Celebrating St. Patrick's Day

We kept this year's celebration of St. Patrick's Day rousing but and simple: Selections from great new Celtic recordings. An old cut from our friend John Whelan snuck in because he has a local concert coming up to celebrate his first 30 years in the world of Celtic music. May he have at least 30 more.
