TDP Playlist: St. Patrick’s Day Soundtrack

20070731084953_dubliners_dsc_3438_bSt. Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday that honors the heritage of the Irish. What better time to celebrate Irish music? Here is the perfect soundtrack to your corned beef and cabbage dinner. It ranges from songs by popular artists like the Dropkick Murphys  to traditional Irish ballads. It should have something for everyone around your dinner table.

 

After you’ve finished dinner, after you’ve tipped your glasses and uttered “sláinte” to your loved ones and those who have fought for the love of Ireland, after you’ve practiced your Irish step dancing, after you’ve searched your yard for four-leaf clovers and rainbows ending in a pot of gold, after you’ve completed your leprechaun traps, please consider taking a look at the New York Daily News‘ exploration of the musical contributions of the Irish. You can read the article here. We also suggest that you check out boston.com’s Shamrock-n-Roll playlist. Today is not only a day to wear green, it’s a day to celebrate culture – a culture rich in musical tradition.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Devils! May the road rise up to meet you.
