Happy St Patrick's Day! What will you be doing for the holiday?
Did you get to hear last week's three-hour special?
Are you ready for 17 Free Celtic MP3s to spice up your St Patrick's Day party?
LET'S GET STARTED
I don't remember what year I first published my annual "17 Free Celtic MP3s for St Patrick's Day" article. I think it was 2007 (if anyone remembers, let me know). Nevertheless, this article is one of my most-anticipated of the year. Not only do I get to highlight some incredible bands in the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast, but you get to download every song in the show... FOR FREE!
What a great St Patrick's Day gift!
I'm very proud of this podcast. If you're not yet subscribed, I hope you will give it a listen, add it to your weekly podcast feed. Then sign up to our Celtic Music Magazine too and Get 34 MORE Celtic MP3s for FREE!
SUPPORT THE BANDS
This podcast and these free MP3s would not be possible without the generosity of the Celtic bands who have so generously allowed me to share them with you. That's incredibly cool.
So I want to ask the favor. Listen to the podcast and download the MP3s. When you are done, see which artist(s) or song(s) you love. Then support the artists.
Here are several quick ways to do just that:
- Like them on Facebook.
- Follow them on Spotify
- Subscribe to their mailing list.
- See their shows.
- Share their songs on Twitter.
- Review their album on iTunes.
- Best of all, buy their music and merch!
Oh! I also started a Top Irish & Celtic Music playlist on Spotify. We have over three hundred followers. Follow and listen to the playlist as another way to support these artists. The more people who follow it, the more money our artists will earn.
Thank you so much for supporting independent Celtic music and for celebrating Celtic culture through the music. Have a safe and wonderful St. Patrick's Day.
