  • There are three new Celtic Christmas albums that are now available. The Celtic Kitchen Party has an album called One Celtic Christmas. I interviewed the band for Celtic Christmas Music podcast. It’s upbeat and fun. You’ll hear some of the songs on upcoming episodes. The McDades have a new Christmas album as well. I’ve barely touched the surface of that one. But I have fallen in love with The Gothard Sisters new album, A Celtic Christmas. I have an interview with Greta from the band that’ll be out in early December. Next episode is out on Sunday, Nov 19.
