Listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast


Some days, I feel real lucky. It's not yesterday when there's a soft, thin powder of snow on the ground that cancels my kids' school.

Rather it's the days I turn on an episode of the podcast. I feel happiness flow throw me. It's from listening to all of these great bands. I feel the love of people, both inside and outside our Celtic community, no matter what their musical style or beliefs.

I feel lucky and joyful. That is my gift to you.

You can set aside your problems for an hour, to celebrate Celtic music from Ryan MacNeil, Ciana, Na Skylark, Bellow Bridge, Forkroot, The Gatehouse Well, Hibernia, The Jeremiahs, Jodee James, Natalie MacMaster/Donnell Leahy, Dom Duff, Screaming Orphans, The Founding.
