Show 149 – St. Bridgid’s Day

posted in: Past Shows

This week, Katie and Joe celebrate St. Bridgid’s Day, or Imbolc, which is the halfway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. St. Bridgid is the Christian assimilation of the Celtic goddess, Brid, and is one of the patron saints of Ireland, along with Patrick and Columba. Although the ancient Celts celebrated Imbolc as the first day of Spring, here in the high desert, it’s definitely still winter.

This week, we feature new releases from Karen Matheson and Ship in the Clouds

This week, we play tracks from: Páraic Mac Donnchadha, Celtic Fiddle Festival, Emer Mayock, Liz Carroll & Mick Moloney, The Ivy Leaf, Martin Quinn & Angelina Carberry, La Lugh, Kathleen Conneely, Verena Commins & Julie Langan, Karen Matheson, Ship in the Clouds, Alan Kelly Gang, Goitse, Barrule, and Caroline Keane & Tom Delany.

Our FairPlé score this week: 53
