...dedicated to helping independent Celtic musicians be heard,
Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) March 12, 2011
St. Patrick's Day invites everyone to be Irish for the day! Celtic music, traditional or contemporary, can touch the heart, tickle the funny bone, and cause the feet to move more than nearly any other music. The popularity of the music and the St. Patrick's Day party continues to grow thanks to the success in part of The Chieftains, Celtic Woman, The Clancy Brothers, and Riverdance. This year Celtic music fans can go beyond the traditional food and green beer, and tap into the St. Patrick's Day Podcast for non-stop Celtic entertainment!
The St. Patrick's Day Podcast is a free online radio show created by Marc Gunn, Celtic singer, autoharp player, and promoter of contemporary Irish music. Gunn, fondly referred to by many as "The Celtfather," is also host of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast, the largest radio show online of independent Celtic music. Each show is heard by thousands of subscribers and syndicated around the nation.
The St. Patrick's Day Podcast was born out of Gunn's successful network of Celtic music resources online that began with his own love of Celtic music and flourished when he first began publishing the "Celtic MP3s Music Magazine" in 2000.
This latest addition to the party is pure Celtic fun. It is great to listen to for a few friends, or an enormous affair for your entire neighborhood. It is the contemporary Celtic sound that has turned Celtic music into the raging success it is today!
Gunn states that he created the podcast for two reasons:
"The first reason is that I want to introduce you to some of the best independent Celtic music that you can find online... The second reason is because I am dedicated to helping independent Celtic musicians be heard."
With the St. Patrick's Day Podcast, Gunn succeeds in both endeavors. presenting six hours of music from a variety of musicians who deserve to be well-known. The artists perform Celtic music in a variety of styles in each episode. The mix of instrumental and vocal, slower tunes and more up-beat is perfect for providing interesting sounds without overwhelming conversation.
It is truly a St. Patrick's Day party not to be missed. The St. Patrick's Day Podcast can be found online at http://www.stpatricksdayparty.net/podcast.shtml.
