Celtic Cavalcade: The Irish Music Roundup

Today marks the beginning of St. Patrick’s Day. (If you still think that St. Patrick’s Day is just a one-day celebration, well, then you probably haven’t lived here in O’Nippertown very long, have you?)

NOTE: Please be careful out there. And, oh yeah, stay away from the green beer and stick with the Guinness, will ya?

So, here’s a little round-up of where to go to hear some great Celtic music between now and Wednesday. If anyone has any other suggestions, please bring ’em on:
