Here are five ways to celebrate Celtic culture through music.
Listen to the Tribute to Jed Marum--
Jed Marum is a Celtic folk singer who passed away at the beginning of May. This week, we're celebrating his life and music. omen. But I found some great Celtic music from Jed Marum, Fiddlinda, Carolina Ceili, Mason Brown, Hugh Morrison, Nine-8ths Irish, Jil Chambless, Ed Miller, Scooter Muse, Tullamore. Give it a listen.

Jed's music has been a big part of this podcast. He first showed up in show #13. But he quickly became an essential part of the show. He even allowed me to share some of his CDs, in their entirety, on the podcast. #42 featured Lonestar Stout and #91 featured Soul of a Wanderer.
Who Sings It Better?
I launched a new GAME with video this week on my YouTube channel. I share two videos of the same song. You vote for which you like better.
Go watch both videos. Post a comment on my video saying if you prefer my version, Jesse Ferguson's or another one. My hope is to announce a winner next week. Though if I get a lot of interaction, perhaps I'll put the winner against a third version if your choosing.
New Celtic CDs from...
You'll find new albums from Celtic Kitchen Party, Fear of Drinking, and Trevor Ryder. Find links here.
