Music for a frigid St. Patrick's Day

Got several inches of snow since yesterday. (About 3-4", with deeper drifts.) Currently it's 26 degrees F out with a windchill of 17 degrees. There's still some freezing rain (more like freezing drizzle) but the snow has a nice crust of ice on it for me to chop through when I shovel. :P

There may be more snow later on this afternoon and evening too. Joy. :-/

While I'm waiting for it to warm up a bit more before I venture outside, I'll be watching the St. Patrick's Day parade on TV and downloading and listening to marcgunn's podcast of Irish and Celtic music. (Click banner below.)

Twice-monthly Celtic and Irish music by the best independent Celtic music groups. Irish drinking songs, Scottish folk songs, bagpipes, music from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, Wales, Nova Scotia, Galicia, Australia and the United States. Hosted by Marc Gunn of the Brobdingnagian Bards.
