People often associate St. Patrick's Day as a time for Irish drinking songs and green beer. However, it all starts as a kid. I recorded an album of St. Patrick's Day Songs for Kids because I wanted to celebrate the children who find their love of Celtic music through the holiday. This week, I'm gonna share my new album of Celtic kids songs in its entirety, plus a great Irish Celtic songs and tunes from Keltic Kudzu, Sharon Shannon, Nancy Daily Green, Culann's Hounds, Sarah Dinan, FiddleSticks, Ed Miller, Marc Gunn

Every year, I take a small group of Celtic music fans to exotic locations around the world. We don’t travel in big tour buses and see everything. Instead, we stay in one area. We get to Know the region through its culture, history, and legends. Plus, I bring you some great Celtic music by me and other Celtic artists. The 2015 trip is now full.
