March Playlist: Luck of the Irish

Each month for our Almanac we do a playlist or two of song collections. This is music to center you deeply in the season. Here we present two playlists for the week of St. Patricks Day. The first we put together. The second is crowd sourced from Facebook suggestions!

You can hear the toasting, raucous singing, and feet stomping on the floorboards of the local tavern in this first list of Irish songs. So, Erin Go Bragh! (translated- Ireland forever!)
