Laugh Along, Funny Celtic Songs

I know we're a little late for April Fools' Day, but I heard a funny song from Black Market Haggis's new CD. I've always loved "Angus and the Kilt". It inspired me to compile an entire show of funny Celtic songs.

This week, you'll enjoy music from Black Market Haggis, Plastic Paddy, Ed Miller, Sligo Rags, Crikwater, New Shilling, The Crimson Pirates, Seamus Kennedy, Andrew McKee, Merry Wives of Windsor, Emerald Rose, Mairi Morrison & Alasdair Roberts, Stout Pounders, Dust Rhinos, River Drivers, The Canny Brothers Band, Barleyjuice. Find out more about the bands in the shownotes.

New this Week

Have a great week. Slainte!
