    Grinning Beggar’s Paddy Rock Podcast: Episode #57 – The One Night Stand

    Grinning Beggar’s Paddy Rock Podcast: Episode #57 – The One Night Stand

    So it is starting to look like 2020 is cancelled. Even if it wasn’t I am not sure I could find the desire to go out in public and interact like I did before it all hit the fan. While I am not old, nor would I consider myself unhealthy, I still don’t care to unnecessarily put myself at risk of getting sick or worse. It was with this reasoning I decided to put together an awesome Online Celtic Festival unlike anything ever seen before. The Paddy Rock – One Night Stand. It was always my intention to have a festival and with Paddy Rock turning 20 this was really the only way to get everyone in one spot. So I took the idea and ran with it. I thought what do folks like at a festival.? They like Trad, they like Rock and The like Celtic Punk so I went out and get the best of all of it! I have everything from newly formed acts to well established performers to absolute legends. Don’t believe me?
    This is the list of performers: Mickey Spain, Mike Oberst of The Tillers, Raymond Coleman, Clover’s Revenge, Sean Suttell, Hair Of The Dog (NZ), Mike Rivkees & Jake Sullivan of Mickey Rickshaw, Bill Herring of 1916, Grass Mud Horse, The Muckers, The Ramshackle Army, Handsome Young Strangers and The Mahones.
    I am still impressed when I look at the list. So before you ask it is happening this Saturday June 13, 2020 and you can watch the live video from the Paddy Rock Facebook page – www.facebook.com/paddyrockradio – This is new to me and probably many of the performers so please bear with us and excuse the hiccups. Regardless this is for all of you and anyone else who wants to watch or listen on the website.  If you want to tip the performers, I would encourage it. If you want to donate to Paddy Rock you can do so at www.paypal.me/PaddyRock More than anything though I want you all to tune in, have fun and just do your best to forget about everything outside for a few hours. This is about taking care of our mental health and just enjoying some time with one another. As an added bonus will also find a new show here (Episode #57) for your listening pleasure! Hope to see you all Saturday and I really hope you enjoy the show.  Stay safe Paddy Rockers, much love!
    Big shout outs to Celtic Life Magazine and Folk N Rock Webzine or their help promoting this event.
    As always thanks for listening ~ Phil (aka The Grinning Beggar).

    Paddy Rock Roots: Episode #22 – The Forever Episode

    Paddy Rock Roots: Episode #22 – The Forever Episode

     

    It’s been a long while again, since October to be exact. And man have things gotten crazy since then! I sit here at home going on 6 weeks I think? I may be suffering from a little PTSD but who isn’t,  we are all are safe!  Anyway I figure music heals the soul and we can all use a little healing so it was time to throw down a new Paddy Rock Roots show for you. This is an all vinyl episode so I apologize for the crackle and hiss if it bothers you, but it is one of my favorite sounds in the world. I stuffed this show full of some of my favorites and spun some albums I have not really had time to give a proper listen to.  Needless to say I have now!  Anyways friends please stay safe, wash your hands and please stay home until this business is under control. Massive thanks to all the health care workers around the world. And one more thing, don’t forget to turn this up loud!! And a Happy Belated Birthday to Bob Wayne!

    Grinning Beggar’s Paddy Rock Podcast: Episode #56 – The 6 Hour St. Patrick’s Day Mother F&*ker!!

    So the CoronaVirus has us all a little bit freaked out, maybe a lot of bit.  Shows cancelled, bars closed and what the Hell has happened to St. Patrick’s Day?  Maybe some of you intrepid ones will find something to do, but I will keep my ass at home and wait for life to return to normal.  With everything closed in NJ and PA there isn’t feck all to do anyway.  So this year I put together a Paddy Rock Stimulus Package. That is right, I have replaced the usual Epic 4 Hour Podcast with a the 6 Hour St. Patrick’s Day Mother F****r – The only show you will need! I have it all covered, the Trad Tunes, The Drinking Songs, The Celtic Rock and Heaps O’ Celtic Punk. So get ready people it’s our 20th Birthday and we are going out with a f*****g BANG. We are either gonna get through this together, or I will see you in Hell.  Stay safe everyone and enjoy!

    Grinning Beggar’s Paddy Rock Podcast: Episode #55 – Loud, Proud & Punk!

    Grinning Beggar’s Paddy Rock Podcast: Episode #55 – Loud, Proud & Punk!

    As promised the New Year is here and so is a new Podcast. After last year I have decided to change things up a bit. Despite being here for 20 years Paddy Rock is still King among Celtic Music podcasts, make no mistake!  Albeit the scene has slowed down more than a little bit in the United States. but that is not to say it’s dead and neither are we.  Far from it in fact!  But to compensate for this downswing and to bring more listeners into the fold the Paddy Rock Podcast is expanding its listening selections. We have always embraced Paddy Punk and as such that typical has included Punk Rock and Working Class Anthems. So now you will find a heaping helping of Celtic Punk, Punk Rock, Street Rock & Roll and maybe some Metal on occasion. But do not worry, the focus is going to remain on Celtic Punk and Rock as it comes in!  Point in fact this episode I am debuting new tracks from Black Water Country and The Kilmaine Saints. So Paddy Rockers lets celebrate this new direction together. Crank up this episode and be Loud and Proud and Punk !

    As always thanks for listening ~ Phil (aka The Grinning Beggar).

    Grinning Beggar’s Paddy Rock Podcast: Episode #54 – Fancast #2

    Its taken a while, but Fancast #2 is done.  Massive thanks to my friend and supporter Johnny Piper for the awesome playlist. For those of you who do not  know,  Johnny is the power and the pipes behind the NY Based Celtic Punk band Alternative Ulster and as such has a Hell of an ear for the music. So this years second and final Fancast comes compliments of Johhny Piper. I think it’s a great way to see out 2019 and see in 2020. Pints and Pipes, truly a Celtic Punks dream come true! Thanks to all of those that have stuck with us over the last 20 years! Yes that is correct, Paddy Rock turned 20 this year! We are the ones who first made our mark in support of this genre and we will be here last!  At the end of the day, we will be standing tall. See you in the New Year Muckers and thanks again for the love! Much respect.

    As always thanks for listening ~ Phil (aka The Grinning Beggar).

wolfmansax

always a good time. was surprised to here my Hometown Band The McKrells.

elvisann92 ,

Great variety

I like how Grinning Beggar focuses on the music. There’s a lot of music, not much talking. I enjoy the theme shows, like pirate songs for International Talk Like a Pirate Day, or St. Poguetrick’s Day in honor of Shane McGowan’s 60th birthday and St. Patrick’s Day.
I also enjoy the variety, sometimes it’s less Celtic punk and more of other genres. I’m always pleasantly surprised by the music on the podcast.

Joemuldoon ,

amazing Celtic Punk podcast
