Get in touch with your Celtic ancestry

This podcast never fails to lighten my mood and make me feel like dancing (no one wants to see that though, trust me). I listen while doing laundry, running errands, or when I just need a boost!

Best Celtic Music Cast out there

This podcast has the best variety of traditional and contemporary Celtic Music out there. It’s introduced me to many new artists and new approaches to the genre. It’s been a welcome distraction throughout the pandemic. Can’t recommend it enough.

New music from the auld sod

I’ve always been a fan of Irish music of all types dating back to my childhood when I went with my parents to pubs from County Kerry and County Galway to County Kings and County Bronx. The Irish and Celtic Music Podcast presented by musician Mark Gunn allows me a weekly wallow in jigs & reels and the occasional rock & roll rave-up for an hour or so.
