Marc Gunn News: St Pat’s Schedule + Free St Patrick’s Day Music from Me to You

Greetings Gunn Runners!

We're just days away from St. Patrick's Day. I have finished almost everything I planned to do for the holiday, except email you to wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day! So….

St. Patrick's Day Music from Me to You

St. Patrick's Day is also my birthday. In the great hobbit tradition, instead of asking for gifts for my birthday. I want to give you one. Or rather twenty…

Every year, I compile an article for the Celtic Music Magazine called “17 Free St. Patrick's Day MP3s“. I share a ZIP file filled with 17 Celtic MP3s by some of the best indie Celtic musicians online.

This year is no different. The article is finished. It even features a rough cut from an upcoming EP. The song is “A Drop of Nelson's Blood“. It's a new recording with me backed by the band Dogs in Doublets, out of California. It has a really cool old-timey feel. You can download along with 19 other awesome Celtic MP3s!

Please download the Celtic MP3s now. They are free!

I would humbly ask just one thing. Could you please share that webpage with your friends?

Tell your friends about it. Or forward this email. You can even join the Facebook event to Download 17 Free St. Patrick's Day MP3s for 2012.

My hope is to get thousands of people listening and downloading these free (and legal songs).

Just imagine how cool that would be.

Imagine tens of thousands of people heading to my websites to hear the music of all these great artists, including me. Many bands live that. I can only dream… With your help, you can make that dream a reality.

If you're a big fan of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast, there's a St. Patrick's Day music special there too.

In fact, there are TWO for this year. Plus, there's my St. Patrick's Day Podcast and my Pub Songs Podcast.

I offer a LOT of Celtic music for St. Patrick's Day. So please help spread the word.

Thanks and have a happy and safe St. Patrick's Day yourself.

Marc Gunn, The Celtfather
