Happy Celtic Music Month!

W'ere just 16 days away from St Patrick's Day. And it's on Saturday again. W00h00! That's bloody brilliant. It's gonna be a big month for all us Celtic music fans.

This week, you get music from Ciana, Arise & Go, Christine Primrose, Old Blind Dogs, Kellswater Bridge, String Theory, The Changing Room, The Jacobites By Name, Cormac Gannon, Garry O Meara, Runa, Emish, David Curley & Mick Broderick, Sons of Malarkey, Wild Colonial Bhoys, The Ugly Mugs.

Listen, read and share the shownotes.

BTW. Did you notice that I'm cross-posting the show on our YouTube page? Do me a quick favor and post a comment on the latest show. I wanna try and get more traffic to that site. Your comments TODAY will make a big impact.

Finally, I want to thank everyone who joined the Brobdingnagian Bards on Patreon. We're less than $100 away from releasing our first new music 10 years. W00T! :)

Last week, I asked if you knew of a Celtic artist or band on Patreon? I didn't get any responses. Makes me a little worried that you might have trouble emailing me. Could you do me another favor? Just reply right now. You can tell me your quick plans for St Patrick's Day while you're at it.

Thanks and Slainte!
