Listen to the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast


With less than a week to go until Valentine's Day, I decided to focus this week's show on Celtic Love Songs. I confess, I didn't go hardcore into the love theme. Mostly you'll enjoy beautiful and romantic Celtic music from Poitin, We Banjo 3, Jed Marum with Hugh Morrison and Mason Brown, Steve Hawson, The Gothard Sisters, Colleen Raney, Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer, Norah Rendell, The Shanties, Seagulls Are Drunk, Ryan MacNeil, Sligo Rags.
