Seasonal Music with an Irish Flavor.



Whatever holidays you celebrate (or don't) during the months of December and January, post a favorite piece of seasonal music performed by someone identifiably Irish.

Here's a piece that never fails to cheer me up: "The Boar's Head Carol" from The Bells of Dublin by the Chieftains.

I've always liked that carol, and the group approached it here with a very definite spirit of fun.

Thanks for putting that up!
