Sponsoring Savannah Irish Festival...
The Irish & Celtic Music Podcast is a proud sponsor of the Savannah Irish Festival. 10% of all the profits made by the podcast goes toward supporting Celtic non-profits. Usually I look for small Celtic festivals where we can do the most good and who also feature some of the artists who are featured in this podcast. I'm happy to see that Seamus Kennedy and Syr are both performing at the Savannah Irish Festival. If you'd like to win some free tickets to the festival. Please subscribe to our Celtic Music Magazine. And make sure you check out the festival website.
If you have know of a smaller Celtic festival who could use our support, please contact me.
