Podcast Librarian’s Review:

Here’s one for all the Irish music lovers. The title of the podcast basically describes it all! Each week, Marc Gunn compiles a playlist of Irish/Celtic music around a theme. For a little over an hour weekly, you can enjoy a variety of jigs, reels, ballads, and other types of songs—some instrumental and some vocal. I usually like the majority of the songs, but a great feature is that each episode is organized by chapter (song), so if you don’t like one, you can skip right to the next. Likewise, if you love a song, all the info about it is right there on your screen so you can download it and support your favorite independent artist. This is a great pod to get you in the mood for Paddy’s Day and then to listen to all year round.
