". Read the article. Follow the links to the bands. Download the music. And share, share, share!

Thank you for joining the Irish & Celtic Music Revolution!

Slainte! And be safe on St. Patrick's Day!
