Listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast


I did it! I published my first episode after three weeks "off". Man, that was tough. I was trying to get the Scottish music show out. But I have SO LITTLE TIME this summer. And yesterday I hit the road for a gig in Indianapolis.

Before I left, I published a show with music from Peat the Creel, The Willis Clan, Jesse Ferguson, Kennedy's Kitchen, Shishonnah, Laura McGhee, Jamie Smith's MABON, The Gothard Sisters, Murray McDowell, Ciara Considine, Gaelic Storm, Leaping Lulu, Celtic Cross, Brian O h'Uigin.  Read the Shownotes

If you're in a Celtic band, I simplified the submission form. Send me your new album!

When you buy the Sainted Song Henger Collection from now until the end of July, you will not only get the t-shirt, the coffee mugs and the four CDs listed. I will also send you TEN random CELTIC CDs from my archive. This is your chance to support the podcast and get a LOT of great music. But the offer is only good for a limited time. Support the podcast now!

I'll be back next with more great music. Slainte!
