I play a lot of drinking songs, but I don't spend a lot of time drinking. That's because St. Patrick's Day is not just about drinking. It's about the music. Some of the best Celtic music explodes across the airwaves, in pubs, and at festivals as we celebrate our united Celtic heritage and the music that we love.
Free St. Patrick's Day Music
I'm pleased to share more Celtic music with the seventh annual edition of “17 Celtic MP3s for St. Patrick's Day”. I dug through the archives of bands who submitted music over the past year and compiled a fantastic list of great Irish and Celtic music for you to enjoy. Best of all, the songs you will download are 100% free and legal.
My hope is that you will find a song that you love so much that you will find a new favorite band. You will visit their webpage. You'll buy a CD. And you might even share this free album with other Celtic music fans. That's it. No catches. Just listen and enjoy!
