Links: Irish and Celtic Music Podcast

This St. Patrick's Day, Shangrila Towers celebrates the music of Ireland! In this post, we'll look at one of the best ways to sample indie Irish and Celtic music on the web.

I almost feel silly writing up a review of the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast. After all, the show's title is perfectly descriptive of its contents: it's a music podcast hosted by Marc Gunn (a/k/a "The Celtfather") that plays Irish and Celtic music.

Still, if you're one of the millions and millions of people around the world who like Celtic music, you'll enjoy this show. One minor caveat: the artists skew towards the traditional-sounding and the songs are mostly instrumental, with plenty of fiddle, jigs, drinking songs, and ballads to go around. This is the sort of music that you imagine emanating from a warmly-lit pub in Galway.
