NEW YORK (www.stpatricksdayparty.net) - What do you get when you mix green beer with a Celtic musician born on St. Pat's? Marc Gunn, Celtic musician, Scots-Irishman and publisher of the Celtic MP3s Music
Magazine. Inspired by his favorite holiday to offer something new, Gunn has announced the creation of his Saint Patrick's Day Party website (https://www.stpatricksdayparty.net/).
The site offers free downloads of classic Irish drinking songs as well as a wealth of information about the history of the holiday and holiday happenings in the Austin area. Gunn, unlike some other Celtic musicians, revels in the classic, Saint Paddy's Day playlist. Visitors can download perennial favorites such as "Whiskey in the Jar", "The Wild Rover", "Finnegan's Wake", "The Unicorn Song" and, you guessed it, "Danny Boy".
The MP3s available are taken from his band, the Brodingnanian Bards fifth studio CD entitled Songs of Ireland for St. Patrick's Day. According to a review in the Austin Chronicle "...the Austin-based Bards are masters of traditional folk. Like a Celt-Renaissance They Might Be Giants, albums like Marked by Great Size and their latest, A Faire to Remember are equal parts lilting melodies and good humor. Their song "Tolkien" is an unexpected MP3 hit."
"I wanted to share my love of St. Patrick's Day since we started playing the music", says Gunn. "So I set up this website to give away a few free music downloads of St. Patrick's Day music. I found some great Irish clip art, and a few other cool things. I want to share them all with you". There is no doubt that Gunn is passionate about this celebrated holiday of the Emerald Isle, so grab a pint and your ipod and let the revelry begin.
