Kickstart New Celtic music...
Colleen Raney is fundraising for her next album on Indiegogo.
I'm trying to raise money for Sea Shanties for Cat Lovers on Kickstarter.
Who Sings It Better?
I extended the "Who Sings It Better" game for one more week. Watch Jesse Ferguson sing "Molly Malone". Then watch my recording of "Molly Malone". Post your vote in my comments. Who's version do you prefer? Or do you like a third version?
New Celtic CDs from...
You'll find new albums from The High Seas, Fiùran, KeyReel Raskolenko, Slugger's Rule, Ralf Kleemann - Harpist - Harfenspieler, and Shank Painters. Find links here.
Did you listen to last week's show?
What are you doing today while listening?
The easiest way to let me know is to email me right now. Send a comment or a picture of what your doing. You can also send a photo from one of your trips to a Celtic nation.
