July always feels like the month of freedom for me. Not only do we celebrate Independence Day in America, but in 2005, I turned music into a full-time profession. I even started my Irish & Celtic Music Podcast at the end of July which has gone on to win numerous awards. So in honor of freedom and liberty, I scoured my library to find songs for special Celtic Music Freedom playlist.
You can find many of these songs through my iTunes playlist. Otherwise click the CD link to find what you can through Amazon. You will love this music. Enjoy!
“Call of Freedom” by Whirly Jig
“Freedom Come Aa Ye” by Trochrague
“Liberty” by Brian Leo
from A Bottle O’ The Best – Three Centuries Of Scottish Folksongs
Cats. Kilts. Science Fiction. Irish drinking songs. Nowhere else but from the bizarre imagination of Marc Gunn would those four elements be so neatly integrated. Marc Gunn riotously combines Renaissance festival fanaticism with Irish drinking and Sci Fi fandom into a satirical jam session between Jonathan Coulton and The Clancy Brothers. Gunn is an award-winning Celtic folk musician. Armed with an autoharp, he mesmerizes audiences with an enthusiasm that crosses Elvis Presley with Shane MacGowan. He is the Chief Editor of the Celtic Music Magazine and host of the award-winning Irish & Celtic Music Podcast. Gunn is currently raising money for his latest album Celtic Music Is Freedom through his own personal Kickstarter-like crowdfunding project.
