Listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast


Wow! The outpouring of support for the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is incredible. I want to thank and welcome all of the new Patrons of the Podcast. Thank you for supporting our awesome community.

Speaking of which, traditional Irish musicians in the DFW area are organizing Tunes for Texas on Saturday, September 23 through Sunday, September 24th at Trinity Irish Pub. They are trying to raise $10,000 for victims of Hurricane Harvey with a 24-hour Irish session. You can support this great cause and help with disaster relief for South Texas. Visit this link! Anyone want to match my $250 donation?

We are just 6 months away from St. Patrick's Day. So we're gonna celebrate with an extended show of Halfway to St Patrick's Day Celtic music from Black Market Haggis, Sharon Shannon, Lochlainn, Coast, Forkroot, Screeched Inn, Peat in the Creel, Mary Jane Lamond & Wendy MacIsaac, Mark Davies, Seamus Kennedy, Crepuscule, Screaming Orphans, Ed Miller, Men of Thunda, Fiddler's Green, Alasdair White, Kilmaine Saints, Nancy Daily-Green, Battlelegs, Kilted Kings.

Read the shownotes.

Thanks as always for supporting the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. Let's keep taking care of people be they Celts are not. It makes me happy that our community is kind and giving to all those who are less fortunate. Thank you for being you. Slainte!
